Step 1

Cut chicken breasts into thirds and season with salt and pepper. In a skillet, heat 1 tablespoon of oil over medium-high heat. Add the chicken and cook for about 3 to 4 minutes per side. Add the garlic, parsley, and lime juice and cook for 1 minute stirring.

While the chicken cooks, heat a medium skillet over medium-high heat and add enough oil to thinly coat the skillet. Place the plantain slices in pan and cook, 2 minutes per side. Remove from pan and place on paper towel-lined plate. Keep warm until chicken is done. Top the chicken with mango salsa and plantain slices and serve.
