BBQ Chicken with Mango-White Wine Marinade

    5 hours 30 minutes

    This is a sweet marinade great for chicken. We cook the chicken then serve it on top of a garden salad or in a wrap.

    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!  -  10 Aug 2009  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)


    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 .  -  25 Jul 2007  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)


    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!  -  05 Jun 2010  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
