Preheat the oven to 350 Fahrenheit (175 Celsius) , then place the baking tray on the center rack for 35-45 minutes depending on your oven and how many sandwiches your preparing .

Note: I you are unsure weather your chicken breasts are fully cooked take one of the larger ones and cut into the center of it if it is at all pink or fleshy looking  place back in the oven and check back in 3-5 minutes .

While your chicken is cooking you can prepare the mango salsa , Start by peeling mangos and chopping them to a medium size , pit and chop the peaches to the same size , chop the tomatoes slightly larger . Peel and chop the red onion very fine , if you are using jalapenos remove the tops and seeds and to the same consistency as the onion. Combine all the ingredients in a large bowl and mix thoroughly.
