Spicy Mango Topper:
2 ripe mangos, peeled, pitted and cut into 1/4-inch dice
1/4 cup lime juice
2 tablespoons brown sugar
1/2 teaspoon crushed red pepper
1/4 teaspoon garlic powder
1/4 teaspoon cinnamon
1/4 teaspoon ground allspice
Jerk Chicken:
4 boneless, skinless chicken breasts, flattened slightly (about 1 1/2 pounds)
2 tablespoons Jamaican jerk seasoning blend
1 lime, halved


  1. Stir together mango, lime juice, brown sugar, red pepper, garlic powder, cinnamon and allspice in a medium bowl; set aside.
  2. Rinse chicken and pat dry. Sprinkle on both sides with jerk seasoning and let stand for 10 minutes. Cook on a well oiled grill over medium heat for about 5 to 7 minutes on each side, or until chicken is cooked through. Remove from grill and squeeze lime halves over chicken.
  3. Serve with mango topper.
