Prep Time: 10 minutes

Cook Time: 360 minutes

Serving size: 5 oz. of chicken + 2 oz. of sauce

Calories: 230 Calories


  • 2 mangoes, washed, peeled, pitted and roughly chopped

  • 1 bunch fresh cilantro (washed, chopped stems and all)

  • ¾ cup of zero-calorie Truvia Original Calorie-Free Sweetener Spoonable Jar***

  • 1 Tbsp of your favorite hot sauce

  • 2 tsp red wine vinegar

  • 1 cup of coconut milk

  • ½ red onion, diced

  • 2 Tbsp ginger, minced

  • 4 cloves garlic, peeled and minced

  • 1 fresh lime, washed, juice and zest

  • 2 Tbsp olive oil

  • 4 fl oz. of water

  • 2 tsp kosher salt

  • 1 tsp freshly cracked black pepper

  • 2 lbs boneless, skinless chicken breasts

  • Non-stick cooking spray


  • 1.

    Put the mangoes, cilantro, Truvia Original Sweetener, hot sauce, vinegar, coconut milk, onion, ginger, garlic, lime juice and oil in a food processor and puree until smooth, add water if too thick. Adjust salt and pepper to taste. You should have about one quart of marinade-split in half.

  • 2.

    Add the chicken with half the mango mixture to a plastic bag. Rub to coat the chicken with the mango puree. Refrigerate at least 6 to 8 hours to marinate.

  • 3.

    Put the other half of the mango mixture into a small saucepan with the water and simmer over low heat until thick, up to 20 minutes. Store sauce refrigerated and reheat before serving.

  • 4.

    Preheat a grill to medium-high heat. Spray with non-stick cooking spray so the chicken won't stick to the grill. Season chicken with salt and pepper and place on grill. Cook slowly to avoid burning. Turn heat down to medium and cook for about 20 minutes basting the chicken with marinade. Discard marinade that was in contact with raw chicken. For the last 10 minutes of cooking only use the stovetop sauce as a marinade.

  • 5.

    Cook chicken until reaching an internal temperature of 165° F. Slice the chicken and serve with steamed greens such as spinach. Spoon some of the cooked sauce over the chicken if desired.

  • 6.

    Refrigerate any leftovers.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from New Favorite Love this recipe and am making it for a third time now (trying in a crock-pot today!) I didn't care for sriracha's overpowering taste so I substituted with dried Thai chili flakes. Seriously so good. All the ingredients balance one another out and create a harmonious dish!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazinly delicious! I made this for supper and was in love the minute the first bite hit my mouth. A definite addition to my regular menus. I'm thinking I should make a large batch of this marinade and put it up in canning jars to savor through the winter.
