Peanut Butter & Jelly Wings

PBJ WingsWhat do you think of when you hear PB&J?  Kid’s sandwiches no doubt.  Maybe comfort food.  What you probably don’t think of is chicken wings.   Last fall I had seen a recipe for Spicy PB&J Wings, tried them and liked the result.  For our neighborhood blizzard party last Friday night it seemed like a good time for an encore.

The secret to the wings is two things:

  1. Instant mashed potato flakes to give the wings a nice crispy coating, and
  2. Jalapeño pepper jelly to provide some spice.

When I made these in the fall Kath found the sauce a touch on the heavy side, which I resolved this time by accident.  The recipe calls for you to bake the wings for 30 minutes, flip and bake 20 more THEN toss in the PB&J coating and bake for 5 minutes.  Somehow I misread the recipe in the excitement of our neighbors arriving and tossed the wings in the sauce after the first ½ hour.   I then baked them an additional 20 minutes, flipped and baked 5 minutes more.  The result was that the sauce cooked down some in the oven and left the wings with a lighter PB&J coating.   I liked them equally well both times, but good to know there is an alternative for people who like a lighter coating.

The best part:  you don’t need to cut the crusts off before you eat them!
