    Mango Chicken with Red Peppers

    posted in Main Dishes |

    One of the great things about subscribing to a CSA program is that it forces you to “use up” the fruits and veggies that you’ve been allocated, making it a lot easier to decide what to make for dinner. As Lisa will tell you, I can easily spend an entire afternoon poring over cookbooks, trying to decide on recipes. Having ingredients on-hand is a great way to narrow that scope. This easy, quick recipe from Hooked on Heat was a great way to utilize the mangoes that arrived this week. Chicken is stir-fried with onions, red bell peppers, and spices; mangoes are stirred in at the end to create a nice balance of sweet and spice.

    You know, I think this is the first time I’ve actually cooked something with mango in it.

    Lisa says:

    Oh yeah, I usually just have it by itself.

    Chris says:

    Pickapeppa Hot is really good in spicing this up… it has that tropical fruit taste that goes really well with the — hey, what are you doing?.

    Lisa says:

    Getting more — this is good!

    Chris says:

    Save me some for lunch tomorrow…

    We’ll see if there are leftovers, sucka!

    Mango Chicken with Red Peppers
    2 large boneless chicken breasts, cut into bite-sized pieces
    2 large mangoes, diced into cubes
    1 red bell pepper, sliced

      Well, I must say that this recipe is a winner, in my opinion. And that is important because I am chiffOnade (Peter Kump’s Culinary School graduate and SeriousEats senior adviser).

      As soon as I spotted your recipe, I humped on down to the local Clearwater Costco (where I am somewhat of a “celebrity” customer), and picked up the necessary ingredients.

      Since I moved in to my Boy Friend “Big Bear’s” trailer house, I don’t have much pantry space like I had when I was married to my former husband, “Chuck” who is a famous dentist in New York City.

      Anyway, I whipped up this dish in the big pot that “Bear” gave me last Christmas, and it was delicious.

      Of course, I had to convice the BF that this was NOT an asian dish (he will NOT eat anything asian because he thinks it is poisoned). I assured him that it was italian, just like my mother, Aida (unfortunately she has passed, you know).

      Thanks a million for the grreat recipe.

      This was excellent! I cut the recipe in half for two empty nesters, and it was so good that there are no leftovers. I am sending it to all my family members who like to cook. Just be aware that this is NOT a 30 minute from start-to-finish recipe, so be sure that you have time, or else do the chopping/slicing ahead of time. By the way, I didn’t have ginger-garlic paste, so I soaked some of my dried ginger slices in a little chicken stock, and then put them in the blender with 2 cloves of fresh garlic. It worked and tasted great.
