Thai Mango Chicken

Thai Mango Chicken on Rice

When I was younger I did not really like mangos. I tried them again this year and found that I now like them. When I came across this recipe for Thai mango chicken I bookmarked it to try later. This weekend they had some nice looking mangos at the grocery store and I grabbed them thinking of this recipe. This meal was pretty amazing! The mango sauce is a perfect balance of sweet, sour, spicy, and salty. This balance is really key and you should taste the sauce to make sure that it is properly balanced. You may have to make some adjustments to get it just right. I will definitely be making this again.

I LOVE mango, and I'm a big fan of thai flavours, this sounds delicious!

This sounds wonderful, Kevin! I would have put this over rice but after seeing your photo, I'm thinking that pasta would be great, too! Is that whole wheat spaghetti? ht

Kevin said...

Yep, that is whole wheat spaghetti.

Pam said...

Kevin, all of your recipes sound amazing (even those with eggplant), but this one has absolutely everything I love! I can't wait to try it.

Peter M said...

The mango chicken w/ rice looks scrumptuous. One question for you Kevin, did you use a green mango or a ripe mango?

Kevin said...

The mangos were ripe ones.

Meghan said...

I have a love/hate relationship with mango... but I think this dish captures how I might enjoy it best, amongst savory things.

Nice photos as well!

Valli said...

This dish does look delicious Kevin! The mango would add a fruitiness and freshness to the spiciness of the dish. Excellent!

Deborah said...

Hi, I've been a closet fan for about a year now! Thank you for sharing your skill. Imade the Thai Mango Chicken you posted over the weekend and not only was it easy, but delicious as well. I omitted the cashews, but other than that I found the right balance of flavors to make this recipe a keeper. I think I may try it with shrimp next time. Thanks again!

I made this tonight. Another home run Kevin.I added a cubed mango to the dish at the same time as the peppers for a little extra punch. I love mango.
I will definitely make this again.
