Mango-Chili Sauce:

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

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


1. Place all of the mango-chili sauce ingredients into a high-speed
blender. Puree until smooth.

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!
