Mango-Cilantro Relish:

2 ripe mangoes, peeled & diced
1/3 red onion, finely sliced
2 tablespoons cilantro, finely chopped
2 tablespoons fresh lime juice
2 tablespoons fresh orange juice
2 tablespoons olive oil
Kosher salt and freshly ground pepper


1 cup bottled Jerk Sauce
Splash red wine vinegar
1 tablespoons fresh lime juice
2 inch piece fresh ginger, coarsely chopped
2 scallions, coarsely chopped
3 hot peppers, coarsely chopped


6 pieces chicken thighs (with or without skin)
Jerk seasoning mix, dry mix

For relish: Combine mangoes, onion, cilantro, citrus juices, and olive oil in a medium bowl and season with salt and pepper.

Let sit 30 minutes at room temperature.

May be refrigerated up to 1 day, serve at room temperature.

Makes 4 cups.

To make marinade: In food processor, place all ingredients and process until smooth.

To marinate chicken: Pierce chicken all over with a fork.

Place in a large shallow dish or baking pan.

Cover with marinade and marinade 24-48 hours depending on how flavorful and hot you want chicken to be.

Refrigerate during marination.

To cook, preheat grill.

When hot, let excess marinade drip off chicken.

Place on Grill and cook 6 minutes on each side, or it more as necessary.

When chicken is done, remove from grill and let it sit for a moment or two then cut into it.

If juices run clear, chicken is done; if juices are red, return to grill for 1-2 minutes.
