Marinated chicken is grilled on skewers with pieces of juicy mango. Serve with a mango chutney or plain. Great for summery appetizers. Enjoy!

Recipe Ingredients

  • ¼ cup olive oil
  • 2 teaspoons minced fresh ginger root
  • 1 teaspoon lemon juice
  • 1 teaspoon orange juice
  • 1 teaspoon brown sugar
  • 1 pinch white sugar
  • 4 skinless, boneless chicken breast halves - cut into bite-size pieces
  • salt to taste
  • 3 mangos - peeled, seeded, and diced

Cooking Directions

  1. 1 In a shallow container, mix the olive oil, ginger root, lemon juice, orange juice, brown sugar, and white sugar. Place the chicken breasts in the mixture, and marinate at least 30 minutes in the refrigerator.
  2. 2 Preheat the grill for high heat. Season chicken with salt, and alternately thread chicken and mango onto skewers. Discard marinade.

  1. Didn't have fresh ginger used powdered instead marinated about 3 hours. Great flavor and everyone liked it. Will make again.
  2. I made a few changes and it came out great... I used sesame oil instead of olive oil and added a lot more ginger root than what was suggested (probably double). I marainated it for a day which added more taste. I also added fresh pineapple to the kabob's.
  3. Yummy! The marinade is tasty and the mango with the chicken is matched perfectly! I made this dish with "cajun style baked sweet potato" recipe from this site and I thought the flavors went well together. delish:)
  4. My family loved this. I marinated it the whole day which I think helped keep the flavor strong. I also used more ginger than it called for. Overall I would make again!
  5. I marinated the chicken overnight to give it a stronger flavor and it turned out beautifully. To give the mangos an extra kick let them get crispy on the grill. The texture of the grilled mangos will then be close to that of a roasted marshmallow.
  6. The cooking time is definitely too long but with an adjustment this was a nice refreshing recipe. The chicken barely has any flavor from the marinade but is still good. I put this on some coconut basmati rice and really enjoyed it!
  7. I made this with little measuring and only 1 chicken breast and 1 mango. Be careful not to overcook the chicken. 12 minutes was enough.
  8. Thought these would have been better. They looked pretty but won't be making again.
  9. It was ok but the chicken was not as exciting as I had hoped.
