Making the Chili Pineapple Sauce
In a small bowl, mix together 1 jar of Chugwater Chili Red Pepper Jelly, ½ cup pineapple juice, 2 tablespoons of Chugwater Chili Seasoning(if you want them spicier use our Chugwater Chili Hot Chili Seasoning), and 2 tablespoons of honey. Blend together. Note: This sauce tends to be thinner. If you want to thicken the sauce you can add a little cornstarch (a teaspoon or two) to the sauce but you want to make sure it is well blended.
Baking the Chicken Wings
Toss 1 pound of chicken wings with 1/2 of the chili pineapple sauce until the wings are coated. If you want the sauce to marinate on the wings you can let them sit in the sauce for 30 minutes to an hour. This helps the seasoning soak into the meat. It is up to you. If you are in a hurry you can start cooking right away and baste more sauce on the wings as they cook.
Place the seasoned chicken wings in a baking dish or on a cookie sheet that has been lined with foil and sprayed with cooking spray (this helps make clean up easier).
Bake at 400 degrees for 30 minutes flip and baste with remaining sauce. Then cook for another 30 minutes or until the wings are fully cooked with no pink in the middle and start to brown on the outside.
