  • 4 boneless skinless chicken breasts OR 4-6 boneless skinless chicken thighs
  • 1 ½ cups diced fresh mango
  • 1 cup coconut milk
  • 1 ½ teaspoons salt or to taste
  • 1 tablespoon red curry paste
  • 3 teaspoons yellow curry powder
  • 1 ½ teaspoons garlic powder
  • 1 teaspoon ground cumin
  • 1 teaspoon chili powder
  • juice of 1 lime (about 1 tablespoon)
  • cup oil
  • optional garnishes: chopped peanuts, chopped fresh cilantro


  • In a food processor or blender combine mangoes, coconut milk, salt, curry paste, curry powder, garlic powder, cumin, chili powder, lime juice, and oil. Pulse until smooth. Reserve 1/2 cup of the mixture, cover and refrigerate.
  • Pour remaining sauce into a large resealable bag. Add chicken, seal bag, and refrigerate for 1-8 hours (overnight works great).
  • Preheat grill to medium heat and lightly grease the grates. Use tongs to transfer chicken from the marinade bag to the grill. Discard bag. Cook chicken 5-10 minutes on each side until cooked through. (meanwhile move on to next step)
  • While chicken is cooking, transfer the reserved portion of the sauce (the portion you refrigerated by itself) to a sauce pan. Bring to a boil over medium heat and cook 3-5 minutes, then remove from heat.
  • Once chicken is just about cooked through, brush both sides with the sauce and allow to cook 1-2 minutes longer on each side. Serve chicken hot with any extra sauce and garnish with chopped peanuts and cilantro if desired.


Serving suggestion: serve over steamed rice with steamed or roasted vegetables.
