Ingredients

Mango-Chili Sauce

  • 3 large mangos, peeled, pitted and coarsely chopped
  • 1/3 cup coconut sugar
  • 1/2 cup coconut aminos
  • 1/2 teaspoon organic molasses
  • 1/4 teaspoon fish sauce
  • 1/2 teaspoon apple cider vinegar
  • 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon onion powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon ginger powder
  • 1 tablespoon avocado oil
  • 1/2 teaspoon red pepper flakes
  • 1 tablespoon chili paste

Other Ingredients

  • 2 pounds chicken wings (about 24), wingtips removed, or drumettes rinsed and patted dry
  • Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper
  • Chopped scallions, for garnish

Instructions

  1. Place all of the mango-chili sauce ingredients, except for the chili paste, into a high-speed blender. Puree until smooth. Stir in the chili paste and taste. Adjust seasoning as desired.
  2. Place chicken wings in a large bowl and season with salt and pepper. Coat with 1/2 cup of mango-chili sauce, set the rest of the sauce aside for later. Sprinkle wings with sesame seeds and cover with plastic wrap. Refrigerate for 30 minutes to 1 hour.
  3. Grease a grill or grill pan. Grill the wings for about 5 minutes on each side, or until opaque and fully cooked through.
  4. While wings cook, place reserved sauce in a small saucepan and bring to a boil. Reduce heat to medium-low and simmer for about 5 minutes. If the sauce is too thick, add a few teaspoons of water until the desired consistency is reached. If the sauce is too thin, continue to cook until thick.
  5. Toss chicken wings in 1/4 cup of sauce (or brush sauce on them) and place on a serving platter.
  6. Garnish with chopped scallions and diced mangoes, and serve with remaining mango-chili sauce on the side for dipping!

Recipe Notes

How to cut a mango: Slice off the sides of the fruit, avoiding the large seed in the center. Once you have these two sides, you can get to the flesh and slice or dice as needed. Then simply scoop it out of the skin.
