Slow Cooker Mango Chicken Recipe

slow cooker mango chicken 2 Slow Cooker Mango Chicken Recipe

Colorful. I love colorful food.

Tasteful. I love tasteful food. (Who doesn’t right?!)

What you see above is what came straight out of the slow cooker. No styling, no color editing…what you see is what you get. I think this is slow cooker food at its finest!

Oh…and the #2 reason that I love slow cooking…it’s usually “dump and run.” This is one such recipe…and I love that it literally is no fuss. No need to peak, stir, vent…nothing.

And the #1 reason…I can go about my afternoon and deal with the “attitudes of witching hour” without having to fuss with dinner prep.

But really they should be a tie. #1 and #2 reasons are equally important for this busy mama!

    Making this now and smells great! I didn’t have time for the slow cooker so I am doing it cacciatore-style: sauté zucchini and onion, then brown chicken, then mix remaining ingredients. Top chicken with veggies and pour tomato-mango sauce over all; simmer covered for 35 minutes or so till chicken is done. Serving with rice.

    Any substitutes for red wine vinegar? I do not have any…

    • Marie A says:

      My family can’t have vinegar, we usually use fresh lemon juice. I think I am young to try this with lime juice, though.

  13. Debbie says:

    Also I am starting this a little later than I wanted… Can I cook on high? And for how long?

    My Wife is (very) allergic to zucchini (and all summer squash). What would make a good substitution? How about some small red potatoes cut up?

    • Erin says:

      Small potatoes would be great…or sweet potato chunks would complement the sweetness of the mango too! Hope you enjoy it!


  19. Shannon Sutter says:

    Can I freeze this recipe with the mangos included or should I freeze everything but the mangos and add them when I’m ready to cook it?

    • Erin says:

      Yes, you can free the mangoes with the chicken. I do that regularly when I leave slow cooker packs for my husband when I’m traveling for work!


      • Lisa says:

        I am interested in doing the freezer meals, as you mention. Do you just put all ingredients, including the raw chicken into a large zip-lock and freeze?

  20. Kim says:

    This looks so good! How about adding a can of black beans? Just to stretch it a bit further…

    I’m thinking about making my own but I’m not sure where to start.
