Sweet and heat are a match made in heaven. These peach habanero wings have the best of worlds in the perfect game day food. They are made in the oven, so anyone can make them, but they still crisp up and taste delicious. Munch on them while watching football or make them for a fun dinnertime alternative!
I have had my mind set on making chicken glazed with my Peach Habanero Jelly for quite some time now. I love the sweet heat combo that the jelly brings. I
t is perfect spread over cream cheese and crackers. In fact it is always one of my favorites! But, I just knew there had to be other ways to use it!
I thought about doing peach habanero drumsticks on the grill this fall, but we never got around to it. With the playoffs in full swing, my mind has turned to football.
It is time for the best games of the year and so much fun, especially while my team is still in it. (Go Steelers!)
With football comes wings! They’re a match made in finger lickin’ heaven! I don’t fry at home, so I baked the chicken wings at a high temperature to get the skin crispy.
It’s my favorite way to do wings at home. Then I brushed them with a sauce made mainly from the peach habanero jelly.
I baked them a bit more to get it good and sticky. One more coat of sauce and the wings were ready to be devoured.
My husband loves wings, but to tell you the truth I wasn’t sure how he’d take to these. He doesn’t usually like the sweeter sauces.
There must have been enough spice to counteract it, because he went crazy on them. He was very complimentary, which is always nice.
I knew he really like them the next day though when I caught him bragging on them to my mom. I definitely have a winner on my hands here!
