Mango chicken.


Four words: Quick, easy, sweet and delicious. Just the way I like it. Great for a busy weekday meal. Give it a try.


You will need a tin of mango cheeks in syrup. Yummm….

Some chilli flakes to give some heat. Make it as hot as you like – or not so hot.

Two onions cut into wedges.

Two chicken breasts, thinly sliced.

Gently soften the onions in two tablespoons of vegetable oil. Remove from pan.

Cook the chicken slices until golden and cooked through. I find cooking in batches works the best.

Remove the mango cheeks from the syrup.

Chop mango cheeks into fine pieces.

Back in the pan, throw in the mango, chicken and softened onions. Pour in the syrup from the tin of mango.

 Stir in 1/2 cup of ABC sweet soy sauce.

A few drops of pure sesame oil adds loads of flavour.

Prepare a bed of cooked rice surrounded by a ring of baby spinach.

Take some little red chillies.

Remove seeds and chop finely. Be very sure to wash your hands thoroughly after handling the chillies.

Pile the chicken mixture on top of the rice.

Serve immediately.
