A collection of Rod's favorite recipes

Chicken with Mango and GingerI went to Freddie’s (Fred Meyer grocery, for those not in the Northwest US) and on a whim purchased chicken, ginger and mango just because I thought they would go well together. But I don’t cook without a recipe (at my family’s request), so I googled “chicken mango ginger” and this recipe was at the top of the list! And it’s delicious! The chicken is sooo tender! I used Pablano peppers instead of Jalapeno this time… next time I might try the Jalapeno, but the Pablano was really good!

Prep time –> 15 minutes. Total time –> 35 minutes. Serves 4.


  • 1 large mango, peeled, pitted, and cut into 1/4-inch wedges
  • 8 chicken cutlets (about 1 3/4 pounds total)
  • 1 piece fresh ginger (1 inch), peeled and cut into matchsticks
  • 1/3 cup fresh cilantro leaves
  • 1 medium jalapeno, thinly sliced
  • Coarse salt and ground pepper
  • 2 tablespoons plus 2 teaspoons extra-virgin olive oil
  • Lime wedges, for serving


Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Place mango wedges in center of four 18-inch-long pieces of parchment. Top with chicken, ginger, cilantro, and jalapeno. Season with salt and pepper and drizzle each with 2 teaspoons oil. Fold parchment into a twist or envelope shape.

Place packets on a rimmed baking sheet and bake until packets are puffed up and chicken is cooked through, 18 to 20 minutes. Serve with lime wedges.
