Mango Chicken Curry

One of my favourite restaurants in Toronto is Salad King. They make the most delicious mango chicken that is sweet with a mango sauce full of chunks of mango and red and green peppers and served with a steaming side of rice. Due to a problem in the building, Salad King has been closed for months and I have been craving this delicious meal so to satisfy my craving, I turned to Google. I think mango chicken as I know it must be a Salad King original but I found a decent recipe on

This dish was more of a curry (and for those of you who don't know me well, spice and I are not super close), but since I was making it I could monitor the amount of spice I put in. This was also the first time I had cooked with coconut milk and I really liked how it added a light thickness to the meal. And, with the exception of the coconut milk, I had everything else on hand.

Overall, not exactly what I set out to make, but still a really good dish that I will certainly try again. 

  • 1/2 cup chopped onion
  • 1 medium sweet red pepper, julienned
  • 1 medium green pepper, julienned
  • 2 tsp vegetable oil
  • 3 skinless, boneless chicken breasts, cut into strips
  • 1 tbsp curry powder
  • 2 tsp minced fresh ginger
  • 1 tsp minced garlic
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1/8 tsp cayenne pepper
  • 1 cup chopped, peeled mango
  • 3/4 cup coconut milk (I used lite)
  • 2 tbsp tomato paste
  • hot cooked rice

  • In a large skillet, saute onion and red and green pepper in oil for 2-4 minutes or until crisp tender
  • Add the chicken, curry, ginger, garlic, salt and cayenne. Cook and stir for 5 minutes
  • Stir in the coconut mil and tomato paste. Bring to a boil.
  • Reduce heat, cover and simmer for 10 minutes or until chicken is no longer pink.
  • Add mango and simmer for a couple more minutes. 
  • Serve over hot rice.

  1. Hey, this looks yummy! I miss Salad King SO MUCH. Did you hear they're reopening in December?

    Also, they've joined Facebook and Twitter now!

  2. Hi, I am originally from Toronto (now live in Boston). Never even heard of Salad King! But the recipe looks delicious so I am going to save it.

  3. oooh yum. I am also a HUGE salad king fan. I also heard about the re-opening.
    I always loved that on the menu it said "Pleasing Meat Dishes". I always thought that was so strange.
