Instant Pot Mango Chicken Curry

 

It’s been a while since I’ve shared a new Instant Pot recipe! I find myself using my Instant Pot more in the winter months, which doesn’t really make sense because cooking in the Instant Pot is so much nicer than having to turn on the hot oven during the summer!

Regardless… I am coming at you today with a summer chicken curry recipe! This Instant Pot Mango Chicken Curry is made with chicken thighs pressure cooked in a delicious, sweet mango coconut curry sauce! The mangos this time of year are so ripe I love eating them on their own, but they are also great to use in savory dishes as a natural sweetener!

How to Make Instant Pot Mango Chicken Curry 

 

You will start by making the mango coconut sauce. It’s made with just 3 ingredients that you will blend up together in a blender or food processor – ripe mangos, coconut milk and water. Blend until it turns into a smooth sauce. 

Next, sauté an onion and some garlic in the Instant Pot on the “sauté” mode. Once the onions are softened and starting to turn brown, hit “cancel” to turn off the “sauté” mode and pour in the mango coconut sauce. Now it’s time to add in the chicken thighs, make sure they are covered in the sauce. 

To season the dish and transform it into a curry, you will add curry powder, cumin, coriander and salt. Mix everything together and then seal the lid to the Instant Pot. Turn the Instant Pot on “pressure cook” high mode and set it to cook for 7 minutes. 

Once the Instant Pot beeps to indicate the cooking is done, allow it to slow release some pressure for at least 5 minutes. Before opening the lid, be sure to quick release any remaining pressure from the pot.

Remove the chicken thighs and place them on a cutting board. Slice into bite sized pieces and add them back to the pot with the curry sauce.

 

How to Serve Instant Pot Mango Chicken Curry 

 

Now the dish is ready to serve! I like to eat it served over plain white or brown rice or with a side of fresh naan. For best results top the curry with roasted, salted cashews, some fresh cilantro and some more juicy slices of mango!
