Mango chicken

Heyhey! Ok so I made mango chicken this week and before you get all excited and get high expectations. It didn’t go 100% according to plan. It tasted good but I wanted them to have a crusty layer. The layer unfortunately didn’t stick though haha. Whatever, even failures should be posted I guess.

I started out by cutting the mango into small pieces so it was easier to blend:

So as I just told you, the next step is to blend the mango:

I added a couple of things to spice it up a little. Here’s the list of ingredients:

  • Rice vinegar
  • Red pepper
  • Ginger
  • Garlic
  • Chipotle sauce
  • Cilantro
  • Lime juice

(This is chipotle sauce. I mean the name says so but in case you couldn’t tell.)

Then when all of this is blended and kinda looks like sauce, you can pour it on the chicken. I also added some more red pepper and scallion.

If you want the chicken to really taste like your mango sauce, you should probably let it rest for at least a day. I put mine in a vacuum bin.

As you can see, I also made a little extra sauce that I could use to cover the chicken in after I covered them in bread crumbs and also use as a dip.

And then last (besides plating) is baking the chicken. When that’s all done you can start plating and add some of your sauce if you like. If you did it right your chicken will have a crunchy layer. Since I didn’t mine doesn’t haha.

But at least it still tasted fine. I ended up using it in a salad which was pretty good. I made a dressing out of ketjap, rice vinegar and just a bit of hot sauce.

Anyway, thanks for reading about my mango chicken which didn’t exactly turned out as planned. Who knows, I might try again some other time.
