This Spicy Mango chicken is a great dish to make for dinner when you want something that will be ready in about an hour. It’s made with ingredients you probably have on hand, and it’s packed with flavor! If your mangoes are ripe, they’ll soften up just enough and the sweetness of the fruit balances out the heat perfectly. And if you’re not into spicy food (although why would you read this blog post if that were true?), then just leave out all or some of the sriracha.
The beauty of this tropical baked chicken recipe is that you can use fresh or frozen mangoes to make the sauce which coats the chicken drumsticks.

This spicy mango sauce has both a sweet and spicy element, which I love. You can either add more sriracha to your recipe or tone it down if you do not want the heat. I know my kids are not huge spice fans so I actually made them an extremely mild batch.
This looks so tasty! I definitely try something like this! I actually have never tried anything with Sriracha in it this looks so good I need to try it

I am in heaven! Mangoes and sriracha! What a great combination. I think that I have all of the ingredients for this too, so we can add it to the meal plan for this week.

I wonder if I can use an alternative to the mangoes since I’m allergic, but this looks amazing!
