I love so many things right now and one of them being that mangoes are cheap cheap cheap! They are just finishing their season and are 2 for a dollar!
I decided to be a little creative with them by adding them to a chicken dish.
Mango Strawberry Basil Chutney
1 mango cubed
1-2 cups strawberries diced
4 TB fresh basil
2-3TB lime juice
Mix it up and serve over my favorite orange/lime chicken dish! :-)
Lemonade /Lime Chicken Breasts
1 cup lemonade
3TB lime juice
1/2 c diced onions
4-6 chicken breasts
Soak chicken in juices for 1-2 hours then pour entire mixture in oven safe pan and bake covered at 350F for 30-40 minutes (until chicken is fully cooked)
A complete Carribean inspired meal like this should also have rice and beans or sweet corn bread. yum!
The sun has been rising later and later and it has been harder and harder to get out of bed. It also has been a long time since I have been able to start running everday again since being sick. I managed to get out for a 4 miler this morning and felt pretty good. I hope to increase my mileage up to 5-6 miles by the end of the week again ;-)
Today is such a beautiful day! High 70s, breezy, and sunny! Now is the time of year I love living here again!
