CEiMB: Chicken with Mango Barbecue Sauce

So, here I am again! Presenting you the strangest combination of foods on one plate you have ever seen: Chicken with Mango Barbecue Sauce (picked by Aggie's Kitchen) combined with red cabbage and cranberries, apple sauce and mashed potatoes.

I'll admit, this was not the diner I had in mind for tonight.... I wanted to serve the chicken with a nice salad, but when I came home today I discovered that my lovely romaine lettuce had changed into a slimy mess overnight.... I guess I'm just having that kind of a week!

Instead of the seeding and dicing some jalapeno peppers I found this really cool tube in the supermarket: jalapenopepper puree. Ideal: 1 teaspoon of the puree is the same as 1 whole jalapenopepper. No more accidentally rubbing in your eyes and having them sting and tearing because you forgot to wash your hands or simply didn't wash them good enough: just a simple squirt out of the tube!! Perfect.

Also I ommitted the lime juice: since I still had a peelless lemon leftover from this weeks TWD-recipe I decided to squize it before I could bin it. Then I cut the chicken into small pieces before marinating it in the sauce, thinking it would cut back marinating and cooking time (it was already about 8 p.m. when I popped the chicken into the fridge).

This dish is absolutely amazing: a perfect combination of sweet, tangy and spicy. I will definetely make this again, so Aggie: thank you for picking this recipe! One more good part: 1 serving of the chicken with sauce is only 3 WW Points!!!

That is an odd combo, but as long as you enjoyed it, that's all that counts. I am so with you on the jalapeno paste. I only use pickled jalapenos in a jar because i have burned my eyes and face one too many times! I used lemon juice in mine as well. I am happy to hear that you enjoyed this pick.

That looks delicious and I love that pepper paste! I hate getting jalapeno into my eyes so I'll have to look for that. :)

I love the pepper paste! That would make it so much easier. This chicken was yummy.
Quinoa is just a delicious grain. I don't really know how to describe it. You prepare it the same way as rice or barley or whatever, it is just very healthy and we love it. I have to buy it at the health food store though, I can't find it at my normal grocery store.

That looks yummy. Is it selfish to say I'm happy your romaine wilted? Mashed potatoes are so much better for the soul.

Oh, that jalapeno puree - genius!!! I'll be looking for that.

Welcome to SiTS! Em
