Stir-Fried Mango Chicken

I fell in love with the mango chicken dish at a great Chinese restaurant years ago, so I tried to make it at home! Here is my version--easy, fresh, and delicious! The colors are beautiful and there is ample sauce for your rice. Don't forget to put some rice on before you start this, as it goes quick!

4 servings


  • 1 cup mango nectar

  • ½ cup chicken stock

  • 2 tablespoons cornstarch

  • 2 tablespoons soy sauce

  • 1 tablespoon olive oil

  • 1 pound skinless, boneless chicken breast, cut into 1/4-inch strips

  • 1 small onion, halved and sliced

  • 1 clove garlic, crushed

  • 1 medium red bell pepper, cut into 1/2-inch strips

  • 1 medium green bell pepper, cut into 1/2-inch strips

  • 2 medium mangos - peeled, seeded, and cut into thin strips

  • 2 cups hot cooked rice


  1. Whisk mango nectar, chicken stock, cornstarch, and soy sauce together in a bowl until well combined; set sauce aside.

  2. Heat oil in a large pan or wok over medium-high heat. Add chicken, onion, and garlic and fry until onion is soft and chicken is no longer pink in the center and the juices run clear, 3 to 5 minutes.

  3. Add bell peppers to the pan and toss gently. Cover and steam until softened but still firm, about 3 minutes. Add mangos; cook until heated through, about 1 minute.

  4. Give reserved sauce another quick whisk and stir gently into the pan. Cook until sauce is thick, 1 to 2 minutes; peppers and mangos should still be firm, not mushy!

  5. Remove from heat and serve with rice.

Cook's Notes:

You can chop the ingredients into bite-sized pieces instead of cutting into strips.

Don't let it sit too long before serving! The veggies with get mushy.
