  • Place chicken breasts in a skillet and add soy sauce and 1 tablespoon water; turn heat to medium-high. Cover skillet and cook chicken, turning occasionally, until no longer pink in the center, about 20 minutes. Cut chicken into cubes.

  • Combine coconut milk, sugar, and curry powder in a saucepan; bring to a simmer. Add mango to curry sauce and cook until heated through, about 5 minutes.

  • Spoon rice into a bowl and top with sprouts, cashews, cilantro, green onions, and chicken. Drizzle mango curry sauce over chicken.

Cook's Notes:

For a stronger flavor, add red pepper powder to the mango sauce. You could also use pineapple instead of mango, and add shrimp and lime for a more tropical curry flavor.

I made this for the weekend and it came out very tasty. Mango and cilantro is a very good combination and the coconut milk gave the dish a creamy touch. I did leave all the sugar out but added another mango. Read More

Argh.. I didn't like this. The chicken was too salty from the soy sauce. I only used 1/2 cup of sugar. The mango made it really really sweet. I do not think the mango or the sugar is necessary. Read More

I thought this was very tasty. Everyone liked it. I used quinoa instead of rice and I only had some shredded chicken. I omitted the 1 cup of sugar and instead used some sweet chili sauce and a dash of fish sauce. I blended the mango into the sauce. Really quick and easy to throw together. I would make this again and add more mango some red/ orange bell pepper chunks and some red pepper flakes. Read More

I used only 1/4 cup sugar. It would have been way too sweet with a whole cup. I did not have any mango so I left it out. Added about 1 tsp red pepper flakes. Delicious!!! Read More

I'm giving it 4 stars because I made changes (in part based on other users' reviews) and think if I'd followed to recipe it'd have been too sweet/salty. But I'd give it a 5 star as I made it and am making again now just a few days later it was so good: - Left out ALL sugar - Left out the soy sauce - Used chicken breasts marinated in the chile sauce - Added Thai red chili paste (both to the sauce and with water for cooking chicken) - Added peas and diced potatoes Read More

Excellent template. Very easy to follow. This recipe is definitely true to its name "Sweet". Maybe too sweet for some. I cut back on the sugar by half and it could have been cut back even more. We loved it! Read More

Very good. Although I didn't have all the ingredients that they called for and had to make some changes. I didn't have any mango. So I used fresh pineapple with juice instead. It was very good next time I will try it with the mango. I also didn't have cashews so I chopped up some pecans also good. Everything else was the same. I also used way less sugar about 1/4 cup. I also found that the soy sauce was very strong. I would probably use less and more water perhaps add a little sugar to it as well so it's not so sour. Read More
