Spicy Mango Chicken Stir Fry

Stir fry is one of my all time favorite dishes.  There’s something about crisp, fresh veggies and a quick cooking method that makes me a happy girl.  This stir fry recipe is especially rockin’.  As Mary puts it, “The sweet and spicy combo kicks some major ass while the gooey texture of the fresh mango gives this dish a really great flavor and thickness.”

I whole-heartedly agree.

Fresh mangoes really make this dish.  I absolutely love when mangoes are in season (and on sale!).  I buy boat loads of them, slice and dice them and freeze them to use later on.  Easy peasey and always on hand.

Kudos to Mary Makes Dinner for this recipe idea.
