Sweet and Spicy BBQ Chicken with Corn Salad

This BBQ sauce packs a powerful punch of vitamins and antioxidants from the mango, 

raisins and sundried 

tomatoes. Try it with grilled pork chops too.


2 cups plus 2 tablespoons lowfat plain yogurt

2 cups frozen mango chunks

3 tablespoons honey

1/4 cup plus 1 tablespoon apple cider vinegar

1/4 cup golden raisins

2 tablespoons olive oil, plus more for brushing

1/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper

5 sun-dried tomatoes (not packed in oil)

2 small cloves garlic, finely chopped

4 ears corn, shucked

8 boneless, skinless chicken thighs, trimmed (about 1 1/2 pounds)

Kosher salt

6 cups mixed salad greens

2 medium carrots, thinly sliced


To make the smoothies, combine 2 cups of the yogurt, 2 cups ice, 1 cup of the mango and 

all of the honey in a blender, and blend until very smooth. Divide among four glasses and 

refrigerate until ready to serve. Rinse out the blender.

Preheat the grill to medium-high heat. Combine the remaining 1 cup mango, 1/4 cup water, 

1/4 cup of the vinegar, the raisins, olive oil, cayenne, tomatoes and garlic in a microwave-

safe bowl. Cover with a piece of plastic wrap and microwave until the tomatoes are soft, 

about 3 minutes. Let cool slightly and puree in a blender. Transfer to a small bowl. Set aside

Place the corn on the grill, cover and cook, turning as needed, until nicely charred, about 10

 minutes. Remove and keep warm.

Turn the grill down to medium and brush the grates with some of the oil. Toss the chicken

 thighs with half of the remaining sauce and 1/2 teaspoon salt. Arrange on the grill and cook 

until nicely marked and the internal temperature registers 170 degrees F on an instant-read 

thermometer, 8 to10 minutes per side. Baste a few times with the remaining sauce while 


While the chicken cooks, whisk together the remaining 2 tablespoons yogurt, the reserved 2

tablespoons sauce, the remaining 1 tablespoon vinegar, 1 tablespoon water and 1/4 

teaspoon salt in a large bowl. Toss the mixed greens and carrots together. Divide the 

chicken, corn and salad among four dinner plates. Drizzle the greens with the reserved 

dressing. Serve each plate with a mango smoothie.
