I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again, when the husbands away I get to play! In the kitchen that is. :)

I whipped this fun dish up with the intention of “testing” the 5 year old. I really wanted to see how he would react to a veggie filled, fruit flavored chicken based one pot dish–something that I LOVE. The husband? Not so much.

Well I’m happy to say he passed! Just look at him! (and OMG how BIG is he?!?)

I’ll let his plate speak for itself.

As you can see, the ONLY think he didn’t like was the cooked mango. He has always LOVED it raw-just watch this video from 2008–but I think it was too soft for him cooked. By far, the chicken was his favorite (he had seconds!) And he said multiple times that he “loved” the rice. Totally a WIN in mommy’s book! :)

Here’s what I did… Chicken with Mango, Carrots and Sugar Snap Peas

  • 1 tsp olive oil
  • 1 tsp sesame oil
  • 1 small onion chopped
  • 1 large portobello mushroom cap chopped
  • 12 oz of raw chicken breast cut into chunks
  • 1 cup frozen mango chunks (165g)
  • 1 inch of ginger root frozen
  • 1 tbsp soy sauce
  • 2 tbsp whole wheat flour
  • 1/2 cup of water + 1/2 cup water
  • 3-4 medium carrots cut into sticks
  • About 1 and 1/2 cup sugar snap peas

Heat the oils in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Add the onion and mushroom, sprinkle with a bit of kosher salt and cook until browning.

    This looks amazing. Can’t wait to try it.

    Just wait until Evan arrives and Ryan will seem even BIGGER!

    On another note, if you need to try WW after the baby, I think you will like Points+. I am a WW veteran since back in the exchange days. For the first time in my life I feel like this plan is liveable and is something that I can make a lifestyle. You already have that figured out with the old plan but maybe I am a slow learner? :O)

    That looks AWESOME!! I can’t wait to try it — minus the carrots, just don’t like ‘em cooked but some extra mushrooms or onions would be a good sub. :)

    I TOTALLY agree… great addition. I purposely kept it on the mild side for little guy but this can be taken to the sweet and spicy max! Mango, ginger and pepper flakes makes an awesome combo!

    geez…I should have invited myself over for dinner! This looks delicious! My dad and I used to make a TON of different stir-frys, but only when my mom wasn’t home (cause she hated the smell of the curry we’d always mixed in). I think this will be dinner tomorrow…

    I stumbled across your website & I’m impressed! Lots of variety & creativeness & it’s nice to see not so many chicken recipes. Just one tiny little question though, how come you don’t include how much salt is in each recipe with the nutritional info? It’d be great if you could.
    Thanks

  6. roni

    Honestly Tami I don’t feel comfortable providing the salt content. I rarely measure salt when I use it and just list “Kosher Salt” in the ingredients. Sorry I can’t be more of a help but thanks for the feedback!
