Many people complain that I'm such a fussy eater – I always claim it's simple.. nothing from the sea and no cheese. But then they say, so what do you eat? Tonight Matthew, I'm going to make mango chicken.
Most of my meals are based around whatever happens to be on the point of mouldiness in the fridge. Tonight, this happened to be a mango and 3 carrots. For those that want to follow along at home…
Fry a bit of onion until it's soft (not until it's almost black like I did today), then add diced chicken breast. (You hardly need any oil at all.. sorry olive-guzzling Spanish people!) fry gently till it's almost brown, add a squeeze of lemon juice (oh yeah, had some lemons left over from Saturday's cocktiail party!), and then diced mango. Keep frying till the mango's a tiny bit squidgy. A splash of orange juice helped make it a tad more liquidy. Ok, then I got bored and just left all that in the fridge.
Later on, boil some rice and add some carrots and sweetcorn. Fry diced green pepper slowly, until it's a bit soft. Then bring the chicken out of the fridge and dump it in the frying pan. Heat it all up again, adding a bit of white wine (come on, I know you have all these things in student fridges!) to keep it juicy.
Voila. Dinner. Truth is, it didn't have quite as much flavour as I was expecting, so all suggestions welcome!
