“Treat your summer barbecue guests to this delicious grilled recipe instead of the usual hamburgers and hot dogs. From W.W.”

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Preheat grill to medium heat.
  2. Combine cinnamon, allspice, garlic salt, thyme, 1/4 teaspoon of salt, black pepper, cayenne pepper and 1 tablespoon of lime juice on a plate; mix to a paste. Brush both sides of chicken with seasoning paste; set aside for 10 minutes to allow flavors to blend.
  3. Meanwhile, combine mango, shallot, jalapeno, cilantro, remaining tablespoon of lime juice and 1/8 teaspoon of salt in a bowl.
  4. Place chicken on preheated grill. Grill for 10 minutes; flip and grill until cooked through, about 6 minutes more. Cut each chicken thigh in half to serve. Yields 3 pieces of chicken (1 1/2 thighs total) and about 1/2 cup of salsa per serving.
  5. *Get crafty with leftovers: If you’re only cooking for 2 people, still make this recipe for 4 servings. Then combine the leftover chicken with 2 cups of arugula and 1 cup of cooked asparagus for an entrée salad another night.
