This is an old "Canadian Living" Recipe that has become a family favourite. We all love it, and sometimes I increase the amount of curry paste, depending on who is coming for supper! I normally make it with a pot of rice and a salad. It's a nice "different" dish when you have company. Everyone seems to love it!
- 1 lb boneless skinless chicken breast (4 breasts)
- 1 red pepper
- 1 yellow pepper
- 1 green pepper
- 3 green onions
- 2 mangoes
- 2⁄3 cup chicken stock
- 3 tablespoons sugar
- 2 tablespoons soya sauce
- 2 tablespoons rice vinegar or 2 tablespoons cider vinegar
- 4 teaspoons curry paste
- 4 teaspoons cornstarch
- 4 teaspoons vegetable oil
- 1 tablespoon minced gingerroot
- 1⁄4 cup cashews (optional)
- Cut chicken into three 4 inch pieces.
- Seed, core and cut peppers into 1-inch pieces.
- Slice onions into 1 1/2-inch lengths.
- Peel and pit mangoes and cut into 2/3-inch pieces.
- Whisk together stock, sugar, soy sauce, vinegar, cornstarch and curry paste.
- In wok or skillet heat half of the oil over high heat; stir fry chicken for 4 minutes or until no longer pink inside.
- Transfer to plate.
- Add remaining oil to wok; stir-fry peppers for 2 minutes.

- Add stock mixture and chicken, cook stirring for 2 minutes or until sauce is thickened and chicken is hot.
- Stir in onions and mango.
- Sprinkle with cashews (if using).
Very good! I bet this would be good with pineapple or papaya, also. Maybe a few sprinkles of toasted coconut as a garnish? Or maybe serve it with coconut rice. Next time I think I will add a minced clove of garlic along with the peppers and ginger. I bet water chestnuts would be great in it, too. Seems like it could be a very versatile recipe. Thanks for the recipe and the inspirations, Sassy!
This was wonderful! I cut back quite considerably on the curry paste because I knew that my brand was VERY hot. I used maybe a tsp. and a half and that was just about right. It was nice to leave the chicken in larger pieces rather than cutting it into inch cubes. The mangoes and the peppers were really lovely with the chicken and sauce. Great recipe!
Made this for company last night and it was a big hit. I made homemade curry paste which was more work, but delicious! I think it takes more time than Sassy Sandra says, but I'm slow at peeling and slicing mangoes!
