This mango chicken is served over coconut cauliflower rice for a quick, easy and healthy spin on take-out that is ready in 30 mins! It’s whole 30 approved and paleo friendly too!
It’s 2016 GUYS! Just. Like. That. It’s a whole new YEAR.
It boggles my mind every New Year. I mean, I go to bed and – POOF – I wake up and I have to learn to write a new date. Which, I probably won’t even fully remember to do until the NEXT New Year, only to have to re-re-learn it again.
Did you have a super fun New Year’s Eve? As I told you over a (few) cranberry cocktails, I spent it A-L-O-N-E because I am a victim of the has-a-husband-who-works-graveyard shift disease and Mr. FFF had to go out and earn the bread. Or dough? Or whatever.
Buubuubutttt, let’s not discuss the sad-dark-cloud SOML’s anymore right? Let’s move onto happy SOMLs (and we will also stop saying SOML I pinky promise) liiiiike how my takeout-loving self has been craving this crispy-crunchy chicken, coated with thiiick and spicy-sweet sauce for the last eleventy billion meals of my LIFE.
Like I just can’t stop obsessive-person thinking about the CRUNCH. The CRUNCH that is so crunch-tastic (?) that you can HEAR it as your teeth nibble town into tender chicken and your taste buds get PUNCHED in their tiny little faces with a burst of juicy-fresh mango sweetness and little pops of spicy habanero pepper. Which I discovered in some Mango Curry Homemade BBQ Sauce, is the best combination EVER.
Give me a T (say t) Give me an E (E!)
XTURE. Because I’m lazy and don’t want to waste time pretending I’m an internet-land cheerleader when we could be can’t-stop-the-poppin’ chicken into our hungry, healthier-takeout loving faces.
P.s Takeout. Like you know the one that you only usually get on Fridays and then you feel about 600.43 pounds heavier after consuming it, and you say you’ll never do it again….until next Friday happens and you forget that you ever said that? Like that. But x56.7 better for you and eaten on a MONDAY.
Because you just whipped this chicken up in 30 MINUTES like a straight up dinner BOSS.
In other exciting news: WHOLE 30. <— This recipe is approved for you brave souls who are doing THAT. Which is probs a lot of you because NEW YEARS GOALS. I will have you know that, although the willpower-force is with me typically, it is not strong enough to resist being able to eat cookie dough overnight oats. So, I CAN’T DO IT. But, if you’re doing it, I WANT TO BE YOU WHEN I GROW UP.
Also. Notice the hip and trendy Star Wars-y reference. That is me trying to live a make-believe life where I actually leave my house and know what all the cool kids are watching.
Other exciting news, the sequel: This is the first recipe in Whole 30 dinner recipe week! I’ll be bringing you warriors 2 more recipes – one on Wednesday and on Friday. Mostly because I did look in depth at the “approved food” list and it seemed like ya’ll are going to live off chicken and eggs for 30 days. Soooooo, variety. Just. For you.
I got yo’ back.
You know what I also got? Golden brown morsels of crispy chicken, wrapped in sweetsweet saucy goodness, on the brain.
