Chill for an hour before serving.
Mix oregano, paprika and salt.
Cut the chicken breast in smaller pieces if needed, especially if they're too thick.
Squeeze lemon over chicken breast, then slowly coat each piece in the seasoning mix. Dust it off if you added too much on a certain area just to make it more or less even.
Heat up the skillet and oil, lower heat to medium high. Add chicken in.
Cook chicken thoroughly on each side for about 4-5 minutes.
Serve separately and top with salsa as needed on each individual plate or top all pieces with mango salsa and put on the table family style.
Calories are estimated using a standard size chicken breast and about 2 tbsps of mango salsa per serving.
Feel free to replace lemon with lime and add jalapeno or any other spice to the mango salsa. As is the recipe is kid friendly because I have 2 young children but I definitely love the salsa with some more kick to it too.
