Broiled Chicken with Mango Ginger and Cilantro

  • 4 boneless chicken breast halves with skin
  • 1 T. olive oil
  • 1 T. minced peeled fresh ginger
  • 4 large garlic cloves, minced
  • 1 1/2 c. chopped peeled mango
  • 2 T. chopped fresh cilantro
  • 1 T. white wine vinegar

Preheat the broiler. Lightly oil the broiler pan. Using a mallet or rolling pin, pound the chicken lightly between sheets of waxed paper to an even 1/2-inch thickness. Season the chicken with salt and pepper. Place the chicken, skin side up, on the prepared pan. Broil it until the skin is golden brown, about 4 minutes. Turn the chicken over and broil until cooked through but still juicy, about 3 minutes longer.

Meanwhile, heat the olive oil in a heavy small skillet over medium heat. Add the ginger and garlic; sauté 2 minutes. Add the mango; sauté until it's heated through and beginning to soften, about 3 minutes. Remove from the heat and mix in the cilantro and vinegar. Season the dish with salt and pepper. Place the chicken on plates. Top it with the warm mango mixture and serve.
