Caribbean Mango Chicken
Spruce up regular chicken breasts with this island-inspired recipe. The coconut milk, lemon zest and mango combine for a wonderful flavor.
Chicken and Mango
Mangoes have not always been a major cooking ingredient in Chinese cooking but with the introduction of modern fusion cuisine, it has become a popular staple. Traditionally candied walnuts would have been the garnish for this type of dish but here macadamia nuts provide a nice balance. Use a slightly under-riped mango as it will hold up its texture better when stir-frying.
Chicken with Lime, Garlic and Cashews
"Aside from the heart healthy benefits of canola oil, I love using it in a marinade because of its mild, almost neutral flavor. Canola oil allows the flavors of the lime, garlic and soy sauce to come through in this recipe. The mild taste of canola oil makes it great in a salad dressing too, when you want to taste the ingredients and not the oil."
