I just LOVE mangos.  There is nothing better than a super ripe fresh mango.  However, I wanted to do something that incorporated then in an entree.  So yesterday, when I made this, I had this vision of the end product, but hadn’t figured out yet how I would get there.  So I started with cooking the onions and mangos, and well that ended up getting combined with the pineapple I had because I felt those flavors would meld well together, and things just happened from there.  I guess you would call this an Indian fusion type of dish, and is completely my own concoction – no inspiration or anything.  I was very pleased with the result, and it’s a new taste that I don’t create often so it was fun to have something new!

I think the trick here is to NOT overdo the spices.  There is SO much flavor in this dish, the spices I think should be viewed more as an accent to the dish.  So play a little and explore.  But explore a little bit at a time, cause too much cumin and curry powder can really overpower a dish.  But with the right amount, yum yum!!!

Oh and this makes a good 4 servings (about 4oz. of chicken each).

This was great! I left the onion out of the salsa in hopes that my husband would eat it… he didn’t, but it was his loss because it was yummy. Thanks for the recipe!
