Grilled Chicken Marinades

This chicken marinade recipe will remind you of your last Caribbean cruise – or if you’ve never been on one (why not?), this will give you an idea of what you’ve been missing.

The wine will tenderize the chicken breasts in addition to adding a spicy sweet flavor. Any white wine will do the trick, but really try to find a Riesling; it will definitely make a difference.

The boneless skinless chicken breasts are marinated in mango pureed with Riesling and spices and grilled to perfection. Prep time includes time for marinating. 

Course: Main Course
Cuisine: Grilling
Servings: 8
Calories: 260 kcal
  • 8 boneless skinless chicken breasts
  • 1 mango peeled and chopped
  • 1 cup Riesling white wine
  • 2 cloves garlic chopped
  • 2 tablespoons fresh lemon juice
  • 2 tablespoons fresh lime juice
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground cumin
  • 1/4 teaspoon dried thyme
  • 1/4 teaspoon dried oregano
  • 1/4 teaspoon chili powder
  • Kosher salt and ground black pepper
  1. All of the ingredients except for the chicken breasts are going to be pureed in a blender. Make sure the mango and garlic are chopped in small pieces - the puree should come out very smooth.
  2. Once all the ingredients are blended, set it aside in a covered container and refrigerate it for 30 minutes.
  3. Pour half of the pureed mango grilled chicken marinade into a baggie or covered container with the chicken breasts.
  4. Refrigerate them at least 4 hours or overnight. Reserve the remaining half of the puree for basting.
  5. Light a charcoal barbecue or gas grill. Shake off excess marinade from the chicken breasts and discard it.
  6. Grill the chicken breasts, turning them once, until they are cooked through - there should be no pink in the center of the breasts. Start basting the breasts with the remaining puree about 5 minutes before they are done.
  7. Remove the grilled chicken breasts to a warmed platter and serve warm.

Food For Thought – As with most grilled chicken breast recipes, any other part of the chicken would do just as well with this mango Riesling marinade – just remove the skin before marinating.

Pieces with bones, such as thighs and drumsticks, will take a little longer to grill but will be just as tender and flavorful.

Good To Know – The sauce will gain strength the longer is kept.

If you want to double the recipe to use for other dishes, consider cutting back on the garlic, so that the garlic flavor doesn’t become overwhelming.

Most Grilled Chicken Marinades will last a week if kept covered in the refrigerator.
