Indian-spiced chicken with mango relish

This was my first attempt at cooking any Indian-type food – I’m not actually sure how authentic this was – but what I do know is that it was delicious.   I was inspired to try Indian flavors after watching The Next Food Network Star – where Aarti (who won!) cooked Indian food made simple.    Well, this was a real simple recipe – so it is perfect to get a taste of curry flavors without spending lots of time and using complicated ingredients.  
The curry flavored chicken was perfectly spiced and the mango-mint relish really helped balance the spicyness of the chicken.   I served this with some jasmine rice and homemade naan.  So delish – enjoy! 
I hope to try many more Indian dishes to share with you soon. :)


  • 1 garlic clove, minced
  • 2 tsp. grated fresh ginger
  • 2 tsp. curry powder
  • 2 tsp. fresh lime juice (from 1/2 a lime)
  • 1/2 a jalapeno, seeded and minced
  • 1/4 cup plain yogurt
  • 1 Tbsp. vegetable oil
  • salt and pepper
  • 2 boneless, skinless chicken breasts
  • 1 mango, peeled, pitted and diced
  • 1 Tbsp. fresh mint, chopped


1. Combine garlic, 1 1/2 tsp. ginger, curry powder, 1 tsp. lime juice, 1/4 jalapeno, yogurt and oil in a large bow and season with salt and pepper.

2. Marinate chicken in curry-yogurt mixture for 15-30 minutes.

3. Grill chicken over a medium-high fire until lightly charred and the thickest part registers 160 degrees, about 8 minutes per side.

4. Meanwhile, combine mango and mint with remaining ginger, jalapeno and lime juice in a small bowl.  Season with salt and pepper.  Serve with chicken and rice.
