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.

Directions

  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.
  4. All done! Now take a photo, rate it, and share your accomplishments!

A little info on mangoes: For North Americans, probably the closest similar fruit (but NOT close in flavor) is the peach. A ripe mango should have about the same consistency as a ripe peach. And a green mango feels about the same as a green peach. You can ripen green mangoes in a closed brown paper bag in 2-4 days. If you try to cook this dish with green mangoes, you will not get any juice (or flavor), just as if you tried cooking a pie, or some other dish, with green peaches. Use only ripe mangoes to cook this dish. It's true the mace and pecans are not necessary for the main flavor of the dish. They are added for the pleasure of those whose palates enjoy more complex flavors and textures. It is perfectly fine to leave these out if you so wish.

This was really tasty. I felt the pecans werent truly necessary, nor the mace seasoning, but it was delicious. I really enjoyed it!
