It’s that time of year. Lots and lots of football games, from college bowl games to the “Big One”, the Super Bowl. People gather to cheer for their favorite teams and of course have snacks. Here is a twist on a game day food, chicken wings. These wings are especially delicious. Baked, not fried and glazed with Just Jan’s Mango Chipotle spread. A unique hot (but not too hot) and sweet take on the familiar recipe.
Just Jan’s Mango Chipotle Spread is enhanced with fresh ginger and lime juice, adding to the already sweet and spicy undertones.
1 jar Just Jan’s Mango Chipotle Spread
juice of 1 lime
1 Tbsp. Fresh minced ginger
freshly ground pepper
12 – 16 chicken wings/drummies
sliced green onions and chopped cilantro for garnish
Combine the Just Jan’s Mango Chipotle Spread, ginger, lime juice, salt and pepper in a sauce pan. Heat on low for about five minutes. Preheat oven to 450 degrees.
Toss the wings in a bowl with salt and pepper.
Place on a baking tray. *Good idea to line the pan with foil for easy clean up. Put the wings on the pan in a single layer. Roast for about 25 minutes at 450 degrees.
Remove from oven. Brush the wings with half of the mango chipotle mixture. Reserve the other half for dipping later.
Place under the broiler. Broil on high for 3 minutes. Take out of the oven and flip the wings over. Put back in the oven and broil for 3 minutes longer.
You want the chicken to be fall off the bone tender, to turn the oven down to 350 degrees and place wings back into the oven to reach desired tenderness. (about 15 min)
Arrange wings on a platter. Garnish with sliced green onions and chopped cilantro. Thin the reserved Mango Chipotle Spread with a few tsp. of water. Place in a small bowl for dipping.
