This is a tropical tasting dish that is just as good vegetarian as it is with chicken! Honey and mango lend the sauce it's sweetness, but it's nicely countered with salty tamari and spicy hot sauce. Serve over rice or noodles.

Directions

  1. Place the sweet potatoes into a saucepan and fill with enough water to cover. Simmer over medium-high heat until tender, about 15 minutes. Drain and set aside.
  2. Meanwhile, heat 2 tablespoons of vegetable oil in a skillet over medium-high heat. Stir in chicken, and cook until no longer pink in the center, about 5 minutes; set aside. Stir garlic into the skillet, and cook for a few minutes, until fragrant. Pour in the tamari, 3/4 cup of water, honey, and hot sauce. Bring to a simmer, then stir in the sweet potato, chicken, mango, and red pepper flakes. Cook and stir until hot. Dissolve the cornstarch in 1 tablespoon of water, and stir into the simmering mixture; stir until thickened.

Very good combo of flavors! I like the spiciness, but I would recommend being careful with how much hot sauce you add, cuz it can get pretty hot pretty fast. I liked how tender the sweet potatoes got with boiling them, but roasting them would work too. Served it atop quinoa for a delicious meal.

Easy and full of flavor. I used non-stick spray instead of the oil. I served it over whole wheat pasta. This dish is super duper healthy yet it doesn't taste boring!

This has become a favourite in our house, 3 times in 4 weeks. I used 1/2 tsp Tabasco for the hot sauce and added a little more Honey. Turned out great. We have had this with pasta and brown rice, both work well.
