Thai Chicken and Mango Stir-Fry

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’.

Ingredients:mango chicken

  • 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
  • cilantro

Directions:

  1. Add the cauliflower pieces to a food processor with the shredding attachment to get it into “rice” size.
  2. Place a large skillet over medium-high heat and add coconut oil. Then add the riced cauliflower.
  3. 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.
  4. 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.
  5. 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.
  6. When the chicken is cooked all the way and the veggies are softened, make yourself a plate of rice and the chicken mixture.
  7. Add some chopped cilantro on top.
  8. Be amazed that you created something so wonderful.
