Orange Mango Chicken and Weekly Menu Plan

Chinese New Year is next Monday, January 23rd., do you celebrate it? We never have, but I thought it would be fun to put together some recipes and fun ideas to share with you all. We will be sharing a few recipes early this week, and on Hoosier Homemade we will be sharing some fun Dragon Cupcakes on Tuesday, the party and decorating ideas throughout the week. So stay tuned for the Chinese New Year Celebration!

For today we have the centerpiece of a delicious buffet, an Orange Mango Chicken main dish that has a bright citrus tone by way of World Harbors Island Mango Marinade and fresh squeezed orange juice. And to add to the visual enjoyment we have garnished the dish with sliced oranges and green onion fans. I was amazed how easy it was to make the fans and how much visual appeal they added to the final dish.

To make the fans simply cut 2 or 3 green onions into 3 inch segments, then with a sharp knife split the ends in fourths and place them into ice water for 30 minutes. Drain on a paper towel prior to using as garnish.
