Orange Mango chicken

Submitted by: AMYCLEMENTS


Number of Servings: 4

Ingredients

    3 tablespoons olive oil

    4 skinless boneless chicken breast halves

    1/8 teaspoon ground thyme

    salt and freshly ground black pepper to taste

    1 lemon, juiced

    1 cup orange juice

    1 mango - peeled, seeded and sliced

    1/4 teaspoon ground ginger

    1/8 teaspoon ground cinnamon

Directions

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.

    Thought I would try this for supper, it was ok. The mango orange sauce has a good flavor but the chicken didn't have much flavor even though i cut it up in strips and put it right in the sauce. If I make it again I may try it with fish instead... - 4/9/10

  • Children liked it and thought it was nice to have a unique way of making chicken, so I guess you can say this was kid approved. :) I thought it was nice but not something I'd want to make again soon. - 4/5/10

  • This was delicious. I want to double the sauce next time. Plus after the chicken is cooked, I want to cut it up into bite size pieces and put them back into the sauce to finish along with the sauce. - 1/10/09

  • I happened to have all of these ingredients on hand tonight, the mango is frozen but I thawed it and it tasted like a little bit of fresh island air in these Utah mountains of snow!! Nicely done Amy!! - 12/8/08
