Method

  1. Heat the grill to high. Peel and dice the mango, toss with most of the spring onions, and the cumin and rice vinegar, then set aside. Put the couscous in a large heatproof bowl, pour over 400ml boiling water, then cover with cling film and set aside.
  2. Mix together the marmalade and mustard. Lay the chicken strips in a roasting tin, then brush over half of the marmalade glaze. Grill for 4-5 mins, then turn the chicken over and brush with the remaining glaze. Grill for a further 4-5 mins until the chicken is cooked through and the glaze is bubbling. The couscous should then be ready. Stir in the mango mixture and serve with the hot chicken strips and the remaining spring onions sprinkled over.

Good recipe which we enjoyed. However, for my taste, next time I'll use less mango and add something more savoury like garlic to balance the slightly too fruitiness of the overall dish.

This is a family favourite - made it from the original magazine recipe and have returned to it frequently since with either the sausages or the chicken. Having it tonight with sausages - yum!

Not great at all, maybe my mango wasn't ripe enough? And mustard and marmalade... they just don't work great together as far as I'm concerned. My first Good Food Fail!

Really enjoyed this - both hot and cold. Would work well served at a (cold) buffet.

nope, not for me, neither i nor b/f liked this - tasted worse second time we cooked it so consigned to the bin - too sickly, yet without flavour - mango was overpowering.

I liked this dish, but I think I'll pop in the BBQ next time. It got way too soggy and wet in the oven. I liked the flavors and it was a good, light meal. My boyfriend did not love it though, apparently he does not like mango..

I really didn't like this one - far too sweet - I think I will try again, but use a difference kind of marmalade!

Made it for friends - they were amazed by mango pieces and taste of meat (well, I used vegetarian corn instead of meat) and we totally enjoyed it. Although I found that less vinegar would be better.

Thanks

Sorry, previous note should not read that I added balsamic vinegar, it should read white wine vinegar.

Made the dish for family meal. General concensus was that the sticky chicken was great and we all agreed that we would have that again very soon. The couscous wasn't such a success tastewise. I think it may have been the balsamic vinegar that we weren't too keen on, so I might make it again but without the vinegar and see if that is better received.

Nope, didnt like it. Dont know why. Maybe I made it wrong but nobody really liked it :(

Really good and easy. Tempted even my very picky daughter. Put the stock in the couscous the 2nd time I made it. Good either way.
