When was the last time you 1) bought a mango or 2) ate anything with mango in it?
✅ Not only do mangos bring a sweet and exotic flavor to the table, but they also contain a surprisingly long list of vitamins and minerals, as well as good-for-you antioxidants and plant compounds!
💛 They contain factors that help boost your immune system, promote healthy heart function, support your vision, help keep your hair and skin healthy, AND fight cancer!
🥭 If you want to take a recipe to the next level, think about adding mangos to it.
✅ Some ideas: salsa … smoothies … fruit salad … stirred into yogurt … or make a quick chutney that you can stir into bean dishes or serve with chicken or fish. Or you can just eat it as is!

- 1 lb boneless skinless chicken breasts
- sea salt and pepper, to taste
- 1 tsp cayenne pepper
- 2 ripe but firm mangoes, peeled and cut into 1-inch cubes
- 1 red onion, cut into 1-inch pieces
- 2 Tbsps unrefined coconut oil, melted
- fresh lime wedges, to serve
- fresh parsley, chopped, to garnish
- bamboo skewers soaked in water so they don’t burn or metal skewers
Soak your wooden skewers in water for at least 30 minutes, so they don’t burn on the grill.
Meanwhile; peel and chop the mangoes into 1-inch cubes. Cut the chicken into 1-inch chunks and sprinkle it with the seasonings.
Thread one chicken piece onto a skewer, followed by mango, onion, and so on, as shown in the photos.
Next, heat your grill pan or your outdoor grill to medium-high heat.
Lightly brush each skewer with coconut oil, then place them on your preheated grill.
Grill for 5-7 minutes on each side until chicken is just cooked through.
Garnish with freshly chopped parsley and serve with fresh lime wedges.
