Gluten-Free Cilantro Mango Chicken Recipe

gluten-free cilantro mango chicken recipe

This gluten-free cilantro mango chicken recipe comes from my cousin Carrie Marshall, a holistic health coach in Springfield, Missouri. 

4 skinless, boneless chicken breasts
8 ounces plain yogurt
1 cup cilantro, finely chopped
1/2 cup fresh lime juice
Dash of cayenne pepper
1 clove fresh garlic, minced
1 large ripe mango, peeled, finely diced

  • Preheat oven (375 degrees) or BBQ
  • Combine 1/4 cup yogurt, 1/4 cup of cilantro, half of the lime juice, cayenne pepper and garlic. Coat chicken breasts with this mixture, marinating for at least 1 hour.
  • While chicken marinates, make sauce by mixing remaining yogurt, 2/3 of diced mango, 1/2 teaspoon lime juice and 3/4 cup cilantro in blender.
  • Bake chicken in oven for 25-30 minutes or grill on BBQ.
  • Place chicken on serving plates, pour on sauce and sprinkle with remaining mango, serve with extra sauce on the side.
  • Add a sprig of fresh cilantro for garnish.

Serves 4

This recipe combining the tastes of cilantro and mango, with the common staple of chicken, sounds incredibly simple and delicious and is gluten-free.  It is very similar to a marinade made with lime juice, garlic, and cilantro that I frequently use at the cottage.  I put the chicken and marinade in a Ziploc bag at home and transport it to the cottage like that so it is well marinated by the next day.   The addition of mango, yogurt, and cayenne sounds interesting;  it will certainly be my next experiment in the kitchen or on the barbecue!

Delicious Wheat/Gluten-Free Quinoa Salad with Lime, Cilantro and Curry.

I made this delicious gluten-free quinoa salad for Easter dinner to have with my turkey when everyone else was having stuffing.  I found the recipe online at   It is easy to make ahead of time and makes a good lunch the next day too!  If you don’t like some of the ingredients, take them out or switch them up, but be sure to leave the quinoa, lime, curry powder and cilantro for the unique flavor…

Ingredients for six servings:

1.5 cups water

1 cup uncooked quinoa

1/4 cup chopped red pepper

1/4 cup chopped yellow pepper

1.5 tsp curry powder

1/4 cup chopped cilantro

1 lime, juiced (or equivalent amount of bottled juice)

1/4 cup toasted sliced almonds

1/2 cup minced carrots

1/2 cup dried cranberries

Cook the quinoa: bring the water to a boil in a saucepan, pour in quinoa.  If you don’t have fresh cilantro, you could add the paste type (found in most produce sections) to the water with the quinoa at his point.  Cover and simmer 15 to 20 minutes, until water is absorbed.   Refrigerate the quinoa in a bowl to chill it.  Stir the remaining ingredients into chilled quinoa and serve…
