Food Safety

Before you start, wash all surfaces and your hands with soap and warm water, and remember to wash your hands, utensils and cutting boards after they touch raw meat or eggs. Avoid cross-contamination by using a different cutting board for your meat and other ingredients. Make sure you’re cooking to safe temperatures and chilling any leftovers within two hours.

  2. Place mango and cucumber in a bowl. Add mint, 1 Tbsp (15 mL) olive oil and pinches of salt and pepper. Set aside for later.

  3. Grill chicken, turning occasionally, until lightly charred and cooked through making sure that the chicken juices run clear when pierced with a knife or meat thermometer registers 165°F (74°C), 10 to 12 minutes. Serve with mango salsa.

Helpful Tip
