Asian style Mango chicken with brown rice

Posted by

Asian style dishes are always well received in my home. Mango and chicken come together again to create a little magic: Asian style mango chicken with sprouted brown rice. 

Once I was done with mango chicken wings, there was some leftover mango sauce. I decided to cook some more chicken with the sauce in the Asian style. I am so glad I did. 

A little effort goes into prepping, but the dish comes together in no time. I like keeping the veggies a little crunchy, so quick stir-frying over high heat is the trick. 

The sauce tastes delicious with the sweetness from the mango, and it is not overpowering. 

I paired this with sprouted brown rice, and it worked well. Regular rice and noodles will also taste delicious. I hope you like it.
