Just a quick post to tell you about din-din and share a super easy recipe that was very refreshing on this HOT (83 degrees!) day – BBQ Chicken with Avocado Mango Salsa!
Once again my beloved griddler made an appearance as the appliance du jour this evening, along with the sauce du jour – Famous Dave’s Rich & Sassy BBQ Sauce! I simply marinated two chicken breasts in the sauce for about 10 minutes, then placed them on my piping hot griddler.
Like a George Foreman grill, the griddler also whisks away extra fat and collects it in a removable tray underneath the appliance. Seriously, what can’t this baby do?! I’m certain I’ll come home one day to find it dusting the house and folding the laundry.
Earlier, while the chicken was marinating, I whipped up an incredibly easy salsa.
Avocado Mango Salsa
Makes 4 servings.
- 1 mango
- 1/2 avocado
- 1/2 jalapeno pepper
- 1/4 small red onion
- 1 handful cilantro
- 1/2 lime
Chop all ingredients and add to a small bowl. Add lime juice and salt, then taste. Adjust seasonings if necessary.
Plate your chicken, top with some chunky salsa, add some fresh veggies and feast!
You need to run, nay – sprint, and make this salsa right.now! It is so cool and refreshing. I was eating it by the chicken, spoon and chip full, and can confirm that it is simply divine all three ways.
The flavors went so well with the tangy BBQ sauce and the combination of textures – crunchy, creamy, chewy – were fantastic!
A quick two minute zap from the microwave gave my broccoli a nice tender-crisp bite. Love me some broccoli, don’t ya’ know.

Well, true to my word – I will be tuning into America’s Next Top Model at 7:00 (What? 26 year olds shouldn’t still be watching ANTM? I didn’t get the memo…) and hitting the hay at 8:00. It’ll still be light out and the neighborhood children will still be playing in their yards, but I’ll be sleeping like a little angel. O:)
What kind of salsas do you like? Fresh or jarred? Chunky or smooth? Mild or Hot? Do you ever make your own?
