Admit, that title not only caught your eye but made your mouth water a wee bit didn't it? Can I just say "Oh my word" so simple yet so delicious! Today I had a chiropractor appointment scheduled late in the after noon (why did I do that???) so I knew I would be rushed to get started in dinner once I got home. I laid on the magnificent roller bed and thought of food. Lots of good food, over and over again. I knew it had to be chicken but nothing was coming to me. After the appointment I headed to Fred Meyer to stock up on lip balm for the last time when I passed the cooler with a beautiful yummy looking tub of Peach Mango Salsa. BAM! Dinner was found.
This takes about 30 minutes or so depending on your rice. Someone (ahem) plopped a floating duck in my bowl of soaking brown rice so for tonight we had white (ya ya I know....). So good though you must try. You must try it tomorrow. You might die if you don't.
PS Does anyone have a great Peach Mango Salsa they want to share? I am going to preserve some of this deliciousness come summer time!
Cilantro Lime Chicken with Peach Mango Salsa (Serves approx 6)
3 cubed chicken breasts
2 tsp minced dry onion
1/4-1/2 garlic powder (fresh would rock too! I was out)
1 bunch fresh cilantro, minced
1 can pinto beans
1 tsp chili powder (more or less to your taste.)
1 tsp cumin (more or less to your taste)
Salt and pepper
1/2 fresh lime
4 cups cooked rice (whatever variety you prefer)
Peach Mango Salsa (I used Chachies brand but any that you prefer would work)
In a large skillet, drizzle olive oil and add chicken breasts. Salt and pepper to taste. Add onions and garlic powder. Stir, cover and cook for a couple minutes. When chicken is nearly cooked through add pinto beans, chili powder, cumin and minced cilantro. Cover for a couple minutes. Remove from heat.
Serve chicken over rice with lettuce, tomato, green onion and cheese. Top with Peach Mango Salsa. Sit back and enjoy a simple and summer inspired meal.
