Doesn’t that recipe title just make you want to cook it?  It IS as good as it sounds.  Thanks to Aggie of Aggies Kitchen who picked the recipe for all the CEimB cooks this week and where you can go to get the recipe should you want to make it.   Here we go

Most of the ingredients are pictured. Missing from the photo are the olive oil, salt, pepper, lime juice.   I substituted red wine for the red wine vinegar.  As for going by the ingredient measurements in the recipe, I must confess that I reverted back to my wicked ways and simply eye-balled it.  This week was busy and it seemed every dinner was a rush job.

Changes in methods included using my ever faithful immersion blender (love this gadget)…
The immersion blender was used instead of a blender. It is SO much easier to clean. 
The marinating of the chicken and the Quorn (meatless chicken) was done over four hours instead of onedscn0440.
Making of the Marinade:
This smelled absolutely wonderful while cooking. The onions, peppers, garlic, allspice where coming together to emit the most heavenly aromas.  We just wanted to capture it in a bottle for future use to perfume the house…okay…well maybe just the kitchen. 
The mango was delicious and almost didn’t make it into the marinade due to the tasting requirements all chefs should practice.  Oh… is that just for cooked items?
There were two different meals prepared:  Meat and Meat”less”.  
The chicken as prepared using the recipe from “The Food You Crave”

The Meat-Less version prepared using the recipe however substituting “Quorn” for chicken

On the side of our Chicken with Mango Barbecue Sauce was Sauteed Kale and Onion, Garlic and White Kidney Beans.
This recipe was wonderful.
Thanks to Aggie – great pick!

          WOW, yours looks great! We loved this sauce as well. It is just delicious, light, and springy. I have a feeling I’ll be making this A LOT over the summer. Oh, and I agree, immersion blenders are the best!

          P.S. thanks for your tip on my crumb cake post about vanilla. I’ve never done a vanilla wash before, and it would have totally solved my problem. Next time!

            Is the Quorn good? I love your side dish. We really loved this dish too! That sauce had me at mango.

              Your chicken looks great! I thought this sauce was excellent, even though I must admit — I was very skeptical at first. My only issue with the sauce was the thickness of it.

                    Funny! We had sauteed Kale on the side too. Yours turned out great. It sure was delicious!

                      My sauce had one jalepeno in it, so I made sure there wasn’t any sauce on the chicken I gave to the cats!!! Im sure they would have eaten the BBQ sauce though…they will eat anything!
