I’ll admit that the reason I was drawn to this recipe when I saw it on Elle’s New England Kitchen is because the recipe specifically calls for Frank’s Hot Sauce and I have a slight obsession with it. And then I read more and saw that the recipe won the Royal Foodie Joust. And the sauce has mango! I had to try them.
The wings were really good. I think I would’ve preferred baking them without sauce and then coating them but the husband loved them. The recipe included a mango lime cream dipping sauce. Neither one of us liked it. It was good on its own but not with chicken.
- 20 chicken wings
- 1 cup flour
- 1/2 tsp garlic powder
- 1/2 tsp salt
- 1/8 tsp cardamom
- 1/2 cup Frank’s Hot Sauce or another hot sauce, if you prefer
- 1/2 cup pureed mango
- 1/4 cup melted butter or canola oil
- 1 1/2 cups pureed mango
- 1/2 cup sour cream
- zest of 1 lime
- juice of 1/2 a lime
- 2 tsp brown sugar
- 3/8 tsp cardamom
Heat oven to 400F. In a large ziptop bag, combine flour and dry spices.
Add the wings to the bag, seal, and toss to coat.
Place the wings on a plate and chill in the fridge for about 30-35 minutes.
In a bowl, mix the pureed mango and hot sauce. Stir in melted butter or oil.
Add all ingredients to food processor or blender and process until well blended. Refrigerate until ready to serve.
