Thai Mango Chicken


This recipe is a nice company dish. When I made this for our company it got a thumbs up all around. I would certainly make this again, and again...and I have. It is ready in a short time since the meat isn't cooked long and the veggies are stir fried.  Serve over rice and you have a complete meal with lots of vegetables.  This amount makes 8 servings. I also served  Cabbage Salad (with out the added chicken) as a side dish.

  • 6 fresh chicken breast halves, cut into strips
  • 1 tablespoons oil
  • 2 fresh peppers, cut into thin strips (I used red and yellow)
  • 2 cups of broccoli 
  • 1 can of lite coconut milk (in Canada it is a 400 ml size)
  • fill can with water and add 1 tablespoon of low sodium chicken bouillon.
  • 2 tablespoons cornstarch
  • 1/2 cup of hoisin sauce
  • 1 tablespoon peanut butter (optional)
  • 1  tablespoons of  curry paste (add more if you like it spicier and more curry flavor, I added a generous 2 tablespoons)
  • 2 fresh mango cubed
  1. Stir fry the peppers and broccoli in the oil for a few minutes and set aside.
  2. After removing the peppers, stir fry the chicken in a bit more oil until the chicken strips are browned.
  3. In the mean time mix the coconut milk, water, hoisin sauce and seasoning, stir well.
  4. dissolve cornstarch in the coconut milk mixture.
  5. Return the vegetables to the chicken, add the sauce and cook until it comes to a boil and the sauce thickens.
  6. Add mango to heat through.
  7. Sounds like a really good birthday dinner to me.
