Chili glazed wings

Just in time for football season, try this sauce at your next tailgate!


Chili glazed wings

  • 24 chicken wings
  • 1 cup chili sauce
  • 1/4 cup vinegar (apple cider)
  • 1/3 cup dr. pepper (trust me on this)


Place a folding metal steamer in the bottom of a large sauce pot and add enough water to come up almost to the bottom of the steamer.

Arrange wings on steamer like spokes on a wheel with the large meaty end pointing out and the bony narrow bit pointing inward. If you're working with a standard steamer basket you'll probably have to work in two batches.

Cover the pot and bring to a boil over high heat. When steam comes out from under lid, reduce heat to medium and steam wings for 10 minutes.

Remove the wings from the basket with your trusty spring-loaded tongs and lay out on a wire cooling rack set in a half sheet pan lined with paper towels. Refrigerate 1 hour. If working in batches, make sure chill time is one hour from last batch.

Meanwhile combine chili sauce, vinegar and Dr. Pepper in a small sauce pan and reduce down to a glaze over medium heat. Final volume will be about 1/3 original amount.

Crank oven to 425 degrees F and place rack in middle.

Remove paper towels from the half sheet pan and move wings to oven. After 20 minutes remove wings to a large mixing bowl and toss with the glaze. Return to rack and roast another 10 minutes.
