What to do with hot mango chutney?

CaitRC Jun 24, 2008 09:53 AM

Bought some hot mango chutney during a recent trip to the Caribbean, but I have no idea what to do with it. Any recipe suggestions or dishes I should try? Thanks!

    I have an Easy, Creamy Curry chicken dish I use. I got it a long time ago and don't know the source, but I will paraphase it anyway.

    2 boneless, skinless, chicken breasts, each cut into thirds.
    1 cup of milk
    1/3 cup Mango chutney (I use Trader Joe's)
    1 tsp. cumin
    2 tsp(s) Madras Curry powder
    1/2 tsp. tumeric
    1 T. whole grain mustard

    In a large skillet, brown chicken in a couple of Tablespoons of olive oil. In the meantime, pour the milk into a bowl and mix in all remaining ingredients. Stir well. After chicken is browned on each side, pour milk mixture into skillet, scrape up browned bits and turn to a low simmer. Simmer on low for 20 minutes. Serve over rice.

    I get asked for this recipe every time I serve it!

      yeah its perfect with chicken and sometimes fish. serve it just as it is or mix it with mayo (or yoghurt, creme fraiche, sour cream, cream cheese) and maybe some curry, s&p, altho you bought hot mango chutney so taste it and see if u need curry or not. It works well in a warm sauce/stew that is cream/ creme fraiche based havn't tried it with coconut milk but i guess it works too..

      the mayo mix is great on chicken/turkey burgers

            Looks like I'm the only whose first thought was "mmm... vanilla ice cream w/ chutney!"

              I put a dollop in my chix or lamb curry. Also, put some in Rogan Josh. Whenever I get the frozen meals at Trader Joe's (i.e. Chicken Vindaloo) I always eat it w/ a spoonful of hut mango chutney (Major Grey's).

                  Goes beautifully with roasted chicken. Serve a little bowl on the table and let folks dip out a spoon or two to their plate. Then add a bit to a forkful of food. Using chutneys and such in this way leads to some great flavor-combo discoveries.

                        Mix it into both of the above - equal parts cream cheese and shredded cheddar, plus some curry powder. Makes an incredible spread.

                        I use mango chutney as a base for both a curried chicken salad and a sweet-and-white potato salad (add to yogurt and some curry powder to make the dressing).

                          Nice with shrimp, a "meaty" fish, bhaji (as was recommended to me on this board), pork ...
