Mango-Red Pepper Chicken

READY IN: 20mins
Recipe by lisacheryl

I love mango and I wanted to come up with a delicious way to serve it with chicken. It is sweet and spicy at the same time, light but filling, and low fat. I serve it with sticky white rice. I hope you enjoy!

I made this dinner for my family, I loved the balance of sweet and spicy and so did they!

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Take 2 teaspoons of chili powder and 2 teaspoons of basil, mix, and dip raw chicken in mixture.
  2. Over medium heat, saute the garlic in olive oil. (To get optimal taste of garlic, mince well). Then add the chicken and saute until cooked (about 5-7 minutes). Place the chicken in the microwave or oven to keep warm.
  3. Deglaze the same pan with the rum. Slice the red pepper length wise and saute in pan. If necessary, add a little more olive oil.
  4. Dice the mango. Turn down heat to medium low. When the red pepper is still slightly crunchy, add the mango, brown sugar or cinnamon, and chili powder. If you like, you can substitute the chili pepper for hot sauce. Cook only for a couple of minutes, until the mango is warm and slightly mushy. If you like it spicier, add more chili powder or hot sauce. Add chicken to sauce in pan for a minute to rewarm.
  5. Serve over white rice.
