Cranberry Glazed Chili Chicken Wings
Simmer sweet chili sauce, tart cranberries and mellow onions to make these Cranberry Glazed Chili Chicken Wings for your next party.
Servings 24 pieces
- 2 lbs chicken wings split
- 1 tbsp oil
- salt and pepper
- 8 oz cranberries fresh (or frozen and thawed)
- 1/2 cup sweet chili sauce
- 1/2 cups water
- 4 green onions (scallions) chopped
Preheat the broiler. Toss the split chicken wings in oil and sprinkle with salt and pepper.
Broil about 4 inches from the heat until crispy and brown (about 10 -12 min.) Remove from oven and flip the wings over. Broil the other side for about 8 min.
While wings are broiling, put the cranberries into a food processor and pulse until finely chopped.
In a large skillet, combine the cranberries, chili sauce, water and 2 of the scallions. Bring to a boil, then reduce the heat and simmer until the sauce has thickened.
Remove from heat and strain the sauce through a sieve into a medium bowl, pressing to release as much liquid as possible. Return the liquid to the skillet and simmer until the sauce has reduced and become a thick and shiny glaze.
Toss the wings in the glaze. Return to a baking sheet and broil once again, for 3 - 5 minutes, watching carefully to avoid burning.
Garnish with the remaining chopped scallions and serve hot.
