This is a tropical tasting dish that is just as good vegetarian as it is with chicken! Honey and mango lend the sauce it's sweetness, but it's nicely countered with salty tamari and spicy hot sauce. Serve over rice or noodles.

Ingredients

  • 2 cups cubed peeled sweet potatoes

  • 2 tablespoons vegetable oil

  • 1 pound skinless, boneless chicken breast halves - cubed

  • 1 ripe mango, peeled and cubed

  • ¼ teaspoon crushed red pepper flakes
