Spicy Mango Sweet Potato Chicken Recipe

  • 2 cups cubed peeled sweet potatoes
  • 2 tablespoons vegetable oil
  • 1 pound skinless, boneless chicken breast halves – cubed
  • 1 clove garlic, minced
  • 6 tablespoons tamari soy sauce
  • 3/4 cup water
  • 3 tablespoons honey
  • 3 tablespoons hot sauce, or to taste
  • 1 ripe mango, peeled and cubed
  • 1/4 teaspoon crushed red pepper flakes
  • 1 teaspoon cornstarch
  • 1 tablespoon warm water
  1. Place the sweet potatoes into a saucepan and fill with enough water to cover. Simmer over medium-high heat until tender, about 15 minutes. Drain and set aside.
  2. Meanwhile, heat 2 tablespoons of vegetable oil in a skillet over medium-high heat. Stir in chicken, and cook until no longer pink in the center, about 5 minutes; set aside. Stir garlic into the skillet, and cook for a few minutes, until fragrant. Pour in the tamari, 3/4 cup of water, honey, and hot sauce. Bring to a simmer, then stir in the sweet potato, chicken, mango, and red pepper flakes. Cook and stir until hot. Dissolve the cornstarch in 1 tablespoon of water, and stir into the simmering mixture; stir until thickened.
