Both ripe and underripe mango work well in this chicken and vegetable stir-fry. If the mangoes you have are less ripe, use 2 teaspoons brown sugar. If they're ripe and sweet, just use 1 teaspoon or omit the brown sugar altogether.

  • Add the remaining 2 teaspoons oil, garlic, ginger and chiles (or crushed red pepper) to the pan. Cook, stirring, until fragrant, about 15 seconds. Add broccoli and water; cook, stirring, until beginning to soften, about 2 minutes. Add mangoes and scallions; cook, stirring, for 1 minute. Add the reserved sauce and chicken; cook, stirring, until the sauce is thickened and the chicken is heated through, about 1 minute. Stir in cilantro, basil and mint. Serve with lime wedges, if desired.

Great flavor! Make sure to have your prep work all done and sorted before you begin cooking and the dish will come together rather quickly. Read More

Delicious. I forgot to buy basil and substituted 1/2 TBSP of dried it was still great but the fresh would be even better. Read More

I made this last night it was great! I left out the mint because we really don't care for mint in meals but it was still very good. For us it actually made more than 6 servings. Read More

Really fantastic! I used sambal oelek (a chili paste) instead of the chilis and added extra ginger and garlic. The recipe was good until I added the herbs then WOW! It was amazing! Definitely buy all the herbs! Probably one of the best dishes I've ever made at home and I'm quite the gourmet cook. Tons of flavor. I served with rice. If you're worried about it being sweet just modify the brown sugar. I used only 2 tsp and it was perfect. Only downside was it was quite a bit of work -- lots of prep.. but man is it worth it!

We really enjoyed this dish!! As someone suggested I used the sambal oelek (1 tsp) and it had plenty of heat for us. All the herbs at the end really give it a great exotic flavor! Before I squeezed the limes I zested one of them and added that to the brown rice (along with an extra clove of crushed garlic) I served with it - really made a great compliment to the stir fry! We will be eating this a lot! Read More

Excellent! The fresh herbs make this great. If you anticipate having left overs I'd separate them before adding the herbs then add the herbs fresh the next day. I found that it didn't reheat well and the herbs lost their intense flavor. I'll definitely make this again. Read More

Delicious! This was delicious! I have made several wonderful meals from this site but this one topped the others. I did sub snap peas for broccoli since my husband doesn't like broccoli. I would try green beans next. I also added extra ginger and it was great. My best advice: if you're not watching your sodium too closely then add a 2 TBSP of soy sauce. I added soy sauce after I had a couple of bites because it was clearly lacking robust flavor. My husband & I both added a little soy sauce and it really made the flavors come together giving them each extra punch. Pros: fresh veggies herbs Cons: not enough salt! Read More

Great quick exotic dish! This was a great quick weeknight dinner! I tweaked the recipe a bit: I used pineapples & mangoes together simply because the only mango I could find at m&s today was a mango & pineapple pack - and it was amazing! The crunchiness of the pineapple really complements the chicken! Opposed as I am to frying I basically sauteed the chicken in the liquids and I used oyster sauce instead of fish sauce - I've never really seen fish sauce here in London. Maybe I'm not looking in the right places but well it was still great! I also used tenderstem broccoli and added a teaspoon of coconut oil instead of all the canola oil recommended here. It really added to the thai flavour! The only thing that I'll change the next time I make this is add more soy sauce and use lemongrass instead of using any lime or lemon. It wasn't too sour but a little more sour than I'd usually prefer. On the whole definitely a keeper! Pros: spicy filling versatile Cons: Not salty enough a little too sour Read More
