Thai Chicken and Mango Stir-Fry
I have never been a fan of mango. The texture of it didn’t go over well. I figured I might as well try it again, seeing that because I am older and wiser my taste buds have probably changed. And they have!
Mango is so awesome! If you haven’t tried mango then I would give it a go! They’re in season right now as well so the grocery stores are loaded with them and they are very reasonable in price.
I didn’t even know how to cut a mango when I first got them. I tried to slice it down the middle and it failed miserably; it was all stuck around the big pit and I had to try and gnaw it off. Not the look you want. Especially because this was juicy.
I quickly realized I cut it wrong and I searched and found this awesome video: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lvLdPjpELyU
Ok, once I figured out how to cut a mango without it looking like a pile of mush I was ready to make a fabulous stir fry, complete with ‘fried rice’.
- Spoonful of coconut oil or olive oil
- 1 head of cauliflower, cut into small-ish pieces
- 3 tablespoons of gluten free soy sauce
- 3 teaspoons of olive oil
- 1 teaspoon sriracha
- 2 garlic cloves, minced
- 1 pound (or however much you want) boneless, skinless chicken breasts, cubed
- 1 orange bell pepper, sliced
- 1 tablespoon jalapeno, minced
- 1 teaspoon fresh ginger, minced
- 1 mango, cubed
- 4 tablespoons of green onions, diced
- Add the cauliflower pieces to a food processor with the shredding attachment to get it into “rice” size.
- Place a large skillet over medium-high heat and add coconut oil. Then add the riced cauliflower.
- Add 2 tablespoons of the soy sauce, 2 teaspoons of olive oil, and 1 teaspoon sriracha, as well as a little salt to the riced cauliflower. Mix everything to coat and cook to brown the cauliflower.
- As the ‘rice’ is browning, place another pan over medium heat with some olive oil with minced garlic and cubed chicken. Pour 1 tablespoon of the soy sauce over chicken.
- Once chicken is almost done cooking, add bell pepper, jalapeno, ginger, mango, green onions, and a little bit of salt and pepper to the chicken. Cover to let steam the veggies.
- When the chicken is cooked all the way and the veggies are softened, make yourself a plate of rice and the chicken mixture.
- Add some chopped cilantro on top.
- Be amazed that you created something so wonderful.
