  • 1 teaspoon ground cumin
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt

Pit mangoes; cut into 1-inch (2.5 cm) cubes. Seed, core and cut red pepper into 1-inch (2.5 cm) pieces. Set aside. Cut chicken into 1-inch (2.5 cm) cubes.

In large deep skillet or Dutch oven, heat half of the oil over medium-high heat; brown chicken, in batches. Transfer to plate.
