Chicken in Mango Sauce

Over the holidays, I had purposed to roast a whole chicken and I finally got around to doing that on Christmas day. I have to say, I was impressed, the chicken was not only delicious, crispy but also juicy. Anyway that’s a recipe for another day but lemme leave you with the photo of the chicken.

Since the chicken was to feed two people there was plenty of leftover. I removed all the remaining meat from the bones then I refrigerated  Fast forward to Boxing day and I’m busy thinking of what to cook. At first I wanted to make some chicken salad but then I remembered  I’d seen a recipe for chicken in a previous issue of True Love magazine.

I grab my magazines looking for the exact issue with the recipe, it was the November issue. Lucky for me, I had all the ingredients on hand, yep *excitement*.

The recipe calls for raw chicken but I used my leftover chicken. To eat is your own…
