Featured Pinch Tips Video
- 10 fresh whole chicken wings
- chicken wing dry rub, as needed, recipe follows
- 2/3 cup seedless raspberry jam
- 1/3 cup creamy peanut butter
- 1/2 tablespoon hot sauce
1with a sharp knife, cut the tips off the chicken wings and save them for stock. Slash the inside of the wing joint to help them cook more evenly but don't cut them all the way through. Sprinkle liberally with the chicken wing dry rub. Set aside.
2In a small pan over low heat, warm the jam, peanut butter, and hot sauce for about five minutes stirring often until well blended. Keep warm.
3Prepare the grill for cooking over direct medium heat. Grill the wings for about 25 minutes, turning often. The wings are done when they are nicely browned and the juices run clear. Remove the wings to a platter. You may serve the wings whole but if you like to serve them in individual segments, cut them apart now. Transfer the wings to a large bowl. Pour the peanut butter and jelly mix over the wings. Toss to coat well. Transfer to a platter to serve. Serves 10
