  • 3 cups water

  • 1 ½ cups jasmine rice

  • 1 teaspoon salt

  • 3 skinless, boneless chicken breast halves

  • ½ cup soy sauce

  • 1 tablespoon water, or as desired

  • 1 (14 ounce) can coconut milk

  • 1 cup white sugar

  • 2 tablespoons curry powder

  • 1 mango - peeled, seeded, and diced

  • 2 cups clover sprouts, or to taste

  • 1 cup finely chopped cashews

  • 1 bunch fresh cilantro, finely chopped

  • 4 green onions, chopped


  1. Combine 3 cups water, rice, and salt in a saucepan; bring to a boil. Reduce heat to low, cover saucepan, and simmer until liquid is absorbed, about 15 minutes. Remove saucepan from heat and let sit until rice is tender, about 5 minutes more.

  2. 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.

  3. 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.

  4. 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.
