  • 3-4 pounds chicken wings flats and drumettes separated, tips saved to make stock
  • sauce from below

For the sauce

  • 1 tablespoon vegetable oil
  • 1 cup onion chopped
  • 1 tablespoon garlic minced
  • ¼ cup chili sauce
  • 10 ounces pepper jelly
  • ½ tablespoon apple cider vinegar
  • 1 dash Worcestershire sauce
  • 1 tablespoon Creole mustard
  • 1 tablespoon light brown sugar
  • 1 teaspoon liquid smoke see instructions, you might want to start with 1/2 teaspoon and taste it first


For the sauce

  • Heat the oil in a medium saucepan over medium heat.
  • Add the onion. Sauté for about 10 minutes or until softened and lightly browned.
  • Add the garlic and chili sauce. Stir and cook another minute.
  • Add remaining ingredients. I recommend using all of the liquid smoke, but you can start with half and taste to see if it's to your liking.
