Honey-Glazed Chicken with Mango Salsa

Use mango to make a honey-glazed chicken that children will love.


Prep time: 15 Minutes

Cook time: 10 Minutes

Total time: 25 Minutes

Yield: 4


  • 3 Tbsp. reduced-sodium soy sauce (use wheat/gluten-free if needed)
  • 2 1/3 Tbsp. honey
  • ½ tsp. minced garlic (about 1 clove)
  • 1 Tbsp. fresh ginger, peeled and minced
  • 1 ½ lbs. boneless, skinless chicken breasts, cut in half crosswise (the short way)
  • 1 large mango, peeled and cubed
  • ¼ cup fresh cilantro, chopped
  • ½ lime, juice only, about 1 Tbsp.
  • ¼ tsp. crushed red pepper flakes (optional)


  1. Preheat the broiler and put the oven rack 3 – 4 inches from the heating element. Spray a broiler pan with nonstick cooking spray.
  2. In a medium bowl, combine the soy sauce, 2 Tbsp. honey, the garlic and ginger. Remove 2 Tbsp. of the mixture and set it aside. Add the chicken to the bowl with the sauce and turn it until it is coated. Place the chicken on the broiling pan and cook it for 5 minutes until it turns golden. Flip the chicken and spoon the reserved sauce over the top. Broil it for about 5 more minutes until it is cooked through (the chicken should no longer be pink in the middle or its internal temperature should be 165 degrees.) Remove it from the oven.
  3. Meanwhile, in a medium serving bowl, gently toss together the mango, cilantro, lime juice, 1 tsp. honey, and crushed red pepper flakes (optional). Serve the chicken topped with the mango salsa.
