Bush cooking with Roothy: Coconut Mango Chicken

EAGER eyes may have noticed that Roothy has served up a Mango Chicken dish before on these pages.

However, this one’s a bit different and even easier to put together!

Not a fan of mangos or chicken? Perhaps you’d prefer these recipes: Scotch Eggs, Spanish Omelette, or Ginger Fish.

Before you get to camp, pick up some chicken breast fillets from the supermarket and/or butcher when you’re in town, and keep them stored in the Engel.

Cut the skinless (if so desired) chicken into cubes and throw into an oil-filled frying pan. Splash on some soy sauce to enrich the flavour and cook through until the chicken browns (ensure it’s not pink on the inside).

To get the mango flavour, the trick is to add a few tablespoons of mango chutney. Next, add a fair bit of coconut milk/cream and a hint of lime juice.

Finally, let it simmer away to get the flavours flowing through the chicken. It’s as easy as that.

Works best with a side of steamed rice! Bush cooking at its finest. Little ripper!
