Mangos are a great source of Vitamin C, Vitamin A, and fiber and are a great lower calorie snack at 100 calories a cup! Plus, they are SO flavorful, juicy, and delicious!

These wings lasted about 2 hours in my house. Marinated to perfection with just the right amount of smoky heat, we could not get enough!

Ingredients

Mango-Chili Sauce

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.

    Bruschetta Chicken

    This Bruschetta Chicken is perfect anytime of the year, but it’s my favorite during grilling season. The chicken is marinated to perfection, grilled, and topped with delicious fresh bruschetta. Not much better for a lovely Spring or Summer night.

    Bruschetta Chicken Recipe

    Before we head to the recipe, I HAVE to tell you about the new Whole Foods Market here in Massachusetts. I had the opportunity to visit it before it opened with some fabulous Boston bloggers and I was blown away by the fresh new design and awesome new additions. If you live here, I highly recommend checking out this new Westford location. I found so many amazing local, paleo-friendly, and healthy options– along with super unique aspects specific to their store.

    A power bowl station? Sign me up! A Clover Food Lab in the store? YES, PLEASE. 

    And tons of local items that I haven’t seen in other locations. I was in love! Their produce is amazing so it was perfect timing to make my Bruschetta Chicken! Plus, they have the most amazing cheese shop in the store — so if you tolerate some dairy like we do, the Mozzarella was a MUST.

    So besides visiting the new WFM location, it’s time to make some Bruschetta Chicken. Let’s do this!

    Tomato Jalapeño Salmon Burgers

    Since we moved into our home in June, and now have a porch with a nice grill on it, you can bet I’ll be out there grilling as long as I can. I’ll likely get a heat lamp to extend the season, that’s for sure. I love all burgers, but especially Salmon burgers. They are packed with nutrients, and you can customize the flavors in totally different ways. Since my trip to the Muir Glen Farms I am even more into tomatoes then before, and these burgers give just a touch of that delicious flavor.

    Tomato Jalapeño Salmon Burgers

    These burgers have just the right amount of flavor. They are bursting with scallions, jalapeños, and fresh garlic- and go fantastic with some homemade guacamole and fixins’, if you ask me!

    Grilled Peaches with Cinnamon Protein Whipped Cream and Caramel

    I’m on a peach craze right now. They are just so fresh. Aside from this perfectly grilled sweet treat, I’m also obsessed with my brown butter caramelized peach pancakes right now. I made those pancakes in multiple variations when my mom was in town and they were a HIT! Highly recommend.

    Anyway, back to today’s recipe and despite the school year about to begin, there’s still plenty of grill time upon us. Grilling fruit is epic. Seriously.
