Sweet and Spicy Hot Pepper Wings


I often give people my jellies and spices as gifts, and then they ask me how best to use them. Here is just one suggestion how to use my Hot Pepper Jelly – I welcome other ideas as well…(Personally, I like it with cheese and crackers).

Yields 2 dozen

Olive oil cooking spray
2 to 3 pounds chicken wings, split into drums and planks, wing tips cut off and discarded
Silver Service Chef’s Lindy’s Rib Rub to taste
1/2 cup Silver Service Chef Hot Pepper Jelly
1/4 cup freshly squeezed lime juice
1/4 cup Frank’s hot sauce

Preheat the broiler. Line a sheet pan with foil, place a rack on top of the pan and spray the rack.
Sprinkle the wings with Lindy’s Rib Rub. Spread the wings on the rack in 1 layer. Broil 4 to 5 inches from the heat, turning over once, until cooked through, 20 to 30 minutes.
In a small saucepan over moderate heat, whisk the hot pepper jelly, lime juice and hot sauce until smooth. Bring to a boil, reduce the heat and let simmer 3 to 5 minutes. Brush 1/4 cup sauce on the cooked wings (or toss in a metal bowl) and broil 3 minutes. Toss again in more sauce and broil 1 to 2 more minutes until crispy.
Toss with the remaining sauce before serving.
