TOTAL TIME: Prep: 20 min. + marinating Cook: 30 min. YIELD:4 servings

Ingredients

  • 2 cups barbecue sauce
  • 2 cloves garlic, finely chopped, divided
  • 2 peaches, peeled, pitted and chopped
  • Salt and pepper
  • 24 chicken wings, separated at the joint and tips discarded
  • 1 cup peach jam, such as Smuckers
  • 1/4 cup apple cider vinegar
  • 2 tablespoons hot sauce, such as Frank’s RedHot, or to taste
  • Scallions, green parts only, thinly sliced, for topping

Directions

  • 1. In a food processor, combine the barbecue sauce and half of the garlic. Add the peaches and process until finely chopped; season with about 1-1/2 teaspoons salt and about 1/4 teaspoon pepper. Reserve 1/2 cup for basting.
  • 2. In a resealable plastic bag, toss together the chicken wings and remaining peach barbecue sauce; refrigerate for about 30 minutes.
  • 3. Meanwhile, combine the peach jam, vinegar, remaining garlic, hot sauce and 1/2 teaspoon salt in a small saucepan. Cook over medium heat until slightly thickened, about 5 minutes; let cool.
  • 4. Drain and discard marinade. Moisten a paper towel with cooking oil; using long-handled tongs, lightly coat the grill rack. Grill chicken wings, covered, over medium heat or broil 4 in. from the heat for 12-16 minutes, turning occasionally.
  • 5. Brush with reserved sauce. Grill or broil, uncovered, 8-10 minutes longer or until juices run clear, basting and turning several times. Top with scallions and serve with peach jam dipping sauce. Yield: 4 servings.
