Mango Chicken is a superb Thai dish, often served as a main course. Today we thought, why not take the classic recipe and turn it into a fun party appetiser? After much thinking and testing, we came up with these mango chilli chicken rolls. They are so cute and tasty!
Think of them like a spring roll that uses mango as the wrapping, thinly sliced chicken as filling, and a Thai-flavoured sauce to boot.
For that perfect sweet and chilli kick, make sure you select ripe mangoes. As we'll show you below, you'll have to slice the mangoes thinly. To avoid ripping through the flesh, make sure you cut them slow and steady.
As for the sauce, we made it with ginger, Thai chillies, lemongrass, garlic and spring onions. It delivers the right balance of flavour, and it contrasts the sweetness of mango nicely. Do you have your own favourite Thai sauce? Feel free to swap it in!
These mango chilli chicken pinwheels are not just cute, but quite healthy too. There's very few added fats, mostly fruit and veggies, and chicken meat is naturally lean. Two of these rollups will give you 100 calories and only 4 grams o fats. Not bad for a party snack, right?
To help you make these without fuss, we wrote in-depth instructions below, and we shot a video as well. So take your time, follow along, and have fun!
NOTE: The default ingredients yield 18 rolls and one serving consists of 3 pieces.
