  • 2 chicken breasts or thighs, diced
  • 2 ripe mangoes, peeled and diced
  • 1 bell pepper, sliced
  • 3 green onions, chopped
  • 3 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 tablespoon fresh ginger, minced
  • 3 tablespoons soy sauce
  • 2 tablespoons rice vinegar
  • 2 tablespoons honey
  • 1 tablespoon cornstarch
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • 1 tablespoon sesame oil
  • Red pepper flakes (optional)


Start by dicing the chicken into bite-sized pieces. Peel and dice the mangoes, slice the bell pepper, and chop the green onions. Mince the garlic and ginger.

Marinating the Chicken

In a bowl, combine the soy sauce, rice vinegar, honey, minced garlic, and ginger. Add the diced chicken to the bowl and mix well. Let the chicken marinate for at least 20 minutes to absorb the flavors.

Cooking the Chicken

Heat a large skillet or wok over medium-high heat and add the sesame oil. Add the marinated chicken and stir-fry until it is cooked through and lightly browned, about 5-7 minutes. Remove the chicken from the skillet and set aside.

Making the Sauce

In the same skillet, add a bit more sesame oil if needed. Combine soy sauce, rice vinegar, honey, and cornstarch in a small bowl, mixing well to dissolve the cornstarch. Pour this mixture into the skillet and bring to a simmer, stirring continuously until the sauce thickens.

Combining Chicken and Sauce

Return the cooked chicken to the skillet, ensuring it is well-coated with the sauce. Cook for a few more minutes until everything is heated through.

Adding Vegetables and Mangoes

Add the sliced bell peppers to the skillet and stir-fry for about 3-4 minutes until they are tender but still crisp. Add the diced mangoes and chopped green onions, stirring gently to combine.

Final Cooking Steps

Let everything simmer together for another 2-3 minutes to allow the flavors to meld. Adjust the seasoning with salt, pepper, and red pepper flakes if desired.

Serving Suggestions

Serve the Asian mango chicken hot over a bed of steamed rice or noodles. Garnish with fresh herbs like cilantro or basil and a sprinkle of sesame seeds for added flavor and visual appeal.

Health Benefits

Chicken is a great source of lean protein, and mangoes are rich in vitamins A and C. This dish uses fresh ingredients to ensure you get the most nutritional benefits while enjoying a delicious meal.


For a spicier version, add more red pepper flakes or a chopped chili pepper to the sauce. You can also add other vegetables like broccoli, snap peas, or carrots for more variety and nutrition.

Tips for Success

Ensure the chicken is cooked thoroughly by checking that it reaches an internal temperature of 165°F (74°C). Taste the sauce as it simmers and adjust the seasoning to balance the sweet and savory flavors perfectly.


  1. Can I use frozen mangoes?
    • Yes, you can use frozen mangoes if fresh ones are not available. Just make sure to thaw and drain them before adding to the dish.
  2. How can I make this dish vegetarian?
    • Substitute the chicken with tofu or tempeh and use vegetable broth instead of chicken broth.
  3. What other fruits can I use?
    • Pineapple, peaches, or apricots can be great substitutes for mangoes in this recipe.
  4. How do I store leftovers?
    • Store leftovers in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to 3 days. Reheat gently on the stovetop or in the microwave before serving.
  5. Can I prepare this dish in advance?
    • Yes, you can prepare the chicken and vegetables ahead of time and store them separately. Combine and reheat just before serving for the best texture and flavor.
