Ingredient Checklist


Instructions Checklist
  • Place chicken on a solid, level surface. Firmly pound with the smooth side of a meat mallet to an even 1/4-inch thickness.

  • Pour flour into a shallow bowl. Whisk eggs with water in a separate bowl. Spread bread crumbs on a shallow plate.

  • Dredge each chicken breast in flour. Dip into the egg mixture; press into the bread crumbs to coat both sides. Place breaded chicken on a large plate.

  • Combine mangoes, cream cheese, heavy cream, and mango jam in a blender; puree into a smooth sauce. Transfer sauce to the refrigerator to thicken up.

  • Heat oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Cook breaded chicken until golden brown and no longer pink in the center, about 3 minutes per side.

  • Spoon mango sauce over cooked chicken. Garnish with chopped shallots and sea salt.

I feel like this recipe has a lot of potential and could be 5 stars with a few small changes. The sauce tasted like cream cheese with only the tiniest hint of mango. I doubled the jam to increase the mango flavor but that made it sweet like a dessert and still didn't offer much mango flavor. The shallots were a much needed balance of flavor but I didn't love the how strong the raw shallots were. I will try this again and next time: 1. Reduce sauce by half because as is it yields way too much. 2. Experiment with some seasoning in the bread crumbs and/or sauce to enhance flavor 3. Sauté the shallots. Read More
