Makes 4 servings


  • 3 large mangoes, peeled, pitted and the flesh cubed
  • 4 skinless, boneless chicken breast halves
  • 1/4 cup all-purpose flour
  • 2 tablespoons vegetable oil
  • 1/4 cup light rum
  • 2 tablespoons sugar


In a blender, puree two thirds of the mango cubes until smooth. Set aside.

Dredge the chicken breast halves lightly in the flour; shake off any excess.

In a large saute pan over medium-high heat, warm the oil until hot. Add the chicken breasts and saute until brown on one side, 5 to 7 minutes. Turn and saute the other side until cooked through, 5 to 7 minutes more.

While the chicken cooks, combine the remaining mango cubes, the rum and sugar in a small saucepan. Place over medium heat and stir with a wooden spoon until the sugar dissolves. Add the mango puree and cook, stirring, until the mixture is hot. Reduce the heat to low and keep warm until the chicken is ready to serve.

Arrange the chicken on a serving dish and coat with the mango sauce. Serve at once.
