Ingredients:

  • 2 boneless, skinless chicken breasts
  • 1 cup of your favorite BBQ sauce
  • 1 ripe mango, diced
  • 1/2 red onion, thinly sliced
  • 1/4 cup fresh cilantro, chopped
  • 1/4 cup chipotle mayonnaise
  • 4 cups mixed salad greens
  • 1 avocado, sliced
  • 1 lime, juiced
  • Salt and pepper to taste

Instructions:

Step 1: Marinate the chicken

In a bowl, combine the chicken breasts and BBQ sauce. Make sure the chicken is well coated. Cover the bowl and let it marinate in the refrigerator for at least 30 minutes, or overnight for maximum flavor.

Step 2: Grill the chicken

Preheat your grill to medium-high heat. Remove the chicken from the marinade and discard any excess sauce. Grill the chicken for about 6-8 minutes per side, or until it reaches an internal temperature of 165°F (74°C). Once cooked, remove the chicken from the grill and let it rest for a few minutes before slicing.

Step 3: Prepare the salad

In a large bowl, combine the diced mango, sliced red onion, and chopped cilantro. Add the mixed salad greens and toss everything together. Season with salt, pepper, and lime juice to taste.

Step 4: Assemble the salad

Divide the salad mixture onto plates or bowls. Slice the grilled chicken and place it on top of the salad. Drizzle the chipotle mayonnaise over the chicken. Garnish with sliced avocado and additional cilantro if desired.

Step 5: Serve and enjoy!
