Healthy Barbecue Chicken (Really!)
This barbecue sauce is an incredible blend of sweet and tangy ingredients (mango, onion, red pepper, jalapeno, cumin, cloves, cider vinegar, molasses and more), creating a mouth-watering topping that's excellent with grilled chicken. It's also fabulous on pork chops, tuna steaks, salmon fillets, shrimp and flank steak.
Heat the oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Add the onion and cook 2 minutes, until soft. Add the red pepper, garlic, jalapeno, cumin, cloves, 1/2 teaspoon salt, and 1/4 teaspoon black pepper and stir to coat. Cook for 1 minute, until the spices are fragrant. Add the mango, ketchup, vinegar, molasses, Worcestershire sauce, and lime juice and bring to a simmer. Simmer for 3 to 5 minutes. Transfer the mixture to a blender and process until smooth. Transfer 1/4 cup of barbecue sauce to a small bowl and set aside (this will be used on the chicken while grilling; the rest will be served at the table).
Coat a stove-top grill pan with cooking spray and preheat to medium-high. Season the chicken with salt and pepper. Place the chicken on the hot pan and grill 3 minutes per side, until almost cooked through. Brush the mango barbecue sauce over both sides of the chicken and cook for 1 to 2 more minutes per side, until the chicken is cooked through. Serve the chicken with the reserved mango barbecue sauce on the side (so you can add more as desired).
