Ok, I know I’ve talked about my love for grilling about a million times already this summer. Seriously, it’s the best way of cooking in the summer HANDS DOWN! And you know my major love for all things chicken thighs. They are just the easiest and most delicious cut of chicken to grill in the summer. PLUS they are always on sale so why wouldn’t I stock up?

A few weeks ago I made Sweet Soy Marinated Grilled Chicken Thighs that have been a HUGE hit on the blog. Y’all love some chicken thighs just like me! However, this time I went a little spicy and sweet. I marinated these babies in a mixture of pureed mango, lime juice, cilantro, jalapeno and chili powder. They are packed full of flavor and so perfect for summer.

I actually doubled this recipe and made a massive amount of chicken thighs but that is only because I like easy lunches and what’s and easier lunch than dinnertime leftovers?

Want to know what else I love about these chili mango lime grilled chicken thighs? It pairs perfectly with Lipton iced tea. I have a feeling it would go awesome with all their flavors but I know it goes perfectly with Lipton Green Tea Citrus Iced Tea. I ended up inviting some local friends (my family all lives in Ohio and Florida) over and we feasted on chicken, rice, and Lipton iced tea. It was a straight up summertime dinner. I mean, who doesn’t love sitting around a big table scarfing down delicious chicken?

PLUS summer is straight up tea time. There is not a summer memory from my childhood that does not include slurping down iced tea.
