I let my taste buds go on 'walk about' one afternoon at the grocery store and this recipe was the result of their adventure. It works well with chicken or pork or even right off the spoon! I recommend serving Jasmine rice as a side. It is the perfect complement.



Original recipe yields 6 servings
The ingredient list now reflects the servings specified


  • Heat the oil in a large, deep skillet over medium heat. Sprinkle salt over both sides of each piece of chicken; cook the chicken in the hot oil until browned on both sides, but still slightly pink in the center, 3 to 5 minutes per side. Remove chicken to a plate and set aside. Add the onion, garlic, and jalapeno pepper to the remaining oil in the skillet; cook and stir until the onion is tender and beginning to brown, 5 to 7 minutes. Stir the cherry and mango into the mixture; cook and stir until the liquid in the pan is slightly thickened, 3 to 5 minutes. Add the cherry juice, lemon juice, and brown sugar to the mixture; stir and return to a simmer.

  • Return the chicken to the pan. Ladle some of the sauce over the chicken to cover. Return the mixture to a simmer and cook until the liquid thickens and the chicken is no longer pink in the center and the juices run clear, about 10 minutes. An instant-read thermometer inserted into the center should read at least 165 degrees F (74 degrees C).

Cook's Note

Don't reduce the liquid too much-you'll want enough for serving over the chicken and also rice, if you choose it as a side dish.

Good but I had to alter the recipe since I couldn't find frozen tart cherries and sparkling cherry juice. Instead I did frozen sweet cherries and Sparkling cranberry juice to make up for the tartness. Plus I added extra jalapeno since I was afraid it would be too sweet not my smartest idea and it was not appreciated by my 4-yr old. I would make it again though.... Read More

This was unusual. It was too spicy for my taste. If I were to make it again I would omit the jalapeno. I think I would have like it much better that way. I used regular cran-cherry juice instead of the sparkling cherry juice and doubled the sugar. Read More
