We’ve long been fans of the sweet love between peppers and mango. Now Byron Bay Chilli Co makes it a threesome with the addition of coconut into the mix, courtesy of their Fiery Coconut Chilli Sauce.

Coconut Mango Chicken Breast Ingredients

  • 4 chicken breast fillets
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • salt and pepper
  • 2 tablespoons BBCC Heavenly Habanero Chilli Sauce
  • 2 tablespoons BBCC Fiery Coconut Chilli Sauce
  • 1/2 cup Greek style yogurt
  • 1/4 cup coarsely chopped coriander
  • ripe mango slices

Instructions

  1. Brown the chicken breast fillets in hot oil on both sides. Season them with salt and pepper.
  2. Mix together the chilli sauces and yogurt. Turn the heat to low and pour the yogurt mixture over the chicken. Cover with a lid and cook gently for 15 minutes.

Almond Rice Pilaf Ingredients

  • 2 cups long grain white rice
  • 2 tablespoons vegetable oil
  • 1/2 large onion, chopped
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 4 cups vegetable or chicken stock
  • 1/4 cup currants and/or finely chopped dried apricots
  • 1/4 cup toasted slivered almonds

Instructions

  1. Saute the rice and onion together in hot oil until golden. Add the garlic and stir briefly.
  2. Pour over broth, turn heat to low, and cover with lid. Steam for 15 minutes or until all liquid has been absorbed.
  3. Stir in the dried fruit and nuts. Replace the lid and allow to sit 2 minutes.
  4. To mould rice, scoop with a plastic measuring cup and press in firmly with the back of a spoon. Turn out rice onto each plate. Place a chicken fillet on the side, drizzle with yogurt sauce and sprinkle with coriander.
  5. Serve ripe mango slices on the side.
