Island Chicken Wings Print Email

8 chicken wings
1 4 oz. can diced green chilies, drained
1/4 cup chopped onion
1/4 cup golden raisins
2 TBS apricot preserves
1 TBS brown sugar
1 TBS lemon juice
1/4 tsp ground allspice
1 large banana, peeled and cut into chunks
1 TBS garlic oil

Cut off wing tips; discard or save for other purposes. Cut remaining wings apart at joints to make 2 pieces each.

To make dipping sauce, in blender, combine chilies, onion, raisins, preserves, brown sugar, lemon juice, allspice and banana; puree.

In large skillet, heat garlic oil. Cook wings for 18 to 20 minutes or until well-browned on all sides and internal juices of chicken run clear. Meanwhile, pour sauce in small saucepan and cook uncovered over medium heat for 10 minutes to thicken liquid; stir frequently.

Sprinkle wings with salt and pepper. Serve with dipping sauce.

Serves 4

TIP: For additional flavor, marinate chicken wings in Italian dressing and then grill or broil. Serve with dipping sauce.
