  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 call this Gingered Orange Mango Chicken because it sounds more exciting that way when I introduce it to a tableful of people. Either way, however, it's the same great taste. Served it in the Bahamas when we had an overabundance of fresh mangoes and didn't know how to eat them all. Excellent, excellent recipe. I highly recommend!


This was a really quick and easy recipe that I made it for the first time for guests. You can use as much or as little of the delicious mango dressing as you like. I added 1/3c orange juice to the chicken just before it was cooked thru to cut a little citric acid into the meat. *Hint: have the lemon juice ready before you take the chicken out of the skillet. You do NOT want to burn the bits in the pan.

I loved this recipe, but my husband lived in Brazil for two years and thought the dish was an insult to mangos. I might try adding the mangos later in the recipe. Thanks!
