Crispy Chicken with Mango Salad

I've eaten a Thai dish very similar to this back in Malaysia but the originally dish uses the whole fish. Since I don't have fish I just used chicken breast for this. The key to this dish is the mango salad. The mango should firm and not overly ripe. This dish tasted really good as the crunchiness of the chicken compliments really well with the sweet and sour mango salad.

Ingredietns :

2 chicken breast - cut to bite size pieces
1 tbsp of soy sauce
1/4 tsp of garlic powder
1 egg white
3 tbsp of cornflour
salt and pepper to taste

Mango Salad

1 firm mango - cut into strip
1 carrot - cut into thin strip
1 red chili
1 kafir lime leaf (finely chopped)
2 tbsp of sugar
1/4 cup of vinegar
2 sprigs cilantro - roughly chopped
some toasted sesame seeds (for garnish)

1) Marinate chicken with soy sauce, garlic powder, salt, pepper and set it aside to marinate for an hour.
2) Mix all the salad ingredients together except for sesame seeds and let in pickle in the refrigerator.
2) Heat up some oil for frying. Mix in egg white to the chicken and then stir in cornflour. Mix well and deep fry until golden brown. Drain the oil on paper towel.
3) Serve chicken and top it with mango salad. Garnish wth some sesame seeds.

I like the sound of this, I shall cook it as soon as I can! It's difficult to find great mangoes here though. The best I ever had was on a beach on Koh Samui ...(sigh)...

Christelle, you are right. The best mango is still the one from Thailand :)

Yatie, thank you. I got the tart mould from Malaysia. By the way jadi tak you balik Malaysia? I dah beli ticket for January :)

Yasunbuka, I don't think it will be good by the time it reach you but by any chance you are in US I will cook it for you :)

Cookingcourtney, do let me know how yours turn out.

Skinnymum, hope you like this recipe.

LCOM, thank you :)

Familyfirst, I didn't add fresh garlic because it burn easily when you fry your chicken but if you like that you can add to it :)

Lesley, the salad smell so good especially with the lime leaf.

Jun, thank you. Kenapa pulak nak tunggu sampai lepas puasa? Tak masak ke this few days?

Rita, ha ha..i like everything crispy too.
