Coconut Mango Chicken

This sauce is crack.

Seriously. You will not be able to stop eating this coconut mango chicken until you lick every drop out of the pan. It’s the perfect mix of spicy, sweet, and tangy.  It’s exactly what I needed.

Coconut Mango Chicken

Work was tough today.  It’s finals week.  I’ve never never needed a vacation so badly.

Tonight I need a big glass of wine and something tropical and delicious in under 30 minutes.  My trick is using these brown rice cups. They only take one minute in the microwave.  SUCH a life saver.FullSizeRender_1

This coconut milk sauce makes everything feel creamy and decadent while still secretly being healthy.  Add a little mango and jalapeño and I might as well be on an island somewhere!

This dinner is so quick.  Just sauté some peppers and chicken.  Next, make the sauce in a blender….
