My father and husband love bourbon flavor, so I add it to tangy wings baked in peach preserves. Stand back and watch these wings fly. —Christine Winston, Richmond, Virginia

  • 1 cup peach preserves
  • 2 tablespoons brown sugar
  • 2 garlic cloves, minced
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 cup white vinegar
  • 1/4 cup bourbon
  • 2 teaspoons cornstarch
  • 1 tablespoon water
  • 4 pounds chicken wings


  1. Preheat oven to 450°. Place preserves, brown sugar, garlic and salt in a food processor; process until blended. Transfer to a small saucepan. Add vinegar and bourbon; bring to a boil. Reduce heat; simmer, uncovered, 4-6 minutes or until slightly thickened.
  2. In a small bowl, mix cornstarch and water until smooth; stir into preserve mixture. Return to a boil, stirring constantly; cook and stir 1-2 minutes or until thickened. Reserve 1/2 cup sauce for serving.
  3. Using a sharp knife, cut through the two wing joints; discard wing tips. Place remaining wing pieces in a foil-lined 15x10x1-in. baking pan. Bake 30-35 minutes or until juices run clear, turning every 10 minutes and brushing with remaining sauce. Increase oven setting to broil.
  4. Broil 4-6 in. from heat 2-3 minutes on each side or until golden brown. Serve with reserved sauce.
