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.

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 :-)

Having had to become very aware of fat content in my meals, and appreciating your ratings, I'm surprised that given the 1 Tablespoon of oil (per person) in this recipe, the rating states only 2g fat per portion. If a tbsp oil is 15g fat, where did all the rest go? Should the recipe be 4 TEAspoons oil?

I made this for something different and it was easy! i enjoyed it very much. Instead if using a whole mango i dont find them easy to prepare, i use pre packed chunks for a pound out of supermarket works realy well and saves hassele.

I used frozen stir-fry vegetables, it was not a good choice as everything got very wet and the mango just turned into mush. I might give it another try with a less ripe mango and fresh veggies.

Never had mango before in a main course but it worked a treat. Needs a bit more chilli but other than that a superb dish.
