  • 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.
