Spicy Mango Chicken (omg, make plenty!)

Submitted by: SEAGIRLRUN

Introduction

I created this recipe after we got tired of driving 30 miles to a local favorite! This one is probably healthier anyway.

Double the recipe because you will want to eat it again tomorrow!

Number of Servings: 6

Ingredients

    Canola Oill, 2 tbsp (remove)
    Sesame Oil, 1 tbsp (remove)

    Chicken Breast, no skin, 24 ounces
    Flour (optional), 2 Tablespoons
    _________________________________________
    Mangos, 2 fruit, skinned and chopped into 1" pieces, about 2 cups (Frozen mango chunks also works great!)
    Green Green Pepper, 1 large cut into strips
    Red Bell Pepper, 1 large, cut into strips
    Onions, raw, 1 med. sliced
    Jalepenos, 2 sliced (seeds removed optional if you want it with less heat)
    Garlic, 3 cloves, minced or 2 teaspoons
    Fresh Basil, about 10 leaves, shredded
    _____________________________________

    Sauce: (if you don't have all these, just use what you have until it tastes salty/sweet!)
    1/4 Cup Dark corn syrup
    *Soy Sauce, .5 tbsp (optional)
    Kikkoman Lite Teriyaki Sauce, 1/8 cup
    Classic StirFry Sauce-1tbsp, 1/8 Cup

    Serve with Jasmine enriched long grain rice, Mahatma, cooked, about 3 cups for 1/2 cup servings

Directions

Slice chicken into small thin pieces which will cook quickly. Place chicken pieces in a bowl. Salt and pepper the chicken. Sprinkle flour over it and stir to coat. (The flour is entirely optional, it's just as good without flour and you'll save a few calories).

Chop mango and set aside.

In another bowl, place onion, bell pepper and jalepeno.

Heat canola oil in a wok. add chicken and cook, stirring occasionally until browned and cooked thoroughly. You may have better results to cook the chicken in batches. You can also use chicken broth to save fat if desired.

When all the chicken is cooked, add the garlic and sesame oil. Stir. Add vegetables and continue to cook another 5 minutes until softened slightly. Add mango and basil leaves and cook 2 more minutes.

Remove from heat, pour the sauce over all and stir to coat.
Serve with Steamed Jasmine Rice.

Makes about 6 servings - about 1 cup each, with 1/2 cup of Rice each

    Gosh, you are so right! I'm so sorry, I usually make a double batch, oops! I have changed the recipe to reflect the portion. Thanks for mentioning this and trying the recipe!
