Grilled Chicken with Mango Salsa and Coconut Rice

This dish just reminds me of vacation. When my husband and I visited San Juan a few years ago, I was addicted to this chicken and mango salad. While day dreaming of tropical destinations today that salad inspired my dinner idea.

This coconut rice is so good, the coconut milk gives it a richness that almost makes the rice taste like a casserole. The freshness of  mango salsa really pairs nicely with the grilled chicken and rich rice dish. I hope you enjoy this as much as we did.

Instructions
  1. In a saucepan combine Jasmine Rice, Coconut Milk, Coconut Water, Salt. Mix and bring to a boil. Once you bring up to boil, reduce to low, put a lid on and cook for 18-20 minutes or until liquid is absorbed.
  2. In a small dish combine Softened Butter, Lime, Garlic, Chili Powder and Salt. Set aside to baste the chicken while grilling.
  3. While rice is cooking grill chicken (on the grill ideally, but a grill pan will work) about 3-4 minutes per side, depending on thickness. Baste with Chili, Garlic Butter.
  4. While chicken and rice are cooking assemble salsa. Dice Mangos, mince Red Onions, and finely chop Cilantro. Squeeze in the other half of lime.
  5. Plate Grilled Chicken topped with Mango Salsa and Coconut Rice on the side. You can shape your rice by packing into a small bowl and flipping over on the plate.
