I have a love for chicken. It is my favorite go-to meat when I want something healthy and delicious. This recipe for Creole Chicken with Mango Salsa I discovered several years ago when I got one of those mailing packages with a few test recipes inside. My husband and I had just discovered that we liked spicy foods so I cooked it up giving it a try.
it was out of this world delicious — and spicy!
The one thing about this recipe that you need to know is that you need the mango salsa to cut through the heat. If you try to eat this creole grilled chicken by itself, your mouth will be on fire. The mango salsa is just the right amount of sweet to cut through the heat 🙂
Make this recipe. You will be SO glad you did!
