  1. Whisk together the egg, 2 tablespoons lemon juice, and 1 cup of mango nectar in a bowl, and set aside. Combine the flour, garlic powder, and pepper in a shallow dish, and set aside. Dip the chicken breasts into the egg mixture and allow the excess to drain off. Press into the flour mixture to coat and shake off the excess.
  2. Heat the olive oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Place the chicken breasts into the hot oil, and cook until golden brown on both sides, about 4 minutes per side. Meanwhile, whisk together 1 cup of mango nectar, water, soy sauce, balsamic vinegar, honey, 2 tablespoon lemon juice, sesame oil, and cornstarch. Once the chicken is brown on both sides, pour in the balsamic mixture. Bring to a simmer, and cook 10 minutes more.

Hey guys, this is my recipe. When you mix the last sauce, add the water but make sure it is HOT so the honey is mixable instead of sticky. And I just put fresh mango's in the juicer to get the nectar. Enjoy! IMPORTANT juice your mango once its nice and soft, it's sweet when it's soft, and has a more sour taste when it's still a bit firm

What surprised me the most about this recipe is that is for only two chicken breasts. There was enough in all areas for four if not six breasts. The next thing is that this is not a piccata at all. That uses fillets, flattened and dredged lightly with a pan sauce of lemon, butter and capers. This could be a piccata recipe if the mango flavor wasn't so overwhelming and used fillets. The lemon juice used here was completely lost. Heating olive oil has to be at a lower temperature as it burns easily. After about 2-1/2 minutes my chicken started to burn. In conclusion, this recipe should be called "sauted mango chicken breasts" for four to six servings.

I've made this now a few times and I prefer it with a few changes. I substitute about 1/4 cup of Thai Sweet Red Chili Sauce for the honey and lemon juice, and I puree a fresh mango in the food processor instead of using juice or nectar. After the chicken cooks, I set it aside and stir-fry some broccoli, then add the chicken back in with the sauce. At the very end, I toss in some fresh mango slices, just to warm them. I garnish with sliced red onion and chopped cilantro. Served with basmati rice, this is a delicious meal!

Just finished preparing this for my family and it was a hit. I did make a few adjustments. I doubled this recipe. Instead of garlic powder I used 6 cloves of garlic and added them skillet along with some sliced baby bellas while I was browning my chicken. Also in lieu of mango nectar I used a mango smoothie that i found in a bottle in the cold juice aisle, it had lemon juice in it so I omitted that from the recipe. I served it with Jasmine rice and sliced mango. My husband and 8 year old daughter both loved it. Will definately make again.

Rotisserie Version: I used 1/2 a rotisserie chicken (chopped up), so I just skipped the first part. I made the sauce, added the chicken, brought to a boil, and then let it simmer for 10 minutes. I served it over brown rice. I did use 1/2 cup balasmic dressing instead of straight vinegar and decreased the water to 1/2 cup. Also, I just chopped up 1 whole mango. I liked the chunks. It's different, but in a good way. :) Thanks for sharing the recipe!

This was very good. I used pork chops instead of chicken. I made a few of the chops plain (for the kids) and the other with the mango in the egg mixture and I honestly couldn't tell much difference in the breading between the two. But, the was great. A little too sweet maybe for my taste, I want to try it again with some red pepper flakes. All in all, this is a great recipe! Thanks for posting it!

I've made this twice now, and it's been incredible both times! It's easy, delicious and receives rave reviews! I made it with mashed potatoes and a salad...perfect...

I made this a few days ago, after my husband found a good deal on chicken breasts. It was absolutely delicious! There was nothing that I would change here. It was great with jasmine rice. My husband said "this chicken died for a good cause" :) Thank You greatfoodaddict!
