Place chicken in glass dish. Pour half of marinade over the top; toss gently to coat. Cover and refrigerate for 20 minutes to 4 hours.
Stir honey into remaining marinade. Set aside.

Grill or broil skewers for 6 to 8 minutes, turning every 2 minutes and brushing with honey marinade, or until mango is softened and chicken is no longer pink in the middle.
