Curried Chicken with Mango Rice

I’m going to try storing recipes I’ve enjoyed making here. So I don’t have to keep printouts with scribbled modifications in a binder on a shelf.

Also, I want a record of my go-to recipes with an accurate (for me) prep time.

This one came about because of a large bag of frozen mango sitting in the freezer, leftover from the good intention of making smoothies regularly.

  1. 1 teaspoon curry powder, or to taste
  2. 1/2 teaspoon salt
  3. 1/4 teaspoon black pepper
  4. 4 skinless, boneless chicken breast halves
  5. 1 cup chicken broth
  6. 1 small can coconut milk (1/2 cup to 165ml)
  7. 1 cup white wine (sauvignon blanc gives a great bite to the dish)
  8. 1 cup basmati rice
  9. 1 tablespoon brown sugar
  10. 1 tablespoon dried parsley
  11. 1 cup diced mango (if using Costco frozen, cut the pieces in half first)
  1. Combine curry powder, 1/4 teaspoon salt, and pepper. Rub mixture into chicken breasts. Set aside.
In a large, non-stick skillet, combine
  1. chicken broth
  2. water
  3. wine
  4. rice (uncooked).
Stir in
  1. brown sugar
  2. dried parsley
  3. remaining 1/4 teaspoon salt
  4. mango
  1. Arrange chicken pieces on top of rice, and bring to a boil.
  2. Cover, reduce heat to medium-low, and simmer for 20 to 25 minutes.
  3. Remove from heat.
  4. Let stand, covered, until all liquid is absorbed, about 5 minutes.
  1. Changed wine to 1 cup, due to increasing heat to medium-low (rice was undercooked when cooked on low -- had to cook for another 20 minutes or so on medium-low with another 1/2+ cup of wine, due to rice being undercooked in original recipe).
  2. Subbed in coconut milk instead of 1/2 cup water, for creamier result.
  3. Subbed basmati rice for long-grain white rice, because basmati.
