A dipping sauce of pureéd green chilies, apricot preserves, allspice, and bananas bring a bit of island flavor to the garlicky wings.


  • 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; purée.
  • 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.

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