Raspberry Chipotle Wings

I’m still craving some wings with a sweet hot sticky sauce baked on them.

This is my latest effort try.

I gotta say I’m having fun trying to get this recipe just right.  The first try time I experimented with them, I served them at Tapas Night in July and they were ok, not all that great, but meh, ok.     My second try was for Boat Club in July and I called them Sweet and Spicy and they were good, but not great.  I thought they were better than my first try.

So onwards and upwards, I’m still craving those wings.  And I will get them right, even if it takes me a few more tries.

This time round, I’m trying a hint I read somewhere of poaching the wings first for about 10 minutes, before slathering them with sauce and baking them off.

I then baked them for about 30 minutes in a 350 deg. oven to try to get them browned a little.  Didn’t work.

Next time they will go in for an hour, minimum.      I want them to be falling off the bone tender, browned and yummy.

So I put them in a pan, and poured my prepared sauce over them, well, actually I basted them with the sauce first.

But that didn’t seem like it would be sufficient so I just poured the sauce over them and baked them off.

And this is how they looked when I took them out.
Sorry a little blurry…

I served them with some sweet potato fries and thoroughly enjoyed them.   But as I was eating the wings, I was planning my next try.  I have the sweet part down, just need a little something more, a little heat of course, but they are still missing something.  Maybe a marinade or a dry rub, hmmmm, and I just remembered I bought some chipotle pepper seasoning not that long ago…

Here’s the latest mixture  sauce:
1/2 cup Roasted Raspberry Chipotle Sauce
1/4 cup Ken’s Asian Soy Sauce dressing
1/4 cup Blackberry Jelly
1 tablespoon Sesame Oil

Heat and whisk together and then pour over the wings and bake for 30 minutes at 400 degrees.
Serve with some sweet potato fries if you like.

Which I made as a last minute thought.   I peeled the potato, cut it into strips, and zapped it in the microwave for 3 minutes.   Heated up the oil and added a few pieces of potato at a time, and fried them til golden.   As soon as they came out of the oil, I sprinkled them with a little sugar and cinnamon.    I have to say, this is my first time making these, and it will not be my last, they were so good.
