1 Cut each chicken breast fillet through the middle horizontally to create 4 thin fillets. In a medium bowl, combine diced mango, chopped chilli, onion, coriander and lime juice and set aside.
2 Preheat barbecue hotplate or grill pan to medium-high heat. Spray chicken lightly with olive oil and grill for 2–3 minutes each side, or until cooked through.
3 Meanwhile, in a large salad bowl, combine black beans, the avocado, cos lettuce and tomatoes. Combine extra lime juice with 2 teaspoons olive oil, pour over salad and toss well to combine.
4 Serve the chicken with mango salsa and black bean salad.
How to get the heat right: Grilling at high heat seals in flavours and juices, reducing the need for butter, oil or sauces. Start with your grill on high, and after your meat has been cooking approximately 1–2 minutes, turn the heat down to ensure it doesn’t burn.
