Moa Feleiva i le Mago - Mango Chicken

Sometimes simple is best. 


This recipe by Tepora Porter and Quini Luau was a finalist in a Healthy and Tasty Samoan Recipe Competition and even though it didn't win, I love its simplicity. You can access the original recipe here (page 22), or you can just follow along with me...


...in Samoan.


Hehehe.


Moa Feleiva i le Mago
(serves 4-6)


500 kalama alaga moa sae le pa'u, tipitipi
Falaoa mata e nini ai fasimoa
Tama'i 'ini o le masima ma le pepa
2 mago
Tama'i 'ini o le pauta polo feu
1 sipuni 'ai suau'u
Sua o se tipolo meamata (po'o se tipolo)


Palu faatasi le falaoa mata, pepa ma le masima. Faatofu moa i le paluga.


Salu sina suau'u la'ititi i se apa falai. Tu'u iai fasimoa ma kuka. (The original recipe has some business about putting baking paper on oil in the frypan, but that's too finicky for me.)


Taisi se mago mai luga i lalo. Tipi leisi mago, palu faamalu, faaopoopo iai le sua o le tipolo meamata ma se 'ini o le polo feu. 


Tu'u fasimoa ua vela i le faapaluga mago mo nai minute. 


Laulau ae tu'u ai le mago taisi i luga. 


The sweet mango really complements the chicken. However, I squeezed in a lot more lemon juice than the recipe called for and also increased the chilli powder. Sweet, sour and spicy. What more could you want?


Again, check out the original recipe for instructions in English and more Samoan-inspired healthy dishes.
