Sticky Mango Chicken


The spinach and mango salad that accompanies this dish, is one of my favourite ever salads. I love the combination of baby spinach, fresh mango and dried cranberries.  If I am making it for adults or older children, I also like to add toasted pine nuts.

  • I wanted to try this but knew that my husband (if I told him what I was planning) would be unhappy from the start, as he believes that mains should be savoury, not sweet tasting. His response was amazing - he said that he honestly, really enjoyed it. Absolute winner, well done AK and team!
