Mango Chutney Chicken

This Mango Chutney Chicken recipe is one I found on the Daring Gourmet website (if you don’t already know her, do visit her site!). I will be adding a bit of Nigerian Flavour to it. 🙂

Sweet and savory is a winner with most people and this recipe definitely ticks every single box! So no much chatter today, let’s get cooking:

You will need

  • 8 pieces of chicken drumsticks
  • 4 tablespoons mango chutney
  • 1 tbs of Suya Spice – (optional)
  • Juice of one lemon
  • 2 tablespoons unsalted butter, softened
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • ¼ teaspoon dried thyme
  • ¼ teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
  • ¼ teaspoon paprika


  1. Pre-heat the oven to 180 degrees celsius
  2. Score the chicken and squeeze lemon juice over the chicken and set aside to rest in the fridge. Lemon juice helps to pre-digest the meat aiding the infusion of flavours.
  3. IMG_2499 In a small bowl, all remaining ingredients and stir to thoroughly combine.
  4. IMG_2507Coat the chicken with the mix and place the drumsticks in an ovenproof dish and bake for 25 minutes.
  5. IMG_2509Take the chicken out and spread the remaining sauce over the pieces and bake for another 30 minutes or until chicken is well cooked and juices run clear.
  6. To get a crispier feel, you can place under the grill till skin turns become crisp.
  7. This chicken is best served and eaten immediately. 🙂

I had mine with some salad (Spinach, Rockets, grated carrots and some pearl barley)
