Diabetic Mango Chicken

This diabetic mango chicken is good. The fourth of July is quickly approaching and so I was in search of a good barbecue recipe. We swim and eat, swim and eat, all day long!

Mangos are a family favorite right now. They are in season, as sweet as candy, and are amazing to cook with. The mango in this recipe is part of the sauce that the chicken grills with. The recipe calls for Mango Chutney. I make a batch every summer. Here is a good diabetic mango chutney recipe.
