I lived in the Caribbean when I was a child. Every time I make this yummy chicken, the fresh tropical fruits transport me back to those happy times. —Lissa Nelson, Provo, Utah

  • 2 medium mangoes, peeled and chopped
  • 1-1/2 cups cubed fresh pineapple or canned pineapple chunks, drained
  • 2 medium tomatoes, chopped
  • 1 medium red onion, finely chopped
  • 2 small Anaheim peppers, seeded and chopped
  • 2 green onions, finely chopped
  • 1 tablespoon lime juice
  • 1 teaspoon sugar
  • 4 pounds bone-in chicken breast halves, skin removed
  • 3 teaspoons salt
  • 1/4 cup packed brown sugar
  • 32 taco shells, warmed
  • 1/4 cup minced fresh cilantro


  1. In a large bowl, combine the first 8 ingredients. Place chicken in a 6-qt. electric pressure cooker; sprinkle with salt and brown sugar. Top with mango mixture. Lock lid; close pressure-release valve. Adjust to pressure-cook on high for 10 minutes.
  2. Allow pressure to naturally release for 10 minutes and then quick-release any remaining pressure. Remove chicken; cool slightly. Strain cooking juices, reserving mango mixture and 1/2 cup juices. Discard remaining juices. When cool enough to handle, remove chicken from bones; discard bones. Shred chicken with 2 forks.
  3. Select saute setting and adjust for medium heat. Return chicken, reserved mango mixture and cooking juices to pressure cooker; stir to heat through. Serve in taco shells; sprinkle with cilantro.
