On a visit to the Irish ambassador’s residence in Malawi I picked up this recipe from chef Blessings Tanbulagi. A simple but rather delicious way with chicken. Mango atchar is a spicy pickled condiment used in South African cuisine which has heavy influences from the large Indian population. It offers a spicy, sweet and sour flavor to a chicken dish like this- if you can’t find jars of it, try making your own with this recipe. Serve this with mashed sweet potatoes and steamed greens.

To prepare the mango atchar, place all the ingredients in a glass jar with a lid and stir until the salt and sugar is dissolved. Cover and leave to stand for 2-3 hours or up to 3 days.
Preheat the oven at 200˚C.
Place the chicken portions in a large bowl and add in the paprika and garlic. Season generously with sea salt and ground black pepper and toss the chicken pieces until evenly coated.
Heat a large deep pan over a medium high heat. Add the oil and fry the chicken pieces in batches (being careful not to overcrowd the pan) until they are golden brown on all sides. Remove to a plate lined with kitchen paper.
Add the chicken to a clean bowl and pour over the grated mango atchar, toss to coat completely and arrange the chicken pieces on a lined baking tray.
Place in the oven to roast for 40 minutes or until the chicken is cooked through and browned.
Serve warm with the mashed sweet potato, steamed greens and coriander leaves.
