Photo at left, and Original Recipe from:  http://amritac.wordpress.com/2009/05/28/sugar-high-and-tipsy/ 


This is my revised version of the above recipe...

Serves 2-3


What You Need:
- 2 boneless, skinless chicken breasts
- 1 tbsp olive oil
- 1 large ripe mango, diced
- 3 cloves garlic, chopped finely (or equivalent jarred minced)
- 1/2 tsp of red chili powder
- 2 tbsp bourbon  (optional)
- 1 tsp sugar  (optional, if using bourbon)
- Salt & Pepper to taste

How-To:
  1. Flatten chicken breasts between plastic wrap to 1/4" thickness, or even.
  2. Heat oil in pan, and fry chicken to brown.  Remove from heat to cutting board. Toss garlic and mangos into the pan w/ the oil.  Cook on low for 2 minutes, or till mango starts to break down.
  3. Meanwhile, shred chicken into bite-size pieces using two forks.  Add into mangos with chili powder and sugar&bourbon if using.
  4. Cover and cook 10 minutes.  Season to taste w/ salt and ground pepper.  Heat 1 min on medium.
  5. Serve hot w/ steamed rice.
***MY NOTES***
Made this w/ Jeff in 2011 - w/o bourbon, but having cooked chicken w/ 3 sprigs rosemary.
Made for Mom & Dennis 2/2012 - w/o bourbon.
