Recipe: Tropical Buffalo Wings

I love spicy chicken wings! Recently, I learned a nice twist to it: MANGO. I got the idea from Chilli and Ink in Maginhawa Street and tried to execute it myself. I know it sounds a little unusual but it's worth a try (especially now that mangoes are in season).

Tropical Buffalo Wings

Original (non-tropical) version

Tropical Buffalo Wings

1 kg chicken wings
1/2 cup milk
1/3 cup flour
cayenne (optional)

1/4 cup butter, melted
half a mango, pureed
chilli pepper sauce

1. Mix together milk, flour, salt, pepper and cayenne.
2. Coat the chicken with the batter. You may let it sit for an hour.
3. Cook the chicken until crispy. You can deep-fry it but I prefer using the convection roaster at 200 degrees C for 30 to 40 minutes (so that I don't have to use oil anymore and some of the chicken fat gets drained too).

4. While the chicken is cooking, mix the melted butter, mango puree and enough chilli pepper sauce.
Left: butter and chilli sauce mixture. Right: mango puree.

5. After the chicken cooks, immediately dunk it into the butter-mango-chilli pepper mixture.
6. You can serve the wings with garlic mayo dip (mayo mixed with crushed garlic).
