- 450g chicken breasts, cut into strips
- 1 tbsp flour
- 1 mango, peeled
- 1 capsicum, sliced
- 1 red onion, chopped
- 2 cloves garlic, minced
- 1 small chili pepper, deseeded and chopped

For the Sauce:
- 3 tbsp rice vinegar
- 3 tbsp water

Cut the chicken into thin strips and season with salt and pepper, then coat in the flour.
Peel the mango and cut the flesh into strips. Cut the peppers into strips, peel the onion and cut into half rings.
Halve the chili pepper lengthwise, remove the seeds, then finely chop. Peel and grate the ginger.
Prepare the sauce by mixing all the sauce ingredients in a bowl.
In a wok or large pan heat 1 tbsp of coconut oil, and stir fry the vegetables (peppers, onions, chili pepper, garlic and ginger) over high heat for about 3 minutes. Add the mango and mix, cooking for another 2 minutes, then remove everything and set aside.
