Recipe Ingredients

  • 1 tablespoon vegetable oil

Cook until the sauce has thickened. Drop mango in and cook until the mango is heated through.

  1. Made this last night for the 1st time. Doubled all but the peppers so we could have left overs. Deboned chicken leg quarters and used them as it was all I had on hand. boiled the bones with a touch of onion and garlic to use for the stock. Used more curry than called for - Read more ...
  2. This is a great dish! You can definitely play around with the ratio of veggies/mango to chicken to your liking. (Since mangos are in season right now I doubled the mango and used half the peppers.) I also doubled the sauce because my husband likes to put the extra sauce over his rice- but it - Read more ...
