  • 1 Teaspoon Cumin
  • 1 Ripe Mango, peeled and sliced
  • Mexican Cheese Blend

Directions:

  1. Mix the cumin and chili powder in a dish.
  2. Place the chicken breast in the dish and turn to coat.
  3. Place the chicken breast in a baking dish and spray the top of the chicken with canola oil nonstick spray to help keep the spices a little more moist.

  5. Remove the chicken from the oven and let rest for 5-8 minutes.
  6. Slice thin and set aside.
