"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."

  1. Heat 1 tablespoon vegetable oil in a large saucepan over medium heat. Add onion; cook and stir until the onion softens and turns translucent, about 5 minutes. Add mangos, lemon juice, sugar, ginger, cinnamon, and mace. Bring to a simmer and cook for 5 minutes, stirring constantly. Turn heat to low, cover, and allow to cook 5 minutes more.
  2. While the mango sauce is simmering, season chicken breasts with salt and pepper to taste. Heat remaining 1 tablespoon vegetable oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Add chicken, and cook on both sides until nicely browned, and the chicken is no longer pink in the center, about 8 minutes per side.
  3. To serve, place one or two pieces of chicken onto each serving plate. Spoon mango sauce over the top, and sprinkle with pecans.

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 b...

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 c...
