Sticky mango chicken skewers
Fresh and tasty, these mango chicken skewers are a must-try for dinner. They’ll be your new go-to favourite!
Start with the sticky mango marinade. Put the mango in a blender and add honey, sriracha or chilli sauce, if you’re using it, garlic, ginger, cumin and coriander. Blend until almost smooth. Put the chicken in a bowl and pour over the mango marinade. Toss to combine. Cover and pop in the fridge for an hour to let the flavours develop. Thread the marinated chicken evenly onto the skewers.
Heat a barbecue grill or chargrill on medium. Cook the chicken on the grill, turning as you go, for 10 minutes or until cooked through. Transfer the skewers to a plate and cover them with foil. Set aside to rest for 5 minutes.
Now for the salsa. Take a medium bowl and add mango, avocado, spring onion, lime juice, chilli, if you’re using it, and mint. Stir it all together and season with salt and pepper. To serve the skewers, put them on plates and spoon over the mango salsa.
