Chicken with Sweet Potato Mango and Chilli

    50 minutes

    This is a tropical tasting dish that is just as good vegetarian as it is with chicken! Honey and mango lend the sauce it's sweetness but it's nicely countered with salty tamari and spicy chilli sauce.

    Great tasting flavours. Make sure you vary the amount of Tobasco to suit, I only used half of the recipe amount. I served it on rice but I am not sure if this is the best option or not.  -  12 Jan 2013


    Very good combo of flavors! I like the spiciness, but I would recommend being careful with how much hot sauce you add, cuz it can get pretty hot pretty fast. I liked how tender the sweet potatoes got with boiling them, but roasting them would work too. Served it atop quinoa for a delicious meal.  -  02 Aug 2009  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)


    Easy and full of flavor. I used non-stick spray instead of the oil. I served it over whole wheat pasta. This dish is super duper healthy yet it doesn't taste boring!  -  26 Mar 2008  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
