Baked Chicken Wings in a Mango Habanero Sauce
IT'S SUPERBOWL TIME! When my husband thinks football, he automatically thinks wings and beer. When I think football and wings,the first thing that comes to mind is fatty fried food. To keep both my husband and myself happy, I decided that I would just bake the wings and when they were fully cooked I would broil just to give them some color and to a little crispiness.
The end result is they came out amazing. I will never, ever fry another wing again. I hope you all enjoy this as much as my husband does.
***The Mango Habanero sauce is SPICY*** So be careful and try the sauce before hand.
