I call this Gingered Orange Mango Chicken because it sounds more exciting that way when I introduce it to a tableful of people. Either way however it's the same great taste. Served it in the Bahamas when we had an overabundance of fresh mangoes and didn't know how to eat them all. Excellent excellent recipe. I highly recommend! Read More

the orange juice overwhelmed the flavor of the mangoes and made them taste like peaches but it was good. Read More

This was a really quick and easy recipe that I made it for the first time for guests. You can use as much or as little of the delicious mango dressing as you like. I added 1/3c orange juice to the chicken just before it was cooked thru to cut a little citric acid into the meat. Hint: have the lemon juice ready before you take the chicken out of the skillet. You do NOT want to burn the bits in the pan. Read More

I loved this recipe but my husband lived in Brazil for two years and thought the dish was an insult to mangos. I might try adding the mangos later in the recipe. Thanks! Read More

I loved the mango sauce! I didn't have any ground ginger but did a quick substitution with instant ginger tea that dissolved into the sauce. Served it over rice with a little cilantro garnish. Can't wait to make it again! Thanks! Read More

This recipe worked great served over white rice however it is much more tart than I expected (I was expecting a sweeter citrus taste like the sauce on orange chicken). I am suspecting that is because of the ratio of orange juice to mango. Next time I make this I will probably double up on the mango or possibly use a mixture of 1/2 canned mango nectar and 1/2 orange juice rather than all orange juice. Very satisfied overall especially to have a fairly healthy chicken recipe that gives a different flavor from lemon chicken or BBQ chicken! Read More

The sauce was way too tangy to go with chicken. I had to add sugar and pineapple to try to reduce the acidity. The chicken itself was ok though. Read More

Very easy to make and husband loved the mango flavor most. He even wished he could taste that more. I think because of that I'll add a little extra next time. Read More
