1) One of my New Year's resolutions is to learn how to use my fancy-ass new camera. As such, my photos should improve throughout the year. Today, however, is not one of those days. A donkey could probably have taken better pictures. The end.
2) I first tasted this dish at a friend's house about a year ago. She forgot to put the mango in and I asked innocently, Why do they call it Mango Chicken? To which she responded something like, Son of a bitch. But it still tasted good! So I've made it a couple more times and am sharing the recipe with you today.
I realized recently I should probably post the photo of the final product before I get into the "instructional" portion of the post. Slowly, but surely, I am learning how to be a better blogger. It only took five years. I done learned lots in public school.
Thusly, I present you with chicken breast, jalapeno, mango, cilantro and ginger. The picture (I warned you) doesn't do it justice. Also, I forgot to garnish with lime. Don't you go forgettin' like your ol' granny!
Here are all of my neatly wrapped chickens n' stuff. You can wrap them up any old way, as long as they're not leaky. Then ya bake em for about 20 minutes.
And out comes your meal. It's moist and tender. The ginger gives it a kick. The jalapenos are spicy, but not too spicy, I promise. Unless you're a wuss. And the mango works. I'm not sure how or why, it just does.
It's a really good, fast, easy meal, with easy cleanup, which is a relief. So many nights I find I've dirtied three pots and two cutting boards cooking dinner for two people. What in the hell is going on over here?
Anyway, for the recipe, CLICK HERE. It is, of course, a Martha meal.
That is all, dears. Have a lovely weekend and see you Monday!
