Habanero Wings are sweet and spicy with crispy skins. It’s one of my favorite side dishes to serve with pizza and great for Game Day and other parties.

  • 2 lbs chicken wings
  • 1 ½ tablespoons baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder
  • salt & pepper to taste
  • 1 ½ cups mango chunks
  • 3 habanero peppers stems removed and seeded
  • 3 cloves garlic
  • 3 tablespoons apple cider vinegar
  • 1 lime juiced
  • 1/4 cup honey


  • Preheat oven to 425ºF. Line a large baking sheet with parchment and set aside.
  • Mix together the baking powder, garlic powder, salt and pepper in a large bowl.
  • Add chicken wings to the bowl and toss to coat evenly with the mixture. Then place on the prepared baking sheet rack.
  • Bake for about 30 minutes until slightly crispy, flipping the wings halfway through using kitchen tongs.
  • While the wings are baking, make the mango habanero sauce. Add the mango chunks, habaneros, garlic, vinegar and lime juice to a blender. Blend until smooth.
  • Add the mango habanero sauce and honey to a small saucepan. Place onto medium heat and bring to a simmer, stirring to help the honey dissolve. Let it bubble for 3-4 minutes and then remove from the heat.
  • Remove the wings from the oven. Brush each wing with the mango habanero sauce to coat completely.
  • Return to the oven to bake for 10 more minutes more or slightly caramelized. Remove from the oven and serve with pizza.
