He kept saying ‘You have to use the cranberry mint jalapeno jelly on chicken wings’. After a few hours, I asked him to hold a jar of the jelly for me because I am going to test it out and see if the recipe lives up to his declarations.
He handed me a jar and said, give it a go. I gave it a go. He was spot on.
In conclusion, the lesson is: Grab your condiments any night of the week and use them to make a basic meal more interesting.
2-3 lbs of chicken wings (thawed)
1 cup Cranberry Mint Jalapeno Jelly (or your favorite sauce)
Olive oil cooking spray
1. Preheat oven to 450 degrees and prepare the baking sheet by placing a cooling rack on it (it helps to crisp the skin).
2. Spray the cooling rack with the cooking spray, place wings on the cooling rack and bake for 25-30 minutes.
3. Remove the chicken wings and place into a large bowl, toss with the jelly and serve.
