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.

Baked Saucy Garlic Wings

These Baked Saucy Garlic Wings are the perfect addition to your Superbowl party, or tonight’s dinner! Slather on the garlicky, delicious sauce for some crowd pleasing wings! 

Baked Saucy Garlic Wings

  First, let’s chat a bit! Remember a few months back I was in Atlanta with some bloggers for a fun Tuttorosso event with Chef Hugh Acheson?

Atlanta

tomatotasting

Well, at the event, the Tuttorosso ladies set up a canned tomato tasting and we were all mind blown. Quite literally. I’ve never taste-tested canned tomatoes, because it’s not a typical thing to eat out of a can, and oh my, you guys….There is such a difference it’s really just insane. Between texture, flavor, appearance, color, and so much more. It really is interesting to check out.

SO, I decided to do a little experiment at home to show you.
tuttorossoWe have two different cans, same type of tomatoes (whole, peeled plum tomatoes). I cracked open the cans (not literally cracked), but you get the idea. Just look at the difference between these two tomatoes.

tuttorosso2I wish you could have been in the kitchen with us when we did our little taste test.

Tuttorosso’s tomatoes were hands down the freshest, tastiest, and were uniformed (as you can see). The Tuttorosso can had no peels in the sauce, no taste from the can, etc. Canned tomatoes are used so often in recipes, and for good reason, so it definitely is a fun little experiment to try at home so you can really taste and see the difference in the canned tomatoes you are using!


 Now… to the wings!

The Superbowl is right around the corner. For good measure and for some good taste-testers, I made these wings for last’s week championship game and everybody loved them!

They are perfectly cooked. Saucy, garlicky, and finger-lickin’ good.

    Crispy Baked Buffalo Wings

    You can’t have a Superbowl party without wings (in my opinion)! You can though, have them crispy and flavorful without being fried. I visited friends at the University of Buffalo years back. We, of course, got the famous Buffalo wings and as you can imagine they were fabulous. I can’t believe it has taken me this long to post my version here. In college I was a big fan of Wings over Amherst (these are not healthy). I definitely still think about those fried boneless wings (and the cajun cheese fries). Many of my friends ordered honey mustard, BBQ, garlic parmesan… me? Give me Buffalo any day of the week. The tip I found years back that I love (and successfully tried last week with my Sweet Potato Chili Fries), is placing a wire rack on the baking sheet. Gets everything nice and crisp!

    I had to ask Mike this morning who was playing and what time the game was starting. Oops. I was so busy planning my menu, I missed those minor details. So much for being a sports gal…
