These tender chicken wings are marinated in mango chutney marinade and baked to perfection!
Guys, homemade chicken wings are so delicious! And they are so easy to make as well!
This easy appetizer is great for home entertaining! And you know what? Entertaining at home is easy if you get yourself organized! There are foods that can be prepped or cooked ahead. Others only take a few minutes to prepare like these smoked salmon bites, ham & cheese pinwheels or blue cheese palmiers.
Now these curry chicken wings are one of those recipes that you can prep ahead and the prep takes 5 minutes! Isn’t it great?
This recipe serves about 4–5 people (depending on how hungry they are) but can easily be doubled or halved. Just make sure the chicken wings have enough space between each other on baking tray.
How to make baked curry chicken wings
For best results leave chicken wings marinating for several hours (or overnight).
For the marinade simply combine all the ingredients in a bowl or a zip-lock bag. Store in the fridge. This prep takes 5 minutes. I usually throw the wings in a bowl and season them with salt and curry. Now I give it a good stir so each chicken wing is well coated with seasoning. Only now I add 1 cup mango chutney, Worcestershire sauce and oyster sauce. Again, mix well. This goes in the fridge for several hours.
The longer you marinade the wings the better. If you are in a rush, you could cut it down to 30 minutes but if you have a chance leaving them in marinade longer, do so.
Now all you have to do is throw the wings in the oven and wait until they are tender. By the way, I don’t mean throwing like literally (in case some of you were questioning my baking techniques)! Baking will take about 25 minutes. I also pour the marinade over chicken wings before they go in the oven. You can also try to brush each chicken wing with this marinade.
About 25 minutes later you will be rewarded with baked curry chicken wings. Yummy-licious! Oh and the best thing about making these homemade chicken wings is the fact that those 25 minutes is a passive time!

You can serve these curry chicken wings with anything you like. This time I opted for a mango chutney sauce as I had some mango chutney left in the jar. I simply mixed sour cream & mango chutney together. I also like sour cream, ketchup and garlic dip which is also pretty easy to make.
All you need to do is mince 1 or 2 garlic cloves and mix it with ketchup and sour cream. I always eyeball the amounts as you can’t go wrong here. In general 5:1 ratio (5 tablespoons sour cream to 1 tablespoon ketchup/chutney) works and if it doesn’t add more ketchup or chutney.
