Wegmans Grilled Jamaican Jerk Chicken Breast and Mango & Cashew Salad

Our chefs developed the marinade for this Wegmans family favorite, and Wegmans Executive Chef Mark Makovec grills it up and serves it with a fruity, nutty salsa. Great tasting with flavor that pops.
Ingredients
  Jamaican-style jerk chicken breast cutlets 32 Ounce (Wegmans - 8 ounce each)
  Jamaican jerk finishing sauce 8 Ounce (Wegmans - 1 jar)
For the mango and cashew salad
  Cashew nuts 3⁄4 Cup (12 tbs) (unsalted)
  Extra virgin olive oil 1 Tablespoon
  Cayenne pepper 1⁄8 Teaspoon
  Salt 1⁄2 Teaspoon
  Honey 1 Tablespoon
  Lime juice 2 Tablespoon
  Extra virgin olive oil 4 Tablespoon
  Arugula 7 Ounce
  Mango 1 Large, peeled, cut into 1-inch dice
Directions

GETTING READY
1. Heat 1 Tbsp oil in skillet on medium. Add cashews, cayenne pepper and salt; stir in honey. Remove from heat; toss, set aside to cool.
2. Whisk lime juice and 1/4 cup olive oil in small bowl. Set aside to dress the salad before serving.
3. Preheat grill on MEDIUM-HIGH 10 min.
