Mangos and Chicken.....roulade?

Got some chicken thighs and some mangos.....going to make a roulade, but seems like it needs a little "more" maybe a cheese? ...something.

Going to accompany it with a green salad with strawberries and some glazed pecans....

this is for dinner tonight for just my girlfriend and i...so ok to "experiment" a little.

I would opt for chicken scallopini using breast meat and possibly some prosicutto. How are you going to roll the thighs? You could make a mango salsa, which has been done 10 million times. lol

Oh, I can roll me some thighs.......

I like the thighs because they are more moist. I'm thinking just maybe some mangoes but with a chili sauce on top

I see mango salsa in that roulade (sorry J) - no cheese necessary. If you are using darker greens for your salad you can also include those in the roulade.

Just be sure to brush on some olive oil and salt and pepper the inside of the chicken before you "stuff it", as well as the outside. That's the problem with most roulades, people forget to season.

You can have moist breast meat. If you insist on the thigh meat, I would choose something to cut the greasiness. Maybe add some lime juice or cayenne pepper.

lime juice, cayenne.........oh we have the beginnings of salsa

Thigh meat isn't greasy - it's moist. Duck meat is greasy, yes.

Blasphemy! haha. yeah, i'll definitely put some lime juice or cayenne.

Yeah, you can have moist breasts, but I'm a leg man....it will catch up to me in my waist for sure, but I'm willing to take the risk.

Sorry for the aboriginally, but I was thinking mago salsa as well. I generally do not like fruits with my meats, but mango and chicken just go so well together that i can't resist. A little mango, red onion, lime juice, cilantro, jalopeno or other pepper, and maybe a bit of garlic, salt and pepper.
