A year ago I posted a recipe that is still one of the best recipes I think I’ve ever posted on this blog. It was for Lime Margarita Chicken. My family loves that recipe and I try to always have a bottle of Lime Margarita in my pantry in case we get the craving to make that recipe. Well..the other day I was at the grocery store and saw a Mango Margarita Mix. Oh no! I am in trouble. I didn’t realize there were so many delicious versions of Margarita Mix. I know this margarita syrup is basically sugar and fruit juice, but it sure makes a simple and delicious base to a marinade. So, my recipe wheels started turning and before you know it, this Mango Margarita Chicken was created. Wow. All I have to say is, this meal is fantastic!! It is sweet, a little sour, full of flavor, has a little spicy kick and the combination all together is superb. The marinated chicken becomes so moist and tender. The fresh salsa breaks up the sweetness and adds a little heat to the dish. And their’s a surprising hint of curry in the sauce which brings the flavors in the dish to a whole new level.
I can’t wait for you to try this recipe! Let me know what you think. Your family is going to love it, I promise 😉
