Bell Pepper, Mango and Red Onion Chicken

Bell Pepper, Mango and Red Onion Chicken

-WARNING – This is not your usual boring chicken recipe. This is more like… an exotic recipe! The kind you definitively have to try because the combination of ingredients taste really great. I first ‘discovered’ this combination when I created my Mango, Shrimp and Arugula Salad (my first recipe on the blog!) and I loved it (<= understatement). Mango, shrimp and red onion truly are amazing together. So when I spotted a similar recipe using chicken, I knew it would be a winner! I added some bell pepper and lime juice et voilà! I had myself a satisfying, healthy and super tasty meal, ready in no time. Next time, I will make sure to choose a mango that is not too ripe so it holds shape when cooking. If you’re not afraid of the sweet and savory flavors combined together, then you’ll love this unusual chicken recipe!

  1. Tried making this tonight – it is absolutely wonderful! My husband, who doesn’t like to try a lot of new things said, ‘I would eat this again.’ That is a huge compliment from him. I love the simplicity of the recipe and the way the flavors go together. Thank you for the recipe – I will probably be making it pretty regularly now.
