How to make it
- Cook the rice according to the package directions.
- What if you don’t have mango chutney sitting around? Don’t worry, you can still make this delicious dish! Remember that a chutney is simply an Indian relish made with cooked or uncooked fruits or vegetables, vinegar and/or lemon juice, a sugar, and spices, and varying in spiciness from mild to hot. Keeping that in mind, make a quick inventory of your kitchen – apples, pears, cucumbers, applesauce, pineapples, or peaches are all fair game. Peel and chop your fruit (if using fresh fruit). Finely chop a little onion, throw it in a skillet with some butter and cook til soft. Add a little sugar, brown sugar, or honey. Simmer until it’s a nice caramel color. Add a bit of chopped jalapeno or canned diced chilis. Add the fruit, and a little lemon juice and/or balsamic or apple cider vinegar and simmer. You just made chutney!
- Peel and coarsely chop the onion, aCut the chicken into bite-sized chunks and add to the skillet. Raise the heat to medium-high, and cook, stirring from time to time, until the chicken is no longer pink in the center, 5 to 6 minutes. When the chicken is no longer pink in the center, reduce the heat to medium. Add the tomatoes with their juice, along with the garlic, ginger, chutney and curry powder. Stir to mix well.
- Sprinkle the spinach on top of the chicken mixture and cover the pan. Steam the spinach just until it begins to wilt, about 2 minutes. (The spinach will not be fully wilted at this point, but the heat from the sauce will finish the cooking.) Add the pine nutsRemove the skillet from the heat, and add the sour cream. Stir until the sour cream is fully incorporated into the sauce. Season lightly with black pepper. To serve, spoon the chicken mixture over hot, steamed rice.
