Day 8 of #10daysoftailgate-Cherry Chipotle Glazed Wings

Wow it is hard to believe that September is nearly over and sad to believe that so is our 10 Days of Tailgate Event.  I hope you have enjoyed this event as much as I.  Can you believe how many great recipes the group created using all the wonderful product so generously provided by our sponsors.  I hope one of my followers ends up winning one of the prize packages!

Today I am showcasing the first sponsor product that I received, Cherry Chipotle Not Ketchup. Not Ketchup gave us the opportunity to choose our flavor and I immediately thought that the Cherry Chipotle would be absolutely fantastic as a glaze on wings.  I think I was right.....Let me know what you think.

As I was working on the Glaze I decided I would like a little more kick.  I went into the refrigerator to grab the hot sauce when I spied the Smokey Chipotle Mustard from another one of our sponsors, El Diablo.  It was the perfect complement to the glaze.

Making your own wings is much thriftier than going out or buying premade and they are easy peasy to make.  I am sharing this recipe at Thrifty Thursday.

Cherry Chipotle Glazed Wings

3 lbs. Chicken Wings, separated at joints, wing tips discarded (or thrown into the stockpot)
1 T. olive oil
2 generous pinches of Kosher salt
5 or 6 grinds of the pepper mill
1 t. garlic powder
1/2 c. Not Ketchup, Cherry Chipotle Sauce
1 T. honey
1 t. El Diablo, Smokey Chipotle Hot and Spicy Mustard

Toss chicken wings with the olive oil, salt, pepper and garlic powder.  Place on a foil lined baking sheet and bake in a preheated 375* oven for half an hour.  While wings are cooking combine remaining ingredients to make glaze.  After half an hour, remove wings from oven and brush on one side with glaze,  Return to the oven for another 7 minutes.  Remove from oven, flip wings and brush opposite side with remaining glaze. Bake for another 7 minutes.  Can be served hot or at room temperature.  Print Recipe
