Mango Coconut Chicken with Corn Salsa Recipe

Mango Coconut Chicken with Corn Salsa Recipe

Last week I prepped Mango Coconut Chicken Recipe with Corn Salsa and easy clean-out-the-pantry turkey soup. I really enjoyed the Mango Coconut Chicken. It was kind of different than what I normally do with chicken but it was super flavorful and marinating it overnight allowed it to stay very moist after cooking. I baked the chicken and it was delicious but I would recommend grilling it when the weather is good. I would also recommend using this marinade on other cuts of chicken, not just breasts. This would be so delicious on drumsticks and thighs!

This week I’m making Thai Chicken Salad with Peanut Sauce and Low-Calorie Zuppa Toscana which are both absolute WINNERS and I will definitely get the recipes up on the blog as soon as I can! While you wait for those, check out my other soups and salads! Pin your faves and let me know in the comments below which recipes you’ve tried so far!
