This Mango Sauce/Dip is easy to make, and always gets rave reviews when I serve it to company. A little coconut milk helps enhance the mango and give it a rich tropical flavor, while a touch of lime juice keeps it on the savory side.

Instead of the usual applesauce or peaches, these pork chops are accompanied by a tangy Thai fresh mango sauce that marries beautifully with the flavor of pork. The chops are easily baked in the oven, and the accompanying sauce can be made as they bake. A great recipe for everyday cooking as well as for company.

This Thai Mango Grilled Chicken recipe is a delight to make and to eat. And it's easy to whip up.

Serve this barbecue chicken with some rice, and you'll make everyone happy at dinner - even the kids!

Makes a very tropical and summery dinner treat!
