It may be the kid in me, but I do love chicken tenders. Simple, portable and packed with flavor. A bite-size reminder of Sunday dinner at grandma’s, with the added fun of a variety of ways you can serve with dipping sauces, salads or, in this case, a mango rainbow slaw.

The lovely Ayesha Curry is sharing her recipe for Oven Baked Chicken Tenders with Mango Rainbow Slaw to add some kick to your summer. This recipe features the nutritious Tommy Atkins mango. Originally from Florida, this mango is now the most widely grown commercial variety coming into the United States, according to the National Mango Board.

You’ll recognize the Tommy Atkins by its dark-red blush, not quite “Jungle Red,” but close, with green and orange-yellow accents. Did you know that mangoes are related to pistachios and cashews?

Ayesha Curry is partnering with the National Mango Board to provide recipes using this popular fruit. The Oven Baked Chicken Tenders with Mango Rainbow Salsa is the second of her recipes we’ve shared. You can find her recipe for Jerk Rubbed Chicken Skewers with Mango Salsa here. Both are delightful recipes for any gathering of friends and family.

Need help picking a ripe mango when you're at the grocery store? The National Mango Board offers these helpful hints: don't focus on color to determine ripeness, it's not the best indicator. Squeeze the mango gently. When ripe, it will give slightly. Use your past experience with produce like peaches or avocados, which also become softer as they ripen. Ripe mangos will sometimes have a fruity aroma that comes from around the stem.
