This was copied off the net.

chicken wings africana
These chicken wings, inspired by a Macanese recipe, bring together flavors of Portugal, China, and Africa, which were connected through the trade routes and colonization of Macau.
Servings: Makes 20 to 24 wings.
Ingredients
For the chicken wings
4 garlic cloves
2 shallots
1 1/2 teaspoons salt
1 tablespoon Chinese five-spice powder (available at Asian markets and most supermarkets)
2 teaspoons paprika
1 teaspoon crumbled dried rosemary
1/2 teaspoon cayenne, or to taste
2 tablespoons vegetable oil
4 pounds chicken wings (about 20 to 24), the tips cut off and reserved for another use
For the sauce
1/3 cup natural-style peanut butter
1/4 cup well-stirred canned cream of coconut
2 garlic cloves, chopped
1/4 cup water
1/4 cup chopped red bell pepper
1/8 teaspoon dried hot red pepper flakes, or to taste
1 teaspoon soy sauce
coriander sprigs for garnish if desired
Preparation
Prepare the chicken wings:
Mince and mash the garlic and the shallots to a paste with the salt and in a large bowl stir the paste together well with the five-spice powder, the paprika, the rosemary, the cayenne, and the oil. Add the chicken wings, stirring to coat them well with the marinade, and let them marinate, covered and chilled, for 4 hours or overnight. Arrange the wings, skin sides up, on the rack of a foil-lined large broiler pan and bake them in the upper third of a preheated 425°F. oven for 25 to 30 minutes, or until they are golden brown. The wings may be prepared 1 day in advance, kept covered and chilled, and reheated.
Make the sauce:
In a blender blend together the peanut butter, the cream of coconut, the garlic, the water, the bell pepper, the red pepper flakes, and the soy sauce until the mixture is smooth and season the sauce with salt.
Transfer the sauce to a serving bowl set on a platter, arrange the wings around the bowl, and garnish the platter with the coriander.
 I did make two changes: Baking the wings as the recipe indicated didn't produce the crispy skin I like, so next time I made them I broiled them (turning frequently) for about twenty minutes. Also, I love peanut sauces but I didn't think the sauce and wings went together that well so I skip the sauce now. And finally, I garnish the wings with a generous amount of fresh chopped coriander when I set them out on the platter.

I have not tryed the africian wings, But I have made these:

Jamaican "Jerk" Chicken Wings

Marinade:
1 onion, chopped
2/3 cup finely chopped scallion
2 garlic cloves
1/2 teaspoon dried thyme, crumbled
11/2 teaspoons salt
1 1/2 teaspoons ground allspice
1/4 teaspoon freshly grated nutmeg
1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
1/2 cup minced pickled jalapeno pepper, or to taste
1 teaspoon black pepper
6 drops hot sauce or to taste
2 tablespoons soy sauce
1/4 cup vegetable oil
18 chicken wings (about 3 1/4),pounds, the wing tips cut off and reserved for another use
Marinade: In a food processor or blender puree the onion, the scallion, the garlic, the thyme, the salt, the allspice, the nutmeg, the cinnamon, the jalapeno, the black pepper, the hot sauce, the soy sauce and the oil.
In a large shallow dish arrange the wings in 1 layer and spoon the marinade over them, rubbing it in. Let the wings marinate, covered and chilled, turning them once, for at least 1 hour or, preferably, overnight.
Arrange the wings in 1 layer on an oiled rack set over a foil-lined roasting pan, spoon the marinade over them, and bake the wings in the upper third of a preheated 450 degree oven for 30 to 35 minutes, or until they are cooked through.
