RECIPE...Mango Jerk Chicken with Rice & Peas

We love our Limited Edition Alphonso Mango Preserve but surprisingly it isn't just for sweet dishes.  You can also use it in savoury dishes too to add a fruity sweetness. We have a delicious recipe to share with you for when you fancy making something a little different for dinner this summer.


Mango Jerk Chicken with Rice & Peas

The flavour combination of Jerk chicken with mango works really well and is seen in many recipes. The sweetness of the mango works really well with jerk seasoning, and this is true in this recipe as well.

Ingredients (serves two)

  • 2 chicken breasts, cut into strips

  • Tablespoon olive oil

  • Tablespoon jerk seasoning

  • 2 tablespoons Alphonso Mango Preserve

  • 100g basmati rice

  • Half a tin of coconut milk

  • 1 garlic clove, minced

  • Half teaspoon all spice

  • 2 spring onions

  • Half a tin of kidney beans

  • Chives for garnish (optional)


  1. Preheat the oven to 180°C.

  2. Mix the olive oil and jerk seasoning in a bowl then add the chicken and stir until it is well coated in the mixture.

  3. Lay it out on a baking tray and bake for 15 minutes.

  4. Remove from the oven and spoon over the mango preserve, then return to the oven for a further five minutes or until the chicken is cooked through.

  5. While the chicken is in the oven make the rice.

  6. Rinse the rice under cold running water and tip into a pan along with all the remaining ingredients except the kidney beans and chives.

  7. Season and add 150 ml cold water and set over a high heat. Once it boils, turn it down to a medium heat, cover and cook for 10 minutes.

  8. Add the kidney beans, cover and set aside for 5 minutes until all the liquid has been absorbed. Garnish with chives and serve with the chicken.

Mango Recipe Ideas

Whether you want something simple to use your mango preserve in, or you’re up for making a recipe, we have some delicious ideas for how to use our Alphonso Mango Preserve this summer.

Alphonso Mango Preserve, Fruit & Greek Yoghurt

I love this summertime breakfast idea. I chop up some of my favourite seasonal fruit, including nectarines, strawberries, cherries and raspberries, and then serve with thick greek yoghurt and top with a generous dollop of Alphonso Mango Preserve. For some crunch, I add in some granola.


Coconut & Alphonso Mango Preserve Smoothie

Blend coconut milk (such as Alpro) with banana and Alphonso Mango Preserve. For an extra creamy smoothie add in some coconut milk yoghurt too. This is vegan too, so perfect for anyone on a dairy free diet.

Meringue Tray Bake

This is such a delicious and simple dessert to make this summer and impress your friends and family.

Make a basic meringue mix by whisking 3 large egg whites to soft peaks, then gradually add 175g caster sugar, 1 tablespoon at a time, until stiff peaks are formed. Spoon into a lined swiss roll size tin and level carefully. Bake in a pre-heated oven at 130 fan for approximately 30 minutes.

Once cooled, lightly whip 150ml double cream and then stir in 150g greek yoghurt, a couple of tablespoons of Alphonso Mango Preserve and half a punnet of raspberries. Top with the remaining punnet of raspberries and generous drizzles of Alphonso Mango Preserve.

I hope this gives you some mouthwatering ideas for how to use your Alphonso Mango Preserve this summer, which is available to buy online here.

Alphonso Mango Preserve is Back!!!

The eagerly awaited Limited Edition Alphonso Mango Preserve is finally back in our range! This is a firm summer favourite and we are in mango heaven to have it in stock again.


The alphonso mango is the king of mangoes, where is it is beautifully sweet and aromatic and the tastiest variety of mango around. From India, these mangoes are in season for just 6 weeks of the year and one taste will take you to a tropical paradise.


The Alphonso Mango Preserve is probably our most difficult product to make, from sourcing directly from India in a short window when they are in season, to long and slow preparation time to get as much of the delicious mango flesh into the preserve as possible. But we’d like to think that it is all worth it in the end!

So what should you eat Alphonso Mango Preserve with? Well we think its delicious dolloped onto a really thick Greek yoghurt, or smothered over ice cream. Alternatively it makes a great summery breakfast teamed with granola and yoghurt.

Alphonso Mango Preserve is available to order online now, so get your taste of summer straight away!
