Spicy Mango Sriracha Chicken Recipe #FlavorAdventure
Although this post is sponsored by Nature’s Touch™ Frozen Foods, all opinions are my own.
In a world loaded with quick service foods, when is the last time you actually sat and thought about where your daily food comes from? I know I am guilty of just grabbing food and not pondering the importance of it’s origin. However, I have begun to be a diligent and informed consumer when it comes to food labels.
Reading labels, and opting for organic foods has been my goal and I am slowly achieving it. You all know how much I love my smoothies so I have started using organic and pesticide-free frozen fruits from Nature’s Touch. Available at my local Shaw’s Supermarket, Nature’s Touch has all kinds of varieties like Organic Blueberries, Pesticide-Free Wild Blueberries, Pesticide-Free Mangoes, Organic Mangoes and more! Nature’s Touch also has a line of organic frozen vegetables too!
The beauty of the Nature’s Touch fruits and veggies is that they allow us to eat delicious fruits that are not typically available year round here in New England. Their fruits come from a variety of national, and international locations and are packed with the utmost care. I love how their pesticide-free and organic product lines are fully controlled to meet expectations and certification requirements. This makes them a trustworthy brand that I feel good about serving my family.
If you have not tasted Nature’s Touch Organic or Pesticide-Free Mangoes, you are missing out! They are perfectly tender, sweet, and ideal for recipes like this sweet and savory spicy mango sauce.
Since I wanted to venture away from a smoothie for today’s recipe, I decided to make a Spicy Sriracha Mango sauce for my chicken.I was inspired to “Get a Taste of Adventure” and I truly feel this sauce encompasses just that! In line with Nature’s Touch travel contest, let this recipe take you away!It is so delicious and perfect for anyone who loves to kick dinner up a notch.I can almost see myself exploring the world with every bite…ok, so maybe that is wishful thinking, but a girl can dream…..or WIN!!!!

Kick it up a notch with this slightly sweet and spicy mango sauce that complements chicken in any form.
- 2 lbs of chicken- can be wings, drumsticks, breast, etc
- 1 cup of Nature’s Touch Organic Mangoes
- 1/4 cup of sriracha *or more/less for taste
- 1/2 cup of orange juice
- 1/2 tsp of ginger
- 1/2 tsp of garlic powder
- 1/2 tsp of black pepper
- pinch of salt
- 1 tablespoon melted butter
- Prepare a baking sheet with your chicken
- Brush chicken with melted butter, and sprinkle with salt & pepper
- Bake for 60 mins or until skin is crispy and chicken is fully cooked *will vary depending on cut/type used
- In a blender, blend the remaining spice, sriracha, orange juice, and mangoes until pureed. The mixture will be thicker.
- Place blended spicy mango sauce into a stock pot and heat until just before a boil.
- Coat chicken with warm sauce and bake for a extra 5-10 mins
- Set aside extra sauce for dipping, sprinkle chicken with scallions.
These 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.
