I’m Back! It’s Superbowl Sunday and you know what that means? It’s time to eat!!!! A good spread always consist of wings and I am sharing with you a new recipe I have for Mango Habanero Wings!
Here’s what you’ll need!
1 ripe mango
3-4 habanero peppers
1-2 garlic gloves (I didn’t feel like running to the store so I just used a 1/2 tsp of chopped garlic out the jar)
2 cups of flour
5lbs wing portions
1-2 cup of honey
1 cup of brown sugar
*Salt, black pepper, cayenne pepper, onion powder and garlic powder for taste
*******NOW LET’S BEGIN!********
Cut up onions and peppers. Size doesn’t matter in this case because they will be blended later. Put them in a small pot with the garlic and add a cup and a half of water.
Bring it to a boil. Then turn the pot on medium-low heat so that the flavors all combine.
Cut up the mango into cubes and place them into a blender
Scoop the peppers and onions out of the water after turning off the pot and add them to the blender. Add cover and blend for about 5-7 seconds. Add the water from the pot and blend for addition 10 seconds.
Pour the sauce into a bowl and add black pepper, cayenne pepper, 1/4 cup of brown sugar and salt . I just eyeball this so I would recommend added a little at a time and tasting just to make sure it’s not over salted. Use a whisk to blend together all of the ingredients and then put the bowl to the side.
Clean the chicken by removing access fat and washing it. I like to use vinegar to clean my chicken. In a separate bowl add the flour, salt, black and cayenne peppers and a little bit of crushed red peppers. I also added in the rest of the brown sugar to give the skin a little sweetness. Whisk the ingredients together and then add the towel dried chicken to the bowl. Use your hands and mix the chicken and flour together until all the pieces are coated.
Place a pan with high sides onto medium-high heat and add vegetable oil to heat up. ( You can use whatever kind of oil you want). Without crowding the pan, add a few pieces of chicken when the oil gets hot and cook on each side for 7-8 minutes.
Use a pot spoon with holes to fish out the chicken and shake off the extra oil before adding the meat directly to the sauce bowl . (I forgot to take that picture.) Mix the chicken around in the sauce and then remove and add onto serving dish. Repeat process until all the meat has been cooked. Sprinkle a little basil on top and ENJOY!
