Another yummy recipe from Pamela’s Paleo Life Kitchen!  Sweet.  Savory.  Oh, so tasty!

Ingredients:
1/4 cup coconut oil
1-2 lbs diced chicken thigh
1-2 lbs diced mangoes
1/2 tsp cinnamon
1/8 tsp cloves
1/8 tsp nutmeg
1/2 tsp salt
minced chives, scallions and/or cilantro
2 large zucchini cut into “zoodles”
coconut milk can be added if you like a creamy sauce (optional)
sweet or hot peppers may also be added (optional)

Melt coconut oil in a pan; add diced chicken thighs.  Brown until fully cooked.  Set aside.  

Add more coconut oil if desired, then add 1-2 lbs diced mango (I used 2 pouches of Trader Joe’s frozen organic mangoes, thawed).  Seasonings to taste: salt, cinnamon, cloves, nutmeg, chives, scallions and cilantro.  Cook on medium-high until juices form a sauce.
