Sad to report that this was a pretty disappointing meal, for a few reasons.
1. It did not taste nearly as unique as it sounded. I was expecting something with more of a flavor profile (more spice, more tang, more anything!), but it was surprisingly “bland” for being a “mango chili” dish. It reminded me of TJ’s other chicken tempura dishes, especially the frozen orange chicken (although I prefer that one).
2. The mangos didn’t taste very good in this. I enjoy mangos, including in dishes like this with meat (ie: mango chutney and chicken), but these were a bit too mushy for my taste.

I really liked this dish! The chicken itself tasted the same as TJ’s tempura sweet & sour chicken (without the sauce) — almost like chicken nuggets, really tasty (though probably not very healthy). I loved the sauce, too — it had a perfect amount of sweetness for my taste.
The only thing I didn’t love was the mango pieces — I think if it was made with fresh mangoes it would be great, but the consistency/temperature of the mangos after being heated from frozen didn’t match my expectations. Still, I would eat this again overall because the chicken/sauce were so good.
