Ingredients
  • 1 large boneless, skinless chicken breast
  • 1 pinch of salt
  • 1 pinch of pepper
  • ⅛ tsp. cayenne pepper
  • 1 pinch Caribbean jerk seasoning (like Spice Islands)
  • ¼ cup chopped mango
  • ¼ red onion, diced
  • 2 tbsp. fresh basil, julienned
  • ⅛ tsp. red pepper flakes
  • ½ tsp. light brown sugar
  • 1 tbsp. lemon juice
  • 4 small tortillas or taco shells (I used corn tortillas)
  • 1 tbsp. fat free feta cheese
Instructions
  1. Set oven to broil and allow to preheat. Meanwhile, season chicken with salt, pepper, cayenne, and Caribbean seasoning. Place on a grill rack on top of foil-lined cookie sheet. Broil in oven for about 7 minutes or until juices run clear and chicken is no longer pink inside.
  2. While chicken is cooking, combine mango, onion, basil, red pepper flakes, brown sugar, and lemon juice in a small bowl. Mix to combine.
  3. Warm tortillas in oven while chicken finishes cooking.
  4. When chicken is cooked, remove from oven and allow to rest before chopping into bite-size pieces.
  5. Top warmed tortillas with chopped chicken, mango salsa, and feta cheese.
  6. Roll up tacos, and enjoy!
