  4. While chicken marinates, purée remaining yogurt, 2/3 of cubed mango, 1/2 teaspoon lime juice, and 1 cup cilantro in blender.

  5. Bake chicken in a glass baking dish for 25-30 minutes.

  6. Place chicken on serving plates, pour on sauce and sprinkle with mango and extra sauce on the side.

  7. Garnish with more cilantro and lime and season to taste.
