4 servings


  • 4 skinless, boneless chicken breasts

  • 1 cup all-purpose flour

  • 3 eggs

  • 2 tablespoons water

  • 4 cups bread crumbs

  • 2 mangos, peeled and coarsely chopped

  • 1 (8 ounce) package cream cheese, softened

  • 1 cup heavy whipping cream

  • 2 tablespoons mango jam

  • ¼ cup vegetable oil, or as needed

  • 2 shallots, chopped

  • sea salt to taste


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

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

  3. 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.

  4. 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.

  5. 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.

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