I am a sucker for wings and these mango and sweet chilli wings do not disappoint. There are so many wing recipes I love, however this is the one I keep going back to.
They are sticky and tasty, just like wings should be. Like most of my dishes, these wings are very simple to make. I use a ready made sauce for the mango and sweet chilli coating, just to make my life easier. I always keep a range of sauces in the house in case I want to make these wings or my sweet chilli chicken. My sauces of choice for these wings are the Encona West Indian Extra Hot Pepper Sauce and the Indian Sweet Mango and Chilli. The West Indian Extra Hot Pepper is quite spicy, so if that is not your thing I suggest you use siracha, or leave the hot sauce out completely.
I like to use drumette and flat wingettes because they are easier to eat than full sized wings. However this can be made with full sized wings and will taste just as good.
I like to heat my sauce before tossing the wings in it, this is a personal preference. The reason for heating it up is to ensure the honey melts through the sauce, although whisking everything vigorously will have the same effect and less washing up.
These wings are perfect for when you are craving junk food, but want to avoid any fried takeaways. I am a big fan of homemade takeaway style dishes, particularly if they are easy to recreate. We usually have these with some homemade wedges and corn on the cob. Perfect finger food meal.
