For game day, try a twist on traditional chicken wings with a peanut butter, grape jelly and sriracha glaze!
People tend to think of peanut butter and jelly as a kid’s snack. Here’s what people don’t get: It’s really the perfect flavor combo. It’s the perfect mix of sweet and savory and if you add in a little spice, you have the perfect recipe for some really good chicken wings.
Sure. These aren’t your standard bright red wing, but trust me. Once you give one of them a shot, you’ll be hooked – and so will your guests!
Before you start the wings, make sure you have the sauce ready to go because you want to sauce them right when they come out of the fryer. The sauce is a pretty basic one with only four ingredients, but they taste more complex than that!
This sauce can easily burn due to all the sugar in the jelly, so just stir together over low heat until everything is combined evenly.
Keep it warm until you need it!
You can bake these wings if you don’t want to set up the fryer. But in my opinion it’s hard to beat a good fried wing, so I prefer to do the extra work. To make sure the wings get nice and crispy, just toss them in a little flour before you fry them.
They will need to fry for around 10-12 minutes at 350ºF. Depending on your fryer, you might have to fry these guys in batches.
As soon as the wings are fried and crispy, drain them out of the fryer and toss them with the sauce. You can go light on the sauce if you want and let people add more sauce as they like.
Personally, I like to add some chopped peanuts to mine for extra crunch, and drizzle on some extra chili sauce for more heat!
These are some seriously addicting wings, people. You’ll never look at PB&J the same way again!
