Mango Habanero Chicken Wings

 While chicken wings might not be my first choice when it comes to chicken, they are my husband’s absolute favorite food so I try to incorporate them into our weekly menu from time to time. I actually love how crispy the skin gets after it’s baked and it’s fun to play around with new sauces. This mango habanero sauce is the perfect blend of sweet and spicy (but not too spicy, in my opinion). Serve this with a leafy salad or sweet potato fries (and maybe a side of blue cheese or ranch if you need a cool down!).

1. Preheat oven to 425. Line a large baking sheet with parchment paper and lay chicken wings on the sheet in a single layer, skin side down. Bake for 20 minutes, flip and bake for 15 minutes longer.

 

 

2. Meanwhile, melt butter in a saucepan over medium heat. Add wing sauce, mango, habanero, agave and salt. Simmer for 5 minutes.

 

 

3. Transfer the sauce to a blender and process until smooth.

4. Place the wings in a large bowl and pour sauce over; toss to coat.
