Really enjoyed this recipe, mine was reminiscent of a well spiced frankfurter.
(Mostly leaving this for my own record) Rubbed the raw chicken down with spice mix (double cayenne+tumeric) salt and pepper (black). Seared chicken in hot cast iron pan, till internal temp was 65C and outside had good caramelisation. Fish sauce next in to cool pan, it was significantly reduced by the time I go the lemon juice in and finished the deglaze. Then mangos were added to the now (much cooler pan), cooked until chicken internal temp 75C whereupon the mango had reduced well. I will be making this again, I'll probably add a slice of ginger with the lemon juice next time.
Soy sauce is often substituted for fish sauce which is a decidely acquired taste.
We loved it! I skipped the fish sauce altogether tho because lets face it, eew! I used a package of frozen mangoes and they worked great. Thinking of maybe adding some cashews for a little crunch next time.
This recipe is perfect. I use chicken with the skin on and marinate it in the spices for a few minutes along with some salt. I also used 2 Mangoes. Amazing!
This was very tasty and savory. I doubled the amount of spices and mangos and went light on the fish sauce. As one reviewer said, the fish sauce smell is not the best, but it was very tasty. Put the mangos in at the very end and just cook till heated through. I used super ripe mangos and doubled the amount. It was delicious, but the mangos got pretty brown and unattractive looking b/c I cooked them too long in the fish sauce.
The smell when adding the fish sauce was disgusting, which ruined it for me! But after all of the ingredients blended it wasn't bad. I didn't really taste much of the mango flavor; I felt it was lost in the seasoning. If I make it again, I'd go much lighter on the fish sauce and maybe that would let more mango flavor come through.
My family loved this spicy/savory recipe! The mango, lime, spices, and fresh basil lend a special twist to ordinary chicken and rice recipes. Very easy to prepare.
