Thai Chicken & Mango Stir-Fry

January/February 2010

Your rating: None Average: 4 (75 votes)

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.

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!

spicy, filling, versatile

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.

fresh veggies, herbs
delicious & healthy.

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.

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!
