Finding the Ingredients
Before you start cooking, you’ll need to gather all the necessary ingredients. Most of them are available at your local market, but some may be harder to find. You’ll need chicken breasts, olive oil, chili powder, Thai chili, fresh mango, lime juice, red onion, bell peppers, black beans, white rice, tortilla chips, and fresh avocado. If you can’t find any of these ingredients, try looking online or at specialty stores.
Preparing the Mango Chicken
The first step in making Mango Chili Chicken is to prepare the chicken breasts. Preheat your oven to 375 degrees F. Heat oil in a pan over medium-high heat. Season the chicken with chili powder, salt, and pepper. Cook for about 4-5 minutes per side or until the internal temperature reaches 165°F when tested with an instant-read thermometer in the thickest part. Remove from heat and let it rest.
Making the Delicious Mango Glaze
While the chicken is cooking, it’s time to make the delicious mango glaze. In a large bowl, combine fresh mango, Thai chili, chili powder, lime juice, and chili garlic sauce. Blend them together until smooth. Add a little bit of water if necessary.
Adding the Glaze to the Chicken
Now that the chicken is cooked and the glaze is ready, it’s time to combine the two. Coat each chicken breast with the mango glaze and place them on a baking sheet. Bake in the oven for about 10-12 minutes or until the glaze is caramelized and the chicken is cooked through.
Serving the Mango Chili Chicken
Once the Mango Chili Chicken is ready, it’s time to serve it up! Arrange the chicken breasts on a platter and top with pico de gallo and fresh avocado. Serve with Mexican rice, black beans, a nice cucumber salad and tortilla chips for a complete meal. And for dessert, I recommend a delicious plate of Ube Flan.
