Chicken Mango stir-fry is a quick and easy dish for a busy weeknight. Lean chicken breast, ripe mango, onion, and pepper is quickly stir-fried in sweet chili sauce and you have a dinner ready within 20 minutes.
I had this chicken mango stir-fry at one of my favorite Asian bistro restaurant the other day. I loved it very much that I decided to replicate at home within 20 minutes from start to finish.
The sweet fragrant mango slices go so well with lean chicken breast. With the addition of crunch green pepper makes this chicken mango stir-fry to be a quick and easy weeknight meal.
I am not a huge fan of sweet main dishes, but this one is a keeper. It is much healthier and quicker to make than any of those deep-fried sweetened chicken dish. So delicious and so quick to put together, this would be the perfect dinner idea for a busy weeknight.
Ingredients for Chicken Mango Stir-Fry
- Chicken breast
- Green pepper
- Thai chili sauce
- Lime juice
- Fish sauce
How To Make Chicken Mango Stir-Fry Within 20 Minutes
Make the sauce first. A store-bought Thai sweet chili sauce with a little bit of lime juice and fish sauce brings the flavor punch to the dish.
In a small bowl, combine Thai sweet chili sauce, fish sauce, and lime juice. Mix well and set aside.
I like to slice the chicken breast into thin and long strips.
Same goes to pepper and mango. However, I would suggest to cut mango slightly thicker, though, so that they don’t break easily as you stir-fry.
Stir-fry chicken first, then add the green pepper and cook until they are crisp tender. Add the sauce and stir.
Add the mango slices and green onion at last, toss to coat well. That’s all there’s to it.
Now you got a delicious chicken mango stir-fry ready in 20 minutes from start to finish. Tender chicken and crunchy pepper with sweet mango, they all go together very nicely.
A bowl of steamed rice would be all you need to enjoy this scrumptious dish. Hope you get to try it soon!
