I recently visited Nigeria and it was Mango season. If you have ever had the pleasure of plucking, washing and eating ripe mangoes from the tree, you have experienced a gastronomic bliss. We had two fruiting trees in the orchard (Insert) and on several occasions, I was able to eat freshly plucked mangoes. The experience I had inspired this chicken recipe, I hope you enjoy.

Mango Trees


2 semi ripe Mangoes

Juice of 1 fresh lime

1 table spoon olive oil

6 pieces skinned Chicken Thighs (Cubed)

1/2 teaspoon each ( pepper,thyme and salt)

1 cube maggi

Other: Skewers


Thoroughly combine all of the ingredients. Set in the fridge to marinate for up to 4 hours or overnight.

Preheat the oven to 375 degrees

One skewer at time, arrange on the chicken and mango. ( I wrapped the skewer tips with some  aluminum foil to prevent burning).  Line a tray with some foil paper or cooking parchment, set the chicken skewers on the tray.

Bake the chicken  for 25-30mins.


PS: This skewers will also work on the Grill.
