5 from 1 reviews


  • 4 boneless chicken breasts (pounded lightly to thin out if they are too thick) 1 1/2 to 2 pounds
  • 1 cup mango nectar. {I used Philippine Brand}
  • ½ cup balsamic vinegar
  • 2 tbsp olive oil
  • 2 tbsp dried thyme
  • salt and freshly ground black pepper
  • 1 large RIPE mango, peeled and chopped


  1. Combine chicken in a large zip bag with mango nectar, vinegar, olive oil and thyme- along with a generous sprinkle of salt and pepper. Zip the bag closed and move the chicken around in the bag to coat with the marinade.
  2. Lie the bag flat in the refrigerator for at least one hour and up to 2 hours, turning the bag every so often to redistribute the marinade.
  3. Preheat the grill to medium-high heat. Spray the grill with grilling spray (or rub the grates with oil). Drain the marinade from the chicken and grill about 4 minutes per side,basting with marinade every minute or until the chicken is cooked through.
  4. Serve grilled chicken topped with chopped mango.
