A match made in heaven: fresh mango-black bean salsa with spicy, citrusy chicken. Marinate the chicken and bean mixture the night before you want to serve it. Then when it's time for dinner, just grill the chicken and your dinner's ready fast. Before grilling, make sure that you coat the grill heavily with cooking spray as instructed so that the chicken doesn't stick to the grates.

  1. In small bowl, combine orange juice, cilantro, lime juice, oil, garlic, cumin, salt, and black pepper for marinade. Scoop out 1⁄2 cup marinade and pour into large resealable plastic bag.
