A few years ago, I had some mango puree sitting in the fridge after the mango lassi I made yesterday. Then there were some chicken drummettes. Why not some Mango Chicken? Sounds great, Genius! After making a quick sauce and cooking the chicken, I gave it a try, and guess what??? It was absolutely tasty, and I gave a pat on my shoulder for coming up with this amazing recipe(I am not vain, please read through). Took another bite...and it was DEJA VU. I've met this chicken before...
It was almost 10 years ago when I was visiting my home town. We went out to a nice place for dinner, and this was on the appetizer menu. Of course, I had to have it. Small little drummettes came to our table, steaming hot, topped with almonds and drenched in sauce. It did not disappoint me, was yummy, sticky fingers and all.
The foodie in me had to talk to the chef. After praising his creation, I almost begged him for the ingredients that went into it. He vaguely gave me some details. I rushed home and wrote it in my Burgundy diary.
Guess that I subconsciously kept looking at that scribble as I flipped through the book for years. The ingredients stuck to me, and I used a bit of this and a bit of that. I've made this chicken a few time times before,so here is the chicken for you. You'll have to try it to know how damn good it is.
