Orange-Pecan Hot Wings Recipe

We like to use oranges and orange juice in lots of different ways—we even have an orange tree in our backyard. These chicken wings are a fun appetizer that our friends are very fond of. —June Jones, Hudson, Florida
TOTAL TIME: Prep: 25 min. Bake: 55 min. YIELD:8-10 servings

Ingredients

  • 3 pounds whole chicken wings
  • 3 eggs
  • 1 can (6 ounces) frozen orange juice concentrate, thawed
  • 2 tablespoons water
  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 cup finely chopped pecans
  • 1/2 cup butter, melted
  • RED HOT SAUCE:
  • 2 cups ketchup
  • 3/4 cup packed brown sugar
  • 2 to 3 tablespoons hot pepper sauce

Directions

  • 1. Cut chicken wings into three pieces; discard wing tips.
  • 2. In a bowl, whisk eggs, orange juice concentrate and water. In another bowl or a resealable plastic bag, combine flour and pecans. Dip wings in egg mixture, then roll or toss in flour mixture.
  • 3. Pour butter into a 15-in. x 10-in. x 1-in. baking pan. Arrange wings in a single layer in pan. Bake, uncovered, at 375° for 25 minutes.
  • 4. Meanwhile, combine sauce ingredients. Spoon half over the wings; turn. Top with remaining sauce. Bake 30 minutes longer or until meat juices run clear. Yield: 8-10 servings.

"These have been a family favorite for years. I do a few things differently now that I've made them for a while but it's great as is. Pecans should be finely minced and the flour should not be too heavily applied. More pecans than flour rather. Add a little orange zest and juice to your sauce for extra flavor. Yummy!"
