  • 8 - 10 chicken tenderloin organic
  • 1 tbsp extra virgin olive oil
  • juice from 1/2 lime
  • 1 1/2 tbsp mexican seasoning salt free
  • 1 1/2 tsp sea salt + more to taste
  • 2 tsp smoked paprika
  • 1 tsp onion powder
  • 1 tsp red pepper flakes + more to taste
  • 2 c this Mango Chimichurri
  • 8 leaves cilantro sprigs only
  • 2 limes quartered


  • On a large platter lay out the chicken tenderloin and drizzle all over with the olive oil and lemon juice. Give it a good mix. Sprinkle it all over with the spices: Mexican seasoning, paprika, onion powder, red pepper flakes and sea salt. Allow it to sit at room temperature for 25 minutes while your grill is heating up.
  • Once your grill is hot and ready, add the chicken tenderloin. Cook for about 2 minutes per side, you will notice the edges turning white when it’s time to flip.
  • Transfer the grilled chicken to a plate and give it a good squeeze of lime. Serve it with the mango chimichurri drizzled on top and garnished with the cilantro leaves and the lime wedges.


You can prepare the chicken in advance a day or two, just make sure to bring it to room temperature before grilling.
