I'm not normally a wing person. But I was looking for turkey wings and finding nothing. So I bought these as backup. But then I found the magical, mystical turkey wings. So something had to be done. And what do you do with wings, but slather them with delicious sauces? And these were pretty darn good. It would be nice if I could figure out a way to get them really crispy in the oven, but it's worth it to not have to deal with frying in oil.
Mango-Peach Habanero Wings
From Flavor Mosaic blog
24 chicken wings or drummettes with skin (approximately 3 pounds)
Salt and pepper
½ teaspoon garlic powder
½ teaspoon paprika
¾ cup mango habanero salsa
½ cup peach preserves
¼ cup chopped cilantro for garnish
Preheat oven to 400°F.
Pat wings dry with a paper towel and sprinkle with salt, pepper, garlic powder and paprika. Place the wings on a foil covered baking sheet and cook in the preheated oven for about 45 minutes, turning once.
In a medium saucepan over low heat, stir together the mango habanero salsa and peach preserves until smooth and heated through. Brush the mango-peach habanero glaze over each of the wings, both sides, and cook for about 8 to 10 minutes more. Remove from the oven, brush with additional glaze, and place on a serving plate. Garnish with chopped cilantro.
