  1. Heat the olive oil in a medium skillet over medium heat. Place chicken breast halves in the skillet, and cook 5 to 10 minutes on each side, until no longer pink and juices run clear. Season both sides with thyme, salt, and pepper. Remove from heat, and set aside.
  2. Heat the lemon juice in the skillet over medium heat, and scrape up browned bits. Mix in orange juice, mango, ginger, and cinnamon. Over high heat, cook and continuously stir 4 to 5 minutes, until thickened. Spoon over the cooked chicken breast halves to serve.

I actually was not amazed by this dish, but my husband said it was the best thing I had ever cooked(but mangos are his very favorite fruit).

The sauce was way too tangy to go with chicken. I had to add sugar and pineapple to try to reduce the acidity. The chicken itself was ok, though.

Very easy to make and husband loved the mango flavor most. He even wished he could taste that more. I think because of that I'll add a little extra next time.
