Serves: 9
for chicken
  • 1½ lb chicken wings(stewing henor soft chicken)
  • 1 large bay leaf
  • 1 small onion
  • 3 small garlic cloves
  • 1 inch fresh ginger
  • ½ cup oil
  • salt
  • bouillon(optional)
for sauce
  • 1 cup diced mango
  • 1 cup water
  • 1 Habanero pepper
  • ¼ cup soy sauce
  • ½ tsp ginger powder
  • ¼ garlic powder
  • 1 tsp honey or brown sugar
  • 2 tbsps. corn starch
  • ¼ cup water
  1. If using stewing hen: In a pot season the chicken with the bay leaf, onion, garlic cloves, ginger, salt and bouillon. Do not add any water. Let the chicken cook in it's own juices until almost dry; then add some water and check for seasonings. Cook until the chicken is very soft; then drain. Once the chicken is drained, pour the oil into a wok and let it get hot. Add the chicken and quickly fry on high heat; stirring often until the chicken is just brown on the outside and still soft on the inside. Once done, drain into a lidded bowl and toss with sauce.(skip the boiling part if using the softer chicken.Refer to note); then throw in your oven on 350 degrees for about 10minutes.(you could use the broiler for 2 minutes depending on the heat)
To make sauce
  1. blend the soy sauce, 1 cup water, habanero pepper and mango in a blender. Pour into a pot and season with the garlic, ginger and honey(add more if your mango is not sweet enough). Bring to a boil; then reduce heat. Mix the corn starch and ¼ cup of water; then pour into the mango sauce stir often until the sauce forms a slurry. Cook on low for 10 minutes. enjoy
Another way to enjoy this chicken without the quick fry method is to toss the cooked chicken with the sauce and cook in the oven until slightly brown. It is absolutely delicious :)….

If using using the soft chicken simply season with salt, paprika, pepper and bake in an oven; then toss in sauce and broil.
