"This is a sweet marinade great for chicken. We use the chicken on top of a garden salad or wrapped in tortillas with hummus and veggies."

  1. Place mango, garlic, water, lemon juice, olive oil, and Riesling into a blender. Season with thyme, oregano, cilantro, and onion powder. Blend until smooth.

  3. Preheat an outdoor grill for medium-high heat.

very good recipe,even though i dont eat mango everyone loved it .i added a tablespoon of honey n ginger to the marinade to enhance the flavour you know giving it that good old island kick (lol) n it was good!


Followed recipe exactly. Chicken was moist but we were disappointed in the flavor. Expected more mango flavor or at least a slight sweetness from the mango and it just wasn't there although the mango itself was very sweet. There was a slight bitterness although we used a quality riesling as well. We'll use the leftover marinade as a salad dressing with a veggie/fruit salad, but wouldn't make it again .

LOVED this! I tried to stay true to the recipe, except for ONE thing... I did not have mangoes, so I substituted PEACHES instead. I figured they were fairly similar in texture & juiciness... Anyway, it was WONDERFUL!!! Everyone raved. Oh! I did add extra garlic cloves, because we are garlic freaks. Was actually looking for something lower in salt for a marinade. Everything else called for either teriyaki sauce or added salt. This was the best one I could find. Will definitely use this one again!
