Ingredients

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

Instructions

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!
