Mango Chicken Featuring Mom and Me Jams {Mango Jam}

Ever since I heard about the new West Boca Raton Green Market, I’ve made it there almost every week to seek out delicious foodie finds. I spotted Katrina, the owner of Mom and Me Jams with her wide selection of colorful and homemade jams. Chatting with Katrina about the jams, I learned that everything is tripled sterilized and made fresh on a weekly basis – take that Welch’s grape! She had me at homemade, preservative free, family recipe. Now that’s made with love and doesn’t food made that way taste so much better!

I sampled a few flavors by the spoon and was thrilled by the idea of mango jam, who would have thought to make this? I’m so glad she did!

I could have put in on toast or oatmeal, but I craved something savory for this sweet delight. A sweet and savory dish was born.

Mango Chicken and Sweet Potatoes over Spinach

This one pan dish pleases a crowd. I made it for my mother-in-law and her mother when they came into town then I made it again tonight. It’s delicious and satisfying, I even took my mother-in-law to the green market last Sunday and she picked up a jar of her own. Now she can recreate this back home in her kitchen too.
