If you’re a fan of sweet and savoury combined this is the dish for you! The sauce is made of a mixture of frozen thawed mango, because let’s face it fresh mangoes are just way too hit and miss, curry powder and a few other little bits. It’s sweet, with a bit of a kick, and delicious wrapped around some poached chicken breast chunks to make life that bit easier, or leftover roast chicken if you have any at hand.
You could also totally use chunks of fish, cod, hake or haddock would work quote well, or monk fish if you’re feeling flush!
And if you want to go veggie I’d probably stick with chickpeas as my legume of choice for this one.
I opted for quinoa just because I’m seeking out all the variety that is humanly possible write now. Routines and days are a bit monotonous for most people quite literally around the world, so having alternative meals to whip and look forward to provides a little glimmer of brightness and excitement to my day! I hope the recipes which I will keep coming do the same for you.
