Jalapeno Peach Wings

I think it’s safe to say that I am addicted to chicken wings. They’re one of the most versatile dishes you can make. There are literally thousands of different sauces and seasonings for them. When I walk thru the grocery store I always look to see what is in season. Chances are, whatever it is, it can be made into a wing sauce. These jalapeno peach wings are a great example. That wonderful peach flavor with just a little spicy kick. Add a little sweetness and a nice vinegary snap and you end up with fantastic tasting wings.

I wouldn’t hesitate to make an extra big batch of the sauce and use it to slather onto grilled or roasted chicken. Or brush it onto a rack of ribs just before pulling them off your smoker or grill. And it’s also fantastic on top of a chicken sandwich. The sauce is definitely not just for jalapeno peach wings but it sure is mighty good on them!

Also try my ancho peach wings.

I absolutely love chicken wings, cooked any way, with any sauce (or without). I love them so much that I created a free eCookbook that is full of my favorite wing recipes.
