These mango habanero wings are to die for! Flavored with fruity mango and lime, spicy habanero, and seasoned perfectly, these wings will be a must at dinner and parties.
Why These Wings Are So Good
- These wings are made with our manago habanero sauce and are insanely flavorful. They’re fruity and spicy and amazingly seasoned.
- These wings are surprisingly simple to make, but taste like they came from your favorite wing restaurant.
- We love this recipe for a delicious dinner, but it’s perfect for an appetizer, too!
How To Make Mango Habanero Wings
- Preheat the oven to 425º F.
- To make the sauce, add all the sauce ingredients to a food processor or blender and blend until smooth. Use 1/3 cup for the wings and store the rest in the fridge.
- Line a baking sheet with aluminum foil, then place a wire rack on top of it. Spray with cooking spray.
- Use paper towels to pat the wings dry. Add to a large bowl with the seasonings, mixing until well-coated.
- Arrange the wings with the skin facing up on the wire rack. Bake for 20 minutes, then flip and bake for another 20 minutes.
- Remove from from the oven and let cool. Add back to the bowl and coat in the mango habanero sauce.
Top Tips For Making
- Placing the wings on a baking sheet is important to make them crispy. Make sure to pat dry them well, too, as this will help them crisp up.
- If you have any extra mango habanero sauce after using 1/3 cup for the wings, you can store it in a bottle or jar in the fridge for at least two months.
- We love these plain, but they are also super delicious with a side of bleu cheese dressing.
