Mango chicken curry is an incredibly delicious Indian curry recipe. The fresh or frozen mangos give the curry the perfect sweetness without adding any sugar. This easy 30-minute dinner recipe is sure to become a family favorite!



  • 1 tablespoon coconut oil
  • 1 medium onion, chopped
  • 4 garlic cloves, smashed with the side of your knife
  • 4 tablespoons ginger, chopped
  • 2 tablespoons curry powder
  • 1 teaspoon each: salt and pepper
  • 3 ripe mangos, peeled, chopped, and divided (or 3 cups frozen and thawed mango)
  • 1 14-ounce can coconut milk
  • 1 lb. boneless chicken thighs, chopped (can sub chicken breasts)
  • Minced cilantro, to serve


  1. Heat the coconut oil in a large frying pan over medium heat. Add the onion, garlic, and ginger and saute for 3 minutes, or until the onion is translucent.
  2. Transfer the onions to your blender then add the curry powder, salt, pepper, 1 cup of the ripe mangoes, and the coconut milk to the blender and blend on high until smooth.
  3. Return the sauce to the frying pan then ad the chicken and ½ cup of water and stir. Cover the pan and cook for 15 minutes, stirring a few times. Lower the heat if the sauce begins to stick to the bottom of the pan.
  4. When the chicken pieces are fully cooked, add the remaining mango to the pan and serve.


Depending on how ripe or unripe your mangoes are, this recipe may need a touch of added sweetness or a little acidity to reduce the sweetness. If needed, we recommend adding either a little honey or a little lime juice.
