Mango Chicken Vegetable Bake
The Happy Box last week included a lot of hearty summer vegetables along with a mango. I had chicken in the freezer that needed to get used up and I was inspired by the Mango Pico De Gallo on Our Best Bites. So I took to experimenting and came up with this dish.
The downfall is that it does have to be baked in the oven. Although, I would argue it could be just as good in the slow cooker. It was a light dish and paired well with rice. I loved the light summer flavor.
