I came up with this when I combined some of my favorite ingredients: sweet potatoes, chicken and peanut butter. Add mango chutney and tomatoes and you've got a fantastic busy-week recipe. —Devon Delaney, Westport, CT

We love this! The second time iI prepared it I used the mild version of the diced tomatoes and green chiles, since the chutney I use is pretty spicy.

Two words...Loved it. I can see why this was a contest winner. I had not used mango chutney (found it in the ethnic isle - Indian - around $4) before but it added so much to this dish. I served it with white rice and my family thought it was delicious.
