Mango, Chicken and Rice Bowls with Edamame and Spicy Peanut Sauce

Is there anything more delicious than a super ripe juicy mango? I mean, they are just so dang good! Sometimes it’s hard for me to find ripe mangoes. So what I usually do is let is ripen for about a week after I buy it and then it’s usually nice and juicy and delicious. You can ripen the mangoes on the counter or in the fridge. It just takes a little bit longer in the fridge.

I like to add grilled chicken to my bowls for some extra protein but you can leave it out if you want to go veg. This peanut sauce is SO good! You are going to want to drink it. You can make it spicier if you want by adding more garlic chili sauce. Alternatively, you can leave it out if you hate spice but I suggest adding a little for the flavor it imparts.
