Yummy this dish sounds awesome. I love mango with chicken. I can imagine mango and coconut milk working well together. Those two things spell tropical to me. I love the flavors in this dish and am glad to see that there is a chili in it. I would have put one in anyway because I think a bit of bite will finish it off.

Oh my word, this is such a good dish! We made it for friends who came for dinner last night and it was very, very nice. I used chicken thighs (which I prefer to breasts) and added 2 fresh garlic cloves, crushed, but otherwise followed the recipe. Served with brown and wild rice and a lovely fresh salad from the garden. Everyone had seconds so it was definitely a winner!
