Mojo Chicken with Avocado and Mango Salsa

Serves 4
Time 8 hr 40 min
Garlic and citrus zest come together in a class Cuban-style mojo marinade that is perfect on chicken, steak or tofu. We used the same flavors in a Caribbean-style mango salsa that pairs perfectly with easy stove-top chicken breasts, though grilled would be perfect, too!

Method

To prepare the chicken, in a large, shallow dish, combine cumin, cilantro, garlic, jalapeño, 1/4 cup of the oil, orange juice and lime juice; stir to combine.

Add chicken and turn to coat.

Cover and refrigerate for at least 2 hours and up to overnight.

Meanwhile, prepare the salsa.

In a medium bowl, combine orange juice, lime juice, oil, garlic, zest, honey, salt, onion and mango.

Cover and refrigerate until using, adding avocado just before serving.

Heat remaining 1 tablespoon oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat.

Remove chicken from marinade and discard marinade.

Add chicken to skillet and cook until browned and cooked through, about 8 to 10 minutes on each side.

Transfer chicken to a platter, let rest for 5 minutes then cut each chicken breast horizontally into 1/3-inch thick slices. Serve with salsa.
