Mango-Lime Grilled Chicken Thighs

This recipe is as easy as puree, marinate, grill.

It’s packed with tropical, summery flavors and tastes delicious with a side of steamed jasmine rice and a simple salad. It also freezes beautifully if you want to make an extra portion for another night. Just place the raw chicken thighs in a freezer-safe bag or container, top with marinade and freeze until you’re ready to use it. Then, defrost, grill and voila! A delicious, no-fuss dinner.

Enjoy!
