Sunny Anderson's Spicy PB&J Wings

Internal

Aired January 30, 2014

Ingredients

For the Wings:
3 pounds chicken wings, whole or separated, as you like
Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper
2 cups all-purpose flour
Peanut or vegetable oil
1/2 cup peanuts, toasted and roughly chopped, for garnish
 
For the Sauce:
1 cup smooth peanut butter
1 tablespoon plus 1 teaspoon Sriracha hot chili sauce
1/4 cup soy sauce
1 cup grape jelly
3/4 cup coconut cream
1/4 cup hot water
Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper
Preparation
Prep the wings: Place the wings on a baking sheet and season both sides with salt and pepper. Pour the flour in a paper bag or large bowl and toss the wings in the flour in batches, then place on a wire rack set inside a baking sheet or on the counter. Rest for at least 30 minutes to get to room temperature, and up to 2 hours.
 
Make the sauce: In a small pot over medium heat, combine the peanut butter, Sriracha, soy sauce, jelly and coconut cream. Slowly whisk in the hot water to loosen the mixture. Bring the sauce to a simmer, then whisk as it thickens, about 5 minutes. Taste and season with a pinch of salt, if needed, and a few grinds of black pepper.
 
Fry the wings: In a Dutch oven, large pot or fryer, pour enough oil to deep-fry wings, about 6 inches. Heat oil to 360°F. When you add your wings, the temperature will settle at 350°F. Try to keep it there by adjusting the heat. Fry the wings in batches until golden brown, 12-14 minutes. Drain on paper towels.
 
Sauce and garnish the wings: Place some of the sauce in a large bowl and toss the wings in batches, adding more sauce to thoroughly coat. Place wings on a serving tray and sprinkle with chopped peanuts. Serve warm.
 

 

A sweet peanut butter and jelly glaze on the lighter side of spicy is just enough to make you want more and forget about two slices of bread.
