Sherri's notes for this recipe:
My friend Gary has the best gourmet peppers and pepper jelly. I be lovin' me some hot pepper jelly so I placed an order in for his "Special" Scorpion Pepper Jelly. I gotta tell ya, it's darn hot and so OMGOSH delicious. Here is my first recipe using this hot & sweet jar of deliciousness. Cooking with Passion, sw :)

**I've just been invited to the Today Show Feb 1st to do a live demo of these wings. I was 1 of the 3 winners in their Chicken Wing Contest. I fly out on Jan 31st. I get to meet the Today Show crew and Food Networks celebrity chef, Sunny Anderson. WOW!!! sw:)

This cook is on a roll!!! Talk about sssssssizzling hot - these fab wings won us over in a heartbeat. It's no wonder that they've got folks talking from coast to coast!

Note: We substituted in a different hot pepper jelly than Sherri recommends, but the results were still de-lish!


Mix star anise, ginger, onion and salt and pepper together in a mixing bowl. Rub all wing pieces and marinate for at least 4 hours best overnight.
Deep fry wings at 350 degrees in batches for 8-10 minutes until golden brown and juices run clear. Remove from fryer and drain on paper towels.
Meanwhile, add all sauce indredients to a medium-high heat sauce pan and whisk. Bring to a boil and reduce heat to a simmmer. Allow sauce to reduce to a 1/3. This may take 10-12 minutes.
Add sauce and wings in a large mixining bowl. Toss wings until well coated.
Transfer wings to a serving platter pour sauce over wings and garnish with cilantro.
