Lynne's Mango Chicken


This spicy-sweet chicken is a favorite summertime meal.

Time: 25-30 mins.

1/2 tsp. ground cumin

1/2 tsp. ground ginger

1/4 tsp. dried thyme

1 pinch ground nutmeg

1 pinch cayenne pepper

2 Tbs. butter

1 ripe but firm mango, peeled and cut into chunks

4 boneless, skinless chicken breasts, about 1 lb.

2 green onions, thinly sliced


1/4 cup chopped fresh cilantro

Juice of 1/2 lime

In a small dish stir together spices. Sprinkle both sides of chicken breasts with spice mixture.

Heat butter in a large, nonstick frying pan over medium-high heat.

Add chicken breasts and cook, turning occasionally, until both sides are deep golden brown and chicken is no longer pink inside, about 10 to 15 minutes.

Add mango and green onions. Cook, stirring, just until heated through, about 1 minute. Remove from heat.

Sprinkle with salt and cilantro and squeeze lime juice over all. Serve immediately.
