Sweet and spicy combination of mangoes, golden raisins, vinegar and exotic spices. This chunky chutney is a delicious condiment for grilled chicken, pork chops or seafood. I first tried mango chutney about a year ago on a piece of grilled chicken and it was incredible. After buying a few jars at the grocery store, I figured it was time to make my own! 😀
This chutney is not only great on grilled meats, you can also serve it as an appetizer, dip or spread served with naan, crackers or baguette slices. One of my favorite ways to serve it is on piece of baguette with a slice of brie and a dollop of mango chutney on top. Place in a 350 degree oven for 10 minutes and you have a delicious appetizer.
There are so many delicious ways to enjoy chutney..what’s your favorite way? 🙂
