    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!
