I hope your Easter weekend was a blast! I had a great time with family and friends, myself.

One thing that was different – it was my birthday on Easter. I’ve never had my birthday actually fall on Easter before, so this was a new experience for me. I actually really loved being able to share the day with family, and especially my kids. Easter is just a really fun holiday and it was neat to share that experience on my birthday.

On a side note- getting older is not really as bad as I thought. I can remember when I was fresh into my 20’s, thinking how “old” my 30 year old friends were. Wondering how much different my life would be when I was that old.

To be honest, my brain still feels like I am young. My body… yeah, it’s definitely getting older, but nothing too drastic (I’ve had 4 kids, so there’s that). But when I talk to newly 20 year olds, I can’t help but feel…. older. ha!

I guess when it comes down to it, I’ve matured over the years, but I still feel young at heart. I’m sure I’m not alone in that feeling.

What I really love about this chicken is how versatile it is once you’ve grilled it. I make a huge batch of chicken then I’ll slice it up and store it in the fridge for chicken salads, sandwiches, tacos, or even burritos.

My favorite way to enjoy it, however, is on top of a bed of my Cilantro Lime Rice, surrounded by some of the best black beans.

When you top it with some fresh mango salsa, it’s a tropical burst of flavor. Perfect for this gorgeous Spring weather we’re having.

I don’t know about you, but grilling season is one of my absolute favorites!

    I looked at two stores to find the mango margarita mix but couldn’t find it- where have you purchased it?
    Thank you!

  2. This is the grilled chicken everyone should try. I love that you have used mango as an ingredient to this recipe and your mango salsa looks delish. It’s really a flavorful dish.

    I have been MIA for a bit due to my son’s wedding on May 1. It is a steampunk theme and I am making the decorations. Lots of fancy ladies & mens top hats; hot air balloons, airships & more. This chicken sounds perfect for the families meet and greet dinner here at my house.
