Crock Pot 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 an 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.

We love an easy Crock Pot dinner recipe and this is a delicious one! The chicken is super juicy. Pouring the mildly sweet mango sauce on top adds a lovely flavor to the chicken. There's a hint of curry flavor throughout but it's not overpowering. We loved how it pairs with the mango. A simple slow cooker meal. Test Kitchen Avatar The Test Kitchen
