Mangos are super yummy right now! This is a great recipe to incorporate them into a complete meal instead of just as a fruit snack. Below is a mango coconut chicken dish that my sister-in-law made. She added shredded coconut to the cauli rice, used all the lime juice by finishing the chicken off with the second half, and added salt and pepper to taste.

Mango Coconut Chicken


  • 1/2 Cauliflower (finely chopped)
  • 1/2 cup Almonds (roughly chopped)
  • 1/2 cup Coconut Milk
  • 1 lime
  • 1 tablespoon Ginger (grated)
  • 1 Chilli (finely chopped)
  • 1 Chicken Breast (sliced)
  • 1 Mango (diced)
  • 2 tablespoon Mint Leaves (shredded)
  • 1 teaspoon Coconut Milk
  1. Blitz the cauliflower in the food processor or high speed blender
  2. In a fry pan toast the roughly chopped almonds.  This should only take 2-3 minutes, then put them aside
  3. Toss the chicken pieces with the zest of 1 lime (grated), the ginger and chilli
  4. In a saucepan add the cauliflower rice cover with water.  Bring the cauliflower to a boil and simmer for 5 minutes.  Drain and set aside in a bowl. 
  5. Add the coconut milk and the juice of 1/2 a lime to the cauliflower, stir and then put in the refrigerator to cool  (this can be done ahead of time if you’re organised!)
  6. In a fry pan add 1 tsp of coconut oil to the pan and then add the chicken.  You want the chicken to be golden on both sides, this should take 2-3 minutes each side.  
  7. Put it all together!  First, you want a bed of the cauliflower rice, topped with the chicken, then the mango, toasted almonds and finally the mint.  

Enjoy : )
