Grilled Chicken with Mango Salsa
Serves 4

Prepare an outdoor grill and heat to hot, or preheat a large grill pan or the broiler. Spray the grill with nonstick spray or coat the grill pan with 1 tablespoon of grapeseed or canola oil.

Grill or broil chicken, turning once, until the skin is brown and crispy and the juices run clear when the meat is pierced with a fork, 8 to 12 minutes.

Remove chicken from grill.

Toss mesclun with the juice of the remaining lime and place on serving platter.

Slice chicken breasts on the diagonal and arrange over the greens, topping with mango salsa.
