Cuban Spicy Chicken with Mango and Avocado     
by Cuban Chef

Pollo en salsa con Mango y Aguacate               Serves: 4  

Notes: A Cuban Gourmet dish to impress the guests.

Directions:

Chicken: Mix all Mojo Marinade ingredients together and mix with the chicken in a bowl or plastic ziplock bag. Let chicken sit in marinade for 2-4 hours.
 
You can either grill or bake the chicken. If you decide to bake, pre-heat your oven to 400 degrees F. Place the chicken on a well-oiled cookie sheet or baking pan and place in the oven. Turn the chicken after the first 6 minutes then bake for an additional 6 minutes. Pull chicken from the oven and let cool.
 
Vinaigrette: In a blender, puree all vinaigrette ingredients except the oil on the lowest setting. Slowly drizzle in the oil until it is completely incorporated. Salt and pepper to taste.
 
Dressing the plate: Combine greens, avocado and tomato in a salad bowl, mix well. Add just enough of the Mango Citrus Vinaigrette to coat the greens and then divide evenly between 4 plates. Place the chicken on the center of the green s and drizzle with a little of the Vinaigrette.
