Stir-fried Chicken with Mango and Roasted Almonds

Stir-fried Chicken with Mango and Roasted Almonds01

  • 1 or 2 mango(es), ripe but not overly ripe (I used about 480 gm of flesh)
  • 200 gm chicken breast
  • 50 gm almonds
  • 2 tsp light soy sauce
  • 1/2 tsp sugar
  • 1 tsp cornflour
  • 1/2 tsp Shaoxing wine
  • 1 tsp water
  1. Use a sharp knife to cut the mango lengthwise next to the seed into three parts (two halves and a middle part with the seed). Carefully cut parallel lines through the two halves of mango flesh down to the skin. Scoop out the flesh with a tablespoon. For the middle part, peel the skin and cut the flesh off from the seed. Then cut mango into strips, about 3.5 to 4cm in length. Or you might like to cut into cubes to your liking.
  2. Rinse chicken and drain well. Remove fat. Julienne into 3cm strips. Mix with marinade for 20 minutes.
  3. Place almonds in preheated oven at 180C (356F) about 10 to 12 minutes, or until fragrant. Make sure not to burn them. Let cool. Place in a plastic bag, pound into small pieces. Set aside.
  4. Heat 2 tablespoons of oil over medium-high heat. Stir-fry chicken until done. Turn off the heat. Add mango, quickly combine all ingredients. Dish up and sprinkle roasted almonds. Enjoy!

  • You can cook this simple and delicious dish on the go. The key is to get really sweet and juicy mango. And the roasted almonds would bring this dish up to another level by adding very sweet fragrance, as well as crunchy texture.
  • If you can’t get very sweet mango, you might like to sprinkle a small amount of sugar to adjust.
  • My friend SK recommended slivered almonds initially. Unfortunately, I didn’t have any at home. Thus I roasted whole almonds and pound them into small pieces. If silvered almonds are used, just sprinkle over the dish after they are roasted.
