Sweet & Spicy Mango Chicken Calypso Wraps + Video

You know how some people have a signature color, hairstyle, look…lipstick? I think that’s cool and all but people should also have a signature recipe.  A recipe that is unequivocally you. The ingredients, flavors, colors, smells should resonate on a personal, cultural and of course a tasty level.

So seven years ago, I set out to create that recipe. Don’t get me wrong, I create new recipes all the time but this is definitely me. It’s called Sweet and Spicy Mango Chicken Calypso Wraps.

It’s sweet, has a little bit of heat and hints of exotic and Caribbean flavors. One taste and you’ll know why I like it. Why am I sharing this recipe now? Well seven years ago there was no “The Domestic Life Stylist”.  Secondly, I think that I can trust you.

I trust that you will slow down long enough to savor the flavors in this chicken mango wrap and not take them for granted. And then, when you’ve eaten the last tasty bite, I trust that you’ll come back to the blog and leave me a comment letting me what you think.

See that’s not too much to ask is it? I promise that you’ll make this time and time again. Well, once you can get your hands on fresh mangoes. Oh and just a heads up, things can get really messy and sticky when cooking the chicken in this dish. So use a non-stick grill pan that you’re not crazy about and clean up right after.

And since we are talking about mangoes, don’t miss my 30 second hack video on how to cut a mango on YouTube.

    Very nice! Looks delicious. Alas, I’m not a consistently good cook, even if I had the time.
    One suggestion: You could highlight the fact that this dish is gluten free and (it seems) also dairy free. A lot of people are looking for that combination.

      I promise you it’s easy Jay and you’re right…both gluten and dairy free. Actually, a few recipes here fall into that category. So if you fall into either category…”party on”. I really hope you try this one though. 🙂
