Mango Chicken Curry Recipe with Thai-Mex Fusion

This easy mango chicken curry stands out from other curry recipes with its delightful blend of Mexican and Thai flavors. The creamy coconut milk sauce, combined with the sweetness of ripe mangoes and a little heat from the jalapeño and chili powder, creates a unique taste.

Perfect for a quick weeknight dinner, this easy mango chicken curry can be served with cauliflower rice for a healthier meal or paired with white rice (I recommend basmati rice or jasmine rice) for a more traditional option.

The juicy chicken thighs, tender broccoli, and vibrant bell peppers ensure every bite is packed with flavor and texture. Enjoy this fusion meal that will surely become one of the favorite things on your dinner table. 

Next time you're looking for a quick and tasty dinner, this easy mango chicken curry will be your go-to choice.

Ingredients

  • 6 chicken thighs (skinless, boneless; I prefer thighs over chicken breasts for their juiciness and flavor in this mango curry recipe)
  • 1 cup bell peppers (sliced, I use frozen three pepper blend from Whole Foods)
  • 2 cups broccoli (florets)
  • cilantro (chopped, for garnish)
  • lime juice (start with 1 Tablespoon, add more to taste)
  • coconut sugar (or brown sugar, start with 1 Tablespoon, add more to taste)
  • Sauce

  • 1 can coconut milk (I use Thai Kitchen full fat coconut milk)
  • 1 cup salsa verde (mild)
  • 1 mango (ripe, peeled, pitted, I use yellow mango)
  • 1 jalapeno pepper (seeded, you can leave some seeds for a spicy kick)
  • 1 teaspoon ground cumin
  • 1 teaspoon chili powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon turmeric
  • 1/4 teaspoon red pepper flakes

Notes

To store delicious curry leftovers, cool to room temperature and transfer the cooled curry into an airtight container. Keep it in the refrigerator for up to 3-4 days.

If you have difficulty finding salsa verde, you can make it at home by blending tomatillos, jalapeños, cilantro, garlic, and lime juice.

Instructions

1. Add all sauce ingredients (creamy coconut milk, salsa verde, mango chunks, jalapeño, ground cumin, chili powder, garlic powder, turmeric, and red pepper flakes) to a blender (or a food processor) and blend until smooth.

3. Heat oil in a large sauté pan over medium-high heat. Add the chicken pieces and cook until no longer pink.

4. Add the bell peppers and broccoli to the pan, and then pour in the blended mango sauce. Bring the mixture to a boil, then reduce to low heat and simmer for about 5 minutes, or until the curry sauce slightly thickens and the broccoli reaches your desired level of crisp-tenderness.
