- 2 peaches
- 2 mangos
- 1 habanero pepper
- 1/4 cup lime juice and lime zest
- 1/2 teaspoon cumin
- 1 teaspoon brown sugar
- 1 teaspoon white sugar
- Salt and pepper
- 12 chicken wings
- 1 pound of shrimp tossed in 3 tablespoons of cumin
- Remove the pit from the peaches and place in a blender.
- Slice down the thin side of the mango on both sides and scoop out the mango from each half and place in the blender.
- Slice the habanero pepper in half (you might want to use rubber gloves for this as the pepper can be incredibly hot), and remove the seeds and the white pith from the inside of the pepper. Slice the pepper in thin strips, then into a small dice and reserve to add to the blender as you taste for heat.
- Add the lime juice, cumin and sugar to the blender.
- Cover the blender and blend until smooth, then add a small pinch of the habanero pepper pieces and blend again.
- Taste for salt and pepper and heat. Add more habanero for additional heat or more brown sugar if the sauce is too spicy.
- Pour into a sauce pan and gently heat until it just reaches the simmer. Your wild wing sauce is done.
- To grill your chicken you want to tuck the wing tip under the little drumette so that the wing will lie flat on the grill and you want to grill your chicken on medium heat turning frequently.
- The chicken will take about 15 to 20 minutes to cook and you will notice that they go from "springy" to relaxed and it is when they are fully relaxed that they are done.
- To be sure your chicken is fully cooked check the temperature and see that they are at 160 degrees. They will continue to rise in temperature a bit after you remove them from the heat to rest.
- The last 8 minutes of cooking time on your chicken is when you want to simply toss the shrimp onto the grill. They will cook fast and when they are all orange they are done. This should take 5 to 8 minutes.
