The most exciting part of this chicken dinner is not the sweet taste, but the mango bits that help with the chewing of the chicken. You may skip the cornstarch if you don’t favor a thick creamy sauce. Mango might aid in decreasing risk of macular degeneration and colon cancer, while improving digestion and bone health, as well as skin and hair.
- 2 Fresh Boneless Skinless Chicken Thigh Cutlets (40g, 220c)
- 1 teaspoon chopped Ginger (2c)
- 1 Tablespoons Coconut or Olive Oil (120c)
- 1 mango, peeled and cubed, about 7 ounces (2.8g, 201c)

- 1 Tablespoon soy sauce (1g, 11c)
- ½ teaspoon rice vinegar (10c)
- ½ teaspoon salt
- ½ teaspoon black pepper
- 1 teaspoon cornstarch, diluted in 4 ounces water (20c)
Heat the oil in a heavy frying pan. Add the garlic and celery and saute for 10 minutes on medium until translucent.
Add cashew butter and stir until melted. Chop chicken into tiny bits. Add the chicken to the pan. Cook for about 10 minutes, stirring occasionally until the chicken is no longer pink.
Meanwhile, in a medium-sized bowl, combine the mango with the sweetener, cumin, ginger, and nutmeg.
Pour the mixture over the cooked chicken and gently stir to cover the chicken pieces.
Add soy sauce, vinegar, water and cornstarch mixture and salt, and pepper. Cook for about 10 more minutes.
