Let stand 5 min; fluff with a fork. Zest and juice the lime. Stir zest and 1/3 cup chopped cilantro into rice.Advertisement
Meanwhile, sprinkle chicken with the jerk seasoning and 1 tsp salt. Heat veg oil in a stainless skillet over med-high. Add chicken and cook, covered, turning halfway through, until browned and temp reaches 165 degrees, 12 to 15 min, depending on thickness.
Stir mangoes with lime juice, 1/4 cup diced red onion, remaining 1/4 cup chopped cilantro, the cayenne and 1/4 tsp salt. Top rice with chicken and mango salsa. Easy rice bowl option: Use ground chicken instead of breasts, and cook it with the jerk seasoning. Then stir chicken into cooked rice with the zest and cilantro.
