Method

  1. Trim the roots and tops off the spring onions and slice diagonally. Peel and grate the ginger and crush or finely chop the garlic. Cut the mango lengthways on either side of the stone, then peel off the skin and chop the flesh into cubes. Slice the chicken into thin strips.

  2. Heat half the oil in a large frying pan or wok. Add the chicken and stir-fry for 4-5 minutes until lightly coloured. Remove from the pan with a slotted spoon and transfer to a plate. Heat the remaining oil in the pan and add the spring onions, ginger and garlic. Stir-fry for 30 seconds, then add the mango and vegetables and stir-fry for a further 1 minute.

  3. Return the chicken to the pan and splash in the soy and chilli sauces. Stir until evenly mixed, then cover and cook for a further 2 minutes until the chicken is tender and the veggies are slightly softened.

Great recipe! For the stir fry veg we had beansprouts, mange tout, brocolli, corn, peppers, leeks, carrots and fennel. Wok was full so spent a bit more time mixing together, vegetables were all still crunchy! Added some lime zest and lime juice when frying the chicken and to add some freshness at the end, along with a sprinkle of coriander. The fresh mango worked very well with the chicken and other flavours. Good balance of sweet/salty/sour!

I was disappointed by this recipe. I think it was my cooking rather than the recipe though, judging by everyone else's comments. I used tinned mango, which were far too sloppy and didn't taste of much. Next time I will use fresh mango, and cook the veg far less so it all stays crunchy and the colours stay brighter.

This was delicious - we had it for our 5:2 diet day dinner with a tiny bit of rice. I added some extra vegetables and only put half the amount of chicken in (well, it was diet day) and it was great - very filling with all the veg (I added peppers, broccoli and courgettes). The mango I used was very ripe, so it just melted away into the sauce. It was yummy and we'll definitely have this again. I realised too late that I didn't have quite enough sweet chilli sauce left, so I just added a couple of splashes of Tabasco to pep it up a bit.

Delicious! So tasty & easy to cook. I cheated & used a pack of mango cubes - v happy with the amount of sauce you were left with. I served it with rice noodles. First stir fry I've made where I haven't used a bought sauce. Will definitely be making this again.

Simply delicious! Lovely cleansing taste from the mango. I used boneless chicken thighs which I find tastier than breast.

Really tasty recipe and super-healthy. I served it with rice and found the amount of soy sauce and sweet chilli sauce to be just right - gave it a kick without being too spicy. The only difficult bit was peeling and slicing the mango - bit of a fiddly and messy job that! Other than that, very easy.

I make this dish all the time and totally love it! It tastes sensational and can easily be whipped up with predominantly store cupboard ingredients. It's a great meal to pack in some fruit and veg although I usually throw in my own rather than buy a bag as I feel it tastes better.

Brilliant, especially as it was my first attempt at cooking a stir fry. Cooked the full amount for 2 of us with some noodles and we will be taking the leftovers to work for lunch tomorrow.

I used Halloumi instead of chicken and it was delicious. My boys loved it to. The mango was a big hit. I did put a lot more veg in as well.

Halved ingredients (cooking for two). However, despite not being a fan of spicy foods in general, I would add more chilli sauce next time. For me, the mango was a bit much. I've used chicken and mango as a main course combination before, when the mango has been part of a marinade and baked. In a stir fry? For me it didn't work too well.

I blanched the veg I used (baby corn and broccoli) because just stir frying for the stated amount of time in the recipe isn't enough cooking time, for my taste. In fact I would blanch them for around 4 minutes next time. Perhaps that's technically par boiling them, not sure.

So overall, not bad but won't be making it again in a hurry. By the way, if you haven't any rice or noodles to accompany this dish, don't worry. The stir fry alone is substantial enough.

Just gorgeous! Made as a meal with friends and kids aged 4 - 10, went down a storm. Just the time to chop the veg then off you go, quick, healthy and super tasty.

I love mangos so this is one of my favourite recipes. It's easily adaptable for vegetarians & tastes just as great with Quorn instead of chicken.

This was one of the best and easiest recipes I have found on this website. I'm not one for fruit in main courses but the mango was a perfect compliment (but it has to be a little bit hard and not too ripe for sure) especially with some chilli added. Will definitely be making it again!!

We found that the recipe amounts for the soy and chilli sauce were overpowering - there is potential so will try again with only 2tbspn soy and only 1tspn of sweet chilli. I know this is in stark contrast with some other comments though :-)
