Crockpot Mango Chicken

Sue L


I had discovered a cranberry-catalina chicken from someone who had spent time down under as a missionary. Turns out that was a riff off apricot chicken, which someone from Australia I know posted online. This is just essentially a mango version of that apricot chicken. All of it is yummy. They do chicken very well down under. Serve this with plenty of sauce over rice or with mashed potatoes. I imagine you could add a bit more chicken and onion to this and still have plenty of sauce so if you increase the chicken, you should be okay without more sauce.
