Mango Chile Chicken with Mint

What the dead of winter really needs is a festive pick-me-up. Something that has zing and pizazz and vibrancy!

This chicken fits the bill for sure. Easy, breezy, slightly tropical, decidedly delicious, it comes together quick and fills you up.

Try it, and enjoy!

(I know, lame post, sorry. Life is getting the better of me this week. I really could use a nap. Or three. And a cocktail. Or four. Bascially, I need a drink and a good rest. Wait, did I already say that? Yea, I did. See? Okay...I'm off...)

4 chicken breasts
1 teaspoon vegetable oil
2 large mango, diced
1 each red and green bell pepper, large dice
2 medium red onions, large dice
1 Datil (or any small, hot) pepper, minced
1/4 cup fresh orange juice
1 tablespoon fresh lime juice
salt and pepper to taste

In a large bowl, combine the mango, peppers, onion, Datil pepper, orange and lime juice. Season with salt and pepper.

Heat the oil in a large skillet over a medium high flame. Saute the chicken breasts for 5 minutes on each side. Add the mango mixture and cover. Let simmer for 2 minutes.

Remove from the heat and serve.


In the UK, mangoes outsell fresh pineapples on a weekly basis. They buy and average of £22 million worth of mangoes per year

I would say that if you followed this with 4 cocktails and a nap it would be absolutely perfect. Thanks for sharing even in your need a nap state!
Beautiful photograph, Rachael! And the dish sounds lovely too. Mangoes are fabulous, aren't they? I use them to make an even simpler salsa that I serve with chicken breasts, pork chops or even seared salmon fillets. Just combine some diced mango, sliced strawberries and some chopped chives or the green parts of green onions in a bowl, then serve on top of or alongside the meat or fish. The addition of chives or green onions adds a sharpness that cuts the sweetness of the fruit. You can also add a little cayenne pepper if you want a little kick to the salsa.
I must say i've never tried using ripe mango with anything savoury.A mind block i guess.But what u've done here is looks delicious and makes me want to try it.
