3-4 lbs. segmented chicken wings
1 tbsp paprika
1/2 tsp cayenne pepper
1 tsp ginger
1 tsp black pepper
1/2 tsp cinnamon
1/3 cup ketchup
1 cup apple cider
1/4 cup apple cider vinegar
2 tbsp peach jam or peach jelly
2 tbsp brown sugar
In a pot, on low heat, bring all of the ingredients for the sauce to a light simmer.
Simmer for 20 minutes.
Allow sauce to cool, then refrigerate.
In a bowl, mix all ingredients for rub.
Place segmented wings into a large freezer bag or large bowl.
Cover wings with rub, and evenly coat the wings.
Refrigerate wings, and let the rub work it’s magic for a minimum of 3 hours.
Pre-heat grill to medium-high heat (400 degrees).
Place wings on a well oiled grill, and cook for 12-16 minutes. Turn occasionally.
In a small pot or BBQ friendly container, placed on the grill. Warm your apple cider sauce.
During the last 2-3 minutes, brush some sauce on the wings.
Once the wings are ready, place them in a large bowl, and pour remaining sauce
over the wings. Evenly coat the wings and serve.
* If you are going to toss the wings in the sauce, BE CAREFUL, this sauce is very sticky
and the wings will stick together as you try to toss the wings in the bowl.
And there you have it… Apple Cider Chicken Wings! These are so good!
