This month's Bon Appitee magazine is great. There are lots and lots of great recipes inside. In one section, G. Paltrow is highlighted with her new cookbook. This is a recipe from there. They have it with fish, which I don't eat, so I made it with chicken. It was really, really good. They also suggest (in anohter section) to submerge your avocado half into ice water to help maintain the great green color. I tried it and it worked really well. It will keep it nice and green for a while.
1 cup Mango, diced into 1' pieces
1 cup cherry tomatoes, quartered
1 cup avocado, diced into 1' pieces
4 basil leaves, thinly sliced
3 TBSP freshly squeezed lime juice
3 TBSP olive oil
4 chicken breast
In a plastic baggie, marinate the chicken breast with 2 TBSP olive oil and 2 TBSP lime juice. Add Salt and pepper for taste. Let marinate for 20 minutes (but no longer 1 hour).
Preheat oven to 350' or grill.
Place in baking pan and Bake for 20 minutes, broil for 3-5 minutes if baking. If grilling, place on grill and cook about 7-10/side until chicken is tender.
While cooking, combine mangoes, cherry tomatoes, avocados, basil leaves and remaining olive oil and lime juice in a bowl. Let sit for 5-10 minutes.
Plate chicken and generously scoop salsa over top. Serve immediately.
You can also use white fish instead of chicken breast. Same recipe and ingredients as above.
I have served it alone or with couscous or rice. But a great summer recipe.
