Caribbean Mango Chicken

MaryLu Tyndall shares one of her favorite pirate recipes with us:

Caribbean Honey-Spiced Chicken with Mango recipe
1/4 cup honey
1/4 cup fresh lemon juice
2 teaspoons freshly grated lemon peel
1 ripe mango, peeled and diced
1 small onion, peeled and quartered
2 fresh jalapeƱo peppers, halved and seeded
2 teaspoons paprika
2 teaspoons vegetable oil
1 1/2 teaspoons garlic salt.
1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon fresh ground pepper
½ teaspoon ground allspice
4 boneless skinless chicken breast halves
1 tablespoon vegetable oil
In a small bowl, combine honey, lemon juice and lemon peel; whisk until well-blended. Remove 1/4 cup of mixture to food processor container; set aside. Add mango to honey lemon mixture in bowl; toss to coat. Store in refrigerator.
Add onion, jalapenos, paprika, oil, garlic salt, cinnamon, pepper and allspice to honey-lemon mixture in food processor container. Process until very finely chopped, scrape down sides when necessary. Spread mixture evenly over both sides of chicken breasts. Spread oil in 13 x 9-inch baking pan. Arrange chicken breasts in pan. Bake at 375 degrees F for 25 to 30 minutes or until cooked through. Remove chicken to serving platter; top with reserved mango.
Yields 4 servings.

Thanks so much, MaryLu!
