Strawberry Jalapeno Chicken Wings

I am always on the lookout to try some new flavors for chicken wings and today’s was a new favorite. Strawberry on wings may seem too odd to even try, but trust me that they turned out incredible.

These wings have a wonderful sweet heat. The strawberry jam created a fruity glaze on the wings and the lime juice provided a bit of zing. There was a mild heat level from the jalapeno peppers and a bright freshness from the mint leaves.

One thing I have discovered in experimenting with chicken wings is that jam works great. Jam creates a glaze on the wings and carries the other spices or ingredients.

These are a great party food choice and a welcome addition to any game day menu.

Making these wings could not be much easier. Mix all the ingredients for the marinade in a food processor. Toss the wings in the marinade and leave in the fridge for at least an hour. Bake in a 375F oven for an hour, turning and basting with the marinade after 30 minutes.
