  • In a very large nonstick skillet, heat oil over medium heat. Add chicken; cook for 8 to 10 minutes or until chicken is no longer pink, turning once halfway through cooking. Remove chicken from skillet; coarsely chop and keep warm. Add cumin seeds to the hot skillet. Cook about 30 seconds or until fragrant. Add drained stir-fry vegetables, the chile pepper and garlic. Cook and stir over medium heat for 3 to 5 minutes or until heated through. Stir in cilantro.

  • Divide pepper mixture among four serving plates. Top with chicken. Spoon mango mixture over chicken. If desired, garnish with lime wedges.

Tips

Tip: Because chile peppers contain volatile oils that can burn your skin and eyes, avoid direct contact with them as much as possible. When working with chile peppers, wear plastic or rubber gloves. If your bare hands do touch the peppers, wash your hands and nails well with soap and warm water.
