Secret Ingredient Peanut Butter Stuffed Chocolate Chip Skillet Cookie.
I am all about the perfect (and extra saucy) wing.
Which for me means boneless. For some reason I grew up eating boneless wings from Quaker Steak and Lube and BW3’s and never really got into real deal chicken wings. Boneless are just easier, you know? And when I say boneless, I really just mean chicken fingers with wing sauce, or in today’s case sweet and sticky mango curry sauce (YUM). Plus, I can feel better about eating these wings since they’re baked and not fried…which means there is plenty of room for some chocolate. Duh.
I feel like by now you guys all know how much I dig tropical fruits, and really just tropical flavors in general. I mean, the amount of pineapples and mangos I go through on a weekly basis is absurd, but there could be worse habits in life for sure…
With the weather being incredibly freezing, and me constantly dreaming of tropical places, my brain can’t stop coming up with tropical inspired eats. This happens every single year, but this year it’s happening about a month earlier than usual. Either I am just really craving some sweet and tangy eats OR the winter weather is really starting to get to me. I would say it’s surely a combo of both. I’m thinking I am probably not alone. Who else is ready for the beach and sunshine and plenty of pineapple and mangos?!?!
Yeah, yeah, I know, everyone!!
If I could I would fly us all to the most tropical place ever and we would chill in the sun and make KILLER food and drinks. Cute drinks out of coconuts for a week straight…err more like a month straight. Sadly, I am no Kardashian and I haven’t “made it” yet, so until that happens we can eat mango curry wings and veg out on the couch.
Not as good as the beach, but it works!
What I love about this Sticky Mango Curry Oven Baked Boneless Wings recipe is how low maintenance it is. Sometimes I’m all for the high maintenance and time involved recipes, but when it comes to recipes I want to make on a daily basis, it’s all about LOW maintenance. What I also LOVE about this recipe is that it’s a meal my entire family will eat, chicken for the boys, sweet and spicy sauce for dad and I. A meal to feed the whole family is one giant YES.
Granted, the boys would much prefer a simpler sauce, but I was surprised to learn they ate this without even complaining. I mean, that NEVER happens! Double fist pumps happening over here at the moment.
I know the mango curry sauce sounds a little odd for a wing, but you guys, I promise it’s SO delicious. Sweet, tangy and spicy! The sauce is made up of mango chutney, fresh orange + lime juice, jerk seasoning, Thai curry paste and a little soy sauce. Oh, and cilantro too! Super quick and simple, but so dang flavorful and a really nice switch up to traditional wing sauce. Don’t get me wrong, I love a spicy wing sauce, but I think I like a sweet and spicy (and fruity!) one even more. It’s my kind of thing!
As for the chicken, it gets a little breading so that sauce has something to adhere to, and then baked in the oven. Could not be easier or more of a crowd pleaser. Typically I serve these for dinner with a side of quinoa or rice (going to be honest, I mostly serve these with rice), but these would also be awesome for your Super Bowl party this Sunday, they make the ultimate game day snack. My one recommendation is that you double the mango curry sauce. The recipe as written makes enough to cover the chicken, but does not leave much for dipping. Personally, I love a lot of sauce, so extra sauce for dipping is a MUST.

Kicking winter in the butt..with all the tropical eats. Kaapow!
Just wow. This were over the top delicious! The sauce was crazy good and the chicken was juicy and tender under the crunchy coating. We made your Chipotle Sweet Potato fries to go with the chicken—what a great meal?
Wonderful!! Thanks so much for sharing your review and making this recipe. Love to hear that it was a winner! xxT
These are seriously so good. Love the flavor and spice! Thank you for sharing.
Any tips on how to get the breading on the chicken to be crispy and not get soggy?
Fantastic, I am so glad to hear that this recipe was enjoyed, thanks so much for making it! Make sure to turn the wings a few times, drizzle with olive oil, and then it’s key not to overcrowd your pan. xTieghan
So so so yummy! I couldn’t find mango chutney so I got mango salsa and added 2 TBS of apricot jam for sweetness, 2 TBS of brown sugar and a spoonful off honey. Once I added the lime and cilantro it really cooled down the heat. I ended up adding some cornstarch to the sauce to make it more like a glaze. Turned out FABULOUS. Will make again!
Thanks a lot for giving the recipe a try, I am delighted that the recipe was enjoyed! Happy Sunday! xTieghan
Would this recipe work with Cauliflower? Would there be any adjustments?
This would be great with cauliflower! I hope you love the recipe, please let me know if you have any other questions! xTieghan
THESE. ARE. LIFE-CHANGING. So easy, and so incredibly delicious.
Haha thank you so much Merritt! I am so glad you enjoyed these! xTieghan
This is the best sauce ever!!!!! You can bottle this and sell it!!
WOW thank you so much Sandy! So happy you like it (:
Where do you get your mango chutney?!
HI! I either homemake it or buy it from whole foods. Let me know if you have any questions! thanks! 🙂
Could you share your mango chutney recipe?
For this recipe, I just used a store bought mango chutney. I hope you love the recipe, please let me know if you give it a try! xTieghan
Very interesting blog. A lot of blogs I see these days don’t really provide anything that I’m interested in, but I’m most definately interested in this one. Just thought that I would post and let you know.
Thank you! So happy you like it!
For a lactose free version, do you think lactose free cream or almond milk would work? Any suggestions?
HI! I think almond milk will work great, let me know if you have any questions. Thanks!
This recipe sounds delish! What adjustments should be done if I use actual chicken wings? Thank you.
Hi!! No adjustments needed. Just toss the wings with the sauce and bake as directed. You may need to bake the wings longer to ensure they get fully cooked. Let me know if you have questions. Hope you love these!!
Amazing!, great flavor. Made these last night. Had with Basmati rice & steamed broccoli to make it a meal. Doubled the sauce like you suggested & it worked great.
So happy you loved the wings, thank you!
These wings so need to be on my Super Bowl menu! And I am so on board with that mango sauce!
These sound amazing! I will have to try.
