I found this recipe useful although I made several changes to it that the rest of you may like to try. Someone gave me a bottle of ready-made spicy mango sauce. And following the steps to brown the chicken etc, I did just that. Later, scoop the chicken up and do the sauce. I added the orange juice 3/4 cups only instead of 3 cups. Then added the spicy mango sauce. Add more salt to it so that the OJ won't be too overpowering or too sour/sweet. Next, put the chicken back in and stir in sliced carrots and red capsicum. It looks good and enhances the taste. Oh and before that, make sure the chicken is marinated with Worchestershire sauce, salt, pepper and dark soy sauce. Try again! :)

Unfortunately the taste of this dish is flat. The OJ overruns the mango, so much so that the mango ends up tasting like OJ. Maybe a mix of OJ and pineapple? Don't know, but at the price of boneless chicken breasts, I don't think I'll experiment. There are too many other excellent chicken mango dishes to rely on.

This recipe is digusting. Do not waste your chicken on this one! For some reason I think it does not taste good because of the orange juice.

I agree that using the 3 cups of orange juice creates a liquidy sauce and overpowers the mango. I boiled the sauce with corn starch for 3-4 minutes until it thickened. It is refreshing and fruity, though.

Didn't really like this dish. You couldn't taste any mango flavor. It tasted more like OJ chicken.

i used this recipe as an outline and then added only 1/2 a cup of orange juice pineapple juice and small pineapple chunks and finely chopped garlic, a weird combination but actually tasted very good...

With the exception of cutting up the mango, this was a really easy meal. I halved the recipe, but left the amount of mango intact - that seemed to solve the lack of mango flavor that others mentioned. I didn't want to overcook the chicken in the process of browning it, so erred on the side of not quite browned in favor of allowing the chicken to poach in the delightful orange-mango sauce. I found it delightfully fruity and light-tasting. No rice needed - just added some steamed veggies for an excellent summer meal!
