Please share

A little sweet and a little heat will have you licking your fingers and coming back for more. Baked peach habanero chicken wings are perfect game day food and you don’t have the mess of frying.

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.

It 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!

Buffalo chicken nachos take spicy chicken, smooth creamy cheese sauce and crunchy tortilla chips to make the ultimate game day food.

We bake our wings at home too, I usually boil them first to get rid of the extra fat and then put them in the oven on broil or high heat to get the skin crispy. But I think that I have missed out on the drying off stage and I have never used cornstarch. Does this help them to crisp up faster? My way seems to take forever!

This sauce sounds perfect, I love peach and the heat with it sounds divine! No wonder Matt loved them. It is a winner!

What an interesting way to do them! I'll have to try boiling them sometime. I think the cornstarch helps them get crispy and gives the sauce a little something to stick too... but that's the way I always do it, so I should really try without sometime and see if it makes a difference ;-)
