Spicy Glazed Chicken Wings

Unfortunately our favorite football team lost this past week. Yep, we are a Green Bay Packers family. So when it comes to game day, I typically make things like a batch of chili, nachos, or other finger foods. This particular weekend, I was browsing through my freezer and realized I had frozen a bunch of chilies from the garden this summer. Everything from habaneros, to serrano, to jalapeno peppers. Not only that but a package of chicken wings that I knew my kids would devour. This is when I thought I would come up a spicy glazed chicken wing, and boy did they hit the spot.

As much as I like a fried chicken wing, I wanted to go a bit more simple on this recipe and bake them. I bake them from time to time and they always turn out great, at least in my opinion.

So let’s get started.

Ingredients:

  • 2 lbs of chicken chickens, split (I keep the wing tip on)
  • Large pot or dutch oven, with about 1 cup of water
  • 6 chili peppers, I used an array of habanero, jalapeno, and serrano, punctured
  • 1 cup of light brown sugar
  • 2 cups of water
  • large rimmed baking sheet
  • 2 tbsp spiced seasoning (I used Slap Ya Mama)
  • 2 tbsp unsalted butter

Take the chicken wings and add them to your large pot. Add in the water, bring to medium heat, and lightly poach the chicken for about 25 minutes. The goal is to par cook.

During this time add the chilies, light brown sugar, and 2 cups of water to a stock pot. Bring to a simmer, reduce the heat to low, and stir along the way. This will be your spicy glaze. Adjust the heat as necessary as you want the consistency of a light syrup.

Preheat your oven to 375 degrees. Remove the chicken with a slotted spoon, and add them to your baking sheet.

Cook for about 1 hour or until your desired doneness. We actually like ours a bit crisp and a bit more dry. Once cooked and crisped, remove them from the oven and dump them into a mixing bowl. Add in the butter, and spoon on as much of the spicy glaze as you desire.

Sprinkle on some of the spiced seasoning, give a good toss, and plate and serve.

The result was everything we love in a crispy chicken wing with just the amount of spice. If you are looking for a good wing, and one that is baked, give these a shot. Hope you enjoy!

Thank you for visiting my website. Truly, I do appreciate it. My free time and stress reliever is cooking for my family, friends, and everyone in between. The recipes you find on this site are those that I have either created, been part of, or those that I simply enjoy and have made my own in some shape, form, or other. My focus has always been on comfort food, because at the end of a long work day, you want something comforting. I currently am the father of three children, and married to a wonderful wife of thirteen years. There is nothing fancy with these recipes, just simple, and I will admit, not so simple ingredients, and a simple kitchen corner I can call my own. I learned early on that cooking and bringing family together was very important. After all, this notion of being together at dinner time was instilled early on by my parents. There are many memories of being in the kitchen with my parents, watching them cook, or preparing meals, or those home cooked smells while waiting for dinner. My parents who worked full-time, always had home cooked meals during the week, with the exception of Friday nights where we would enjoy a Wisconsin fish fry, and often on late afternoons on Sunday, where we would order Ann's pizza. I tend to cook by making things up. As a home cook, I think you have to take chances, and add or subtract ingredients that make up a dish, and make them your own. Remember to taste, and taste often. If a dish has potential, try it again, and make it your own. You should also note that I do not count calories, or break down recipes into grams of anything. To me, that's a bit boring. My philosophy is that if the food is good, eat it, and eat it in moderation. Life is just too short not to enjoy good food.
