BBQ Mango Chicken

Submitted by: DANWERNECKE

Introduction

I got the idea for this recipe from the Hungry Girl 200 reciepes for under 200 cal cookbook, just substituting chicken for tilapia. It was soooo good and takes care of the BBQ and sweet cravings in one shot. My kids even loved it. Hey, it got a picky three year old to eat...

Ingredients

    - 2 lbs of Chicken Breasts (I use Tyson 99% Fat Free boneless skinless to reduce calories and fat while increasing protien)
    - 6 to 8 tbsp of BBQ sauce (I like KC Masterpiece, low cal and good flavor)
    - 4 oz of Mango Puree (To ease use and control amount of cal I used the Beechnut baby food, one jar is all you need)
    - 2/3 tbsp Garlic Powder
    - Optional Dash of Bread Crumbs (for on top)

Directions

Preheat the oven for 375 degrees.

First mix the BBQ sauce, garlic powder, and puree mango (I use the magic bullet mixer)
Pour a third of the sauce into a baking dish.

Cut the chicken into 4 oz pieces (8 servings) and place into baking dish. Cover with sauce (I always seem to have an ounce or so left over). Sprinkle bread crumbs if desired and place inteh oven for 15 to 20 minutes, or until throughly cooked.

Enjoy with corn or baked beans to round out the meal!

    This was a good idea for a recipie! I used "Bone Suckin' Sauce" (BBQ sauce - bonesuckin.com) and i minced 1 whole mango and a medium onion; I added cilantro, parsley, and pepper... then I left it marinate for 2 days. This is SOOOO good! - 4/27/09

    I really liked the mango sauce. I used real mangos. As far as the total dish, I would grill the chicken first with a little bit of spices on it and then I would bake. The texture was a little soft for me. I would definitely make this variation again! - 5/14/09

    We loved this recipe. I made it twice...two nights in a row! I did it a little different though, I sauted an onion with about three cloves of garlic until the ontion was soft, then I added the BBQ sauce and Hot Mango Chutney (it wasn't that hot though...just gave it a kick). Over brown rice. Yum - 5/21/09

    This tasted good -- and I liked the nice soft texture of the chicken. I used canned mango from the Asian supermarket, as the regular store didn't have mango baby food. I had to cook it longer (a total of about 30 minutes) to bring it up to a safe temperature (180F on a meat thermometer). - 6/2/09
