Serves 4
Ingredients

For the Mango Salsa:
2 cups chopped Tommy Atkins mango
1/4 cup red onion
1/4 cup cilantro
1 teaspoon finely diced jalapeño
1/2 tablespoon lime juice
1/4 teaspoon salt and pepper
 
For the Jerk Chicken Rub:
3 tablespoons olive oil
1 tablespoon fresh thyme leaves, finely minced
1 tablespoon brown sugar
1 teaspoon paprika
1/2 teaspoon ground clove
1/2 teaspoon ground allspice
1/2 teaspoon onion powder
1/2 teaspoon cayenne pepper
1/2 teaspoon ground black pepper
3 cloves minced garlic
1 shallot finely minced
 
12 skewers, soaked in water
1 pound cubed chicken breast

Preparation

Combine salsa ingredients in a bowl and let sit to combine flavors.
 
For the rub, combine olive oil, spices, garlic and shallots in a large mixing bowl. Add chicken and toss to coat. Marinate for thirty minutes or more. While the chicken is marinating, place skewers in water to soak.
 
Thread 4-6 pieces of chicken per skewer then cook on a grill pan over medium-high heat, turning frequently to avoid burning, for about 15 minutes or until juices run clear.
 
Serve 3 skewers per person with mango salsa alongside.
