Mango Chicken

2 Flares 2 Flares ×

I hope everybody in the U.S. had a very happy Thanksgiving!  I may have ‘gobbled’ a few times yesterday as I sat at my desk thinking of cranberry sauce, green bean casserole, buttery rolls and a tenderly cooked roast turkey with all the trimings.


Alas!  Thanksgiving isn’t recognized in the Cayman Islands so my holiday-food day dreams are set to haunt me until I get my Christmas fix.  Don’t mourn me though, my dear American friends.  I did have a lovely dinner last night! Remember that mango sauce from last week?

Mango Chicken by Market at the Grounds
Print this recipe

You will need:
3 chicken breasts
1 bell pepper (your favorite color!)
1/4 cup oil
1 cup all-purpose flour mixed with 1/2 tsp salt
1/2 cup fresh coriander
3 – 4 tbsp coconut milk
Mango Sauce

  • In mixing bowl, add chicken pieces to flour-salt mixture and coat
  • Heat a frying pan over medium-high heat.  Add oil and begin frying chicken
  • Fry 3 – 5 minutes per side, or until light golden brown and cooked through
  • Remove chicken from pan and set on paper towel or clean surface
  • Wash out the frying pan and set over medium-high heat.  Add mango sauce and bell pepper.  Bring to a gentle boil, reduce and simmer
  • If sauce becomes too thick, add the coconut milk.  Simmer for about 4 minutes or until pepper has softened slightly but still retains some crispness
  • Add the fried chicken pieces, gently stirring them in to cover with sauce.
  • Transfer to serving dish and serve with rice and fresh coriander

  14. This sounds sweet and delicious. Love the look of the chicken in your photos!

  19. This looks delicious! I can imagine the smell of the mango sauce! I think that I can finish the whole plate of the Mango Chicken! Yum!

  20. You are so funny! Nothing beats turkey with all the trimmings….but I never mourn you! I'd give up turkey for a tropical cocktail in the warm sun any day! This chicken with mango looks delicious and the colors are very reminiscent of Thanksgiving! I hope you had a great day, however you celebrated! : )

  21. Mango and chicken JUM!! I bet you didn’t miss the turkey at all =)

    Christmas is in 3 weeks and before you know it it's there. I wonder what your Christmas meal will be…

  22. I never had those two together..but of course I love both!Nice job sweetie!!

  23. That looks amazing! I would have rather had the mango chicken than the traditional turkey and stuffing meal. Yum!

  24. Honestly my mouth is watering! looks so good and delicious – I'm going for this one:)

  25. With all the over-indulging of Thursday (not me, of course) this chicken dish looks refreshing. I love the mango sauce!

  26. Oh, my! Yummylicious mango chicken tenders! Not mourning you…applauding you:DDD

  27. This looks lovely with your mango sauce! Perfect with chicken. We had turkey, but just a small dinner to go with it.

  28. That looks beyond scrumptious – and like something I crave after all the non-fruity Thanksgiving foods!

  29. Wow this sounds delicious! I love mangoes and must have missed your post with the mango sauce. I think I'm going to make some version of this tomorrow evening only w/o frying the chicken.

    I'll be heading to St John's for the holidays and can't wait to hit the warm tropical climate and foods like this. Thanks for sharing.

  30. I love mango sauce. Your chicken looks so fabulous 🙂

  31. Yumola and I would love to sample this while chillaxin in the Caymans.

  32. Mango sauce – yum!

  33. Looks so nice and sweet, I had something similar in Hawaii, love it with the guava… this looks amazing!

  34. this looks so appetizing!

  35. Oh my I love me some fry!! This sounds exeptionally tasty if I do say so, Is the mango sauce spicy. I ask because of the other scardey cats I have to cook for 😉
    Take care…

  36. Oh, wow! That looks amazing! I love chicken with spicy-sweet sauces like your mango sauce! Thanks for sharing and while you didn't get to have Thanksgiving….time in the Caymans sounds lovely right now!

  37. These look quite yummy! Anything mango is good with me!

  38. this looks finger licking good he eh

  39. Like you, no Thanksgiving. This Mango Chicken looks so tasty, though. On the same lines – we had a Chicken Massaman Thai Curry – isn't that funny? Sort of on the same lines with the exotic touch but totally, wildly different from the Cranberry/sprouts/turkey dish that we crave for Christmas. We're on the same lines but you, lucky Parsley Sage, have an amazing sun en plus! Now time to plan for a groovy Christmas.

  40. Oh, I see you linked a recipe…thanks!!!

  41. Mmmmmm….what a gorgeous, tasty and quick dish! If I ever see any mango sauce around here, I will snatch it up~

  42. I love mangos but never made with chicken, look amazing!:)

  43. Yum! This totally got me thinking awesome crazy things about mango and turkey – chicken looks delicious too, though, and more workable for a weeknight. Since you've got tons of sun in the Caymans, might as well go tropical to the max and leave the heavy winter food to those of us freezing Pilgrim-style in New England. I totally had a “that would be awesome” moment thinking about lawyering down there…but then I remembered I'd have to leave behind my office crush. Who is a dead ringer for David Tennant…

  44. “Market at the Grounds” – nice name, a simple straight forward description of what it is. Just like your mango chicken which I would love to eat at the food stalls at the market at the grounds:)

  45. Finger licking preparation ……..I love the mango sauce and coconut milk blend its just awesome!

  46. That mango sauce? Yum! I would lick my plate 😉

  47. I would love to give this recipe a try as its new to me though I have cooked fish with mango cubes and sauce to go with it.

  48. Great use of your lovely mango sauce!

  49. Love seeing the sunlight peek in on your pictures, it looks like you are lounging out on a boat!

    And it made me smile last night when I saw that you had earned TOP 9, congratulations!

  50. We always go to Thai Orchid for sushi on Thanksgiving, if we don't get invited somewhere for Turkey.
    I would probably love that Mango Chicken though…

  51. What great pictures; a must try. In Canada we celebrated our Thanksgiving mid October.No turkey at our place yesterday.
