Jerk Marinated Chicken with Fresh Mango Salsa

You absolutely have to make this dish.  The flavors are so amazing and fresh!  There's a hint of spice too, but the sweetness of the mango and red bell pepper take care of that.  Great dish, amazing flavors!  Enjoy!
Ingredients:
For Jerk Marinade:
-1 lime, juiced
-3 green onions, roughly chopped
-3 garlic cloves
-1 habanero or serano pepper, seeded and roughly chopped
-2 Tbs soy sauce
-1/4 cup extra virgin olive oil
-1 Tbs packed brown sugar
-1/2 tsp cinnamon
-1/2 tsp salt
-1/2 tsp pepper
Other:
-4 chicken thighs, skin-on, bone-in
-1 Tbs extra virgin olive oil
-cooked rice
For Fresh Mango Salsa:
-2 mangos, peeled, pitted and diced
-1 red bell pepper, chopped
-1/2 red onion, finely chopped
-1 jalapeno, seeded and finely diced
-1 lime, juiced
Directions:
Place all marinade ingredients into your blender.  Process until smooth.  Pour into gallon ziploc bag.  Add the chicken thighs and mix until evenly coated. Marinade for at least 5 hours, preferably over night, turning the bag over once in a while.
When ready to serve, preheat the oven to 350 F.
Heat remaining 1 Tbs oil in large skillet.  Add the marinated chicken and sear for a few minutes on each side until nice and golden brown.  Note that the chicken will not be cooked through at this point.
While the chicken is searing, mix the salsa ingredients and set aside.
Once chicken is nicely browned, remove skillet from stove.  Top with that beautiful mango salsa.  Place in preheated oven and bake for 20-25 minutes or until chicken is cooked through.
Serve on top of rice.  Enjoy!
