Welcome to Day 4 of Greek Week and my first savory recipe using Chobani yogurt. As I've mentioned in the previous Greek Week posts, I used my Chobani giveaway win to challenge myself to create new recipes that use yogurt as a key ingredient. In addition to this challenge, I was also determined to find an easy and delicious dinner recipe that utilized one of Chobani's amazing products.
Cue this Mango Yogurt Chicken. If you are a fan of having fruit and chicken in a single dish, then you must give this recipe a try. Similar to the ever so popular Orange Chicken, this recipe incorporates sweet and savory flavors. The fresh mango and Chobani Mango Greek Yogurt add a sweet tang to the savory chicken and sauteed vegetables. Each bite is filled with different flavors and textures. And to top it all off, this recipe is great for you. Another winner for the (recipe) books!
Serve this chicken recipe over rice or pasta, or have a side salad if you want to keep things low-carb and figure friendly. Also, try making this recipe with different flavors of yogurt. Pineapple yogurt, fresh pineapple, and pork is on my list of variations to try next!
Mango Yogurt Chicken (adapted from Allrecipes)
4 boneless, skinless chicken breasts or 8 boneless, skinless chicken tenders
1 onion, diced
1 bell pepper, gutted and sliced
3 tsp minced garlic
1 fresh mango, peeled and diced
3/4 cup Chobani Mango Greek Yogurt
1/4 cup milk (I used skim milk)
1 Tbsp all-purpose flour
salt and pepper to taste
Heat a large skillet over medium heat. Spray with cooking spray. Add onion and bell pepper; saute for 3-4 minutes, or until tender. Add garlic and mango, and cook for about 5 minutes, or until mango is tender. Season with salt and pepper. In a small bowl, mix yogurt, milk, and flour together; add yogurt mixture to sauteed mango and peppers. Cook for about 4-5 minutes, or until mixture begins to boil and thicken.
Season chicken with salt and pepper. Grill or bake the chicken until cooked through. Serve mango yogurt sauce over cooked chicken.
