Great finger food for any gathering.
Ingredients
  • 1-1/2 cups seedless raspberry jam
  • ⅓ cup balsamic vinegar
  • 3 T soy sauce
  • 1-1/2 teaspoon crushed red pepper
  • 1 package (5 lb) frozen chicken wings, thawed
Instructions
  1. Preheat the oven to 375 degrees
  2. Line two baking sheets with aluminum foil.
  3. In a small saucepan, combine the jam, balsamic vinegar, soy sauce and crushed red pepper over low heat, stirring until smooth. Bring to a boil and turn off stove. This burns easily so keep stirring for a while.
  4. Place wings in a large bowl, add half of the raspberry mixture and toss to coat.
  5. Using a slotted spoon, place wings in pan. Discard marinade.
  6. Place on the baking sheets and bake for 40 minutes turning once.
  7. In the meantime, slowly bring reserved raspberry mixture to a boil. Reduce the heat and simmer until it thickens (about 10 minutes). Turn the wings and brush with the remaining jam mixture.
  8. Bake for 10 more minutes or until no pink remains in the chicken and the sauce glazes the wings.
Notes
Sauce burns easily. Keep an eye on it and keep stirring. For a change, you might want to try this with apricot jam instead of raspberry.
