    Ingredients for Pepper Jelly Glazed Baked Chicken Wings

    • 1 3/4 pounds chicken wings separated into drumettes and flats
    • 2 teaspoons Kosher salt
    • 1 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
    • 1 teaspoon ground coriander
    • 1 teaspoon ground ginger
    • 1/2 cup red pepper jelly I am using Braswell's
    • 1 tablespoon apple cider vinegar
    • 1 tablespoon unsalted butter


    The Method

    • Preheat oven to 450°F. Prepare a rimmed baking sheet lined with aluminum foil sprayed lightly with cooking spray. Set aside.
    • Rinse chicken well. Pat chicken very dry with paper towels; place in a large bowl. Stir together salt, baking powder, coriander, and ginger in a small bowl. Sprinkle spice mixture over chicken; toss well to coat. Arrange chicken, fatty side down, in a single layer on the prepared baking sheet.
    • Bake in preheated oven 25 minutes. Turn chicken over; bake until well browned and crispy, 17 to 20 minutes. Remove baking sheet from oven. Drain chicken on paper towels; let stand 5 minutes.
    • Stir together jelly and vinegar in a large skillet; bring to a boil over high. Cook, stirring occasionally, until jelly melts, about 2 minutes. Add butter, and stir until butter melts, 30 seconds. Add chicken; toss well to coat, and remove from heat.
