"The recipes I found for mango chicken seemed to overwhelm the mangoes with citrus juices. Here's my version, which I believe keeps the flavor of fresh mango in focus. Garnish with a sprig of fresh parsley and serve with plain white rice." — morble

onion, halved and sliced

A little info on mangoes: For North Americans, probably the closest similar fruit (but NOT close in flavor) is the peach. A ripe mango should have about the same consistency as a ripe peach. And a green mango feels about the same as a green peach. You can ripen green mangoes in a closed brown paper bag in 2-4 days. If you try to cook this dish with green mangoes, you will not get any juice (or flavor), just as if you tried cooking a pie, or some other dish, with green peaches. Use only ripe mangoes to cook this dish.
It's true the mace and pecans are not necessary for the main flavor of the dish. They are added for the pleasure of those whose palates enjoy more complex flavors and textures. It is perfectly fine to leave these out if you so wish.
not too bad. i forgot to put the pecans on, so i don't know if that would have hurt or helped our rating. but it was good and different!
This was really tasty. I felt the pecans werent truly necessary, nor the mace seasoning, but it was delicious. I really enjoyed it!
Was good, even with frozen mango instead of fresh. The sauce is on the sweet side but complemented the chicken well that was seasoned with course black pepper. I served it with saffron-caraway basmati rice Yum!
This dish was easy and fantastic!!! Loved it!
It could very well be my stupidity, but where was the "sauce" supposed to come from? Was the mango supposed to be super juicy? I followed the directions & there wasn't ANY sauce, it was just cubed mango with onion.
