Apricot Chicken Wings

Here is a recipe that I developed for Taste of Home Magazine that has been published in several of their cookbooks, including Taste of Home Christmas 1999. These simple wings are easy to whip up for a holiday gathering or a quick weekend snack. Let me know how you like them!



2 pounds chicken wings
1 cup apricot preserves
2 tablespoons cider vinegar
2 teaspoons hot pepper sauce
1 teaspoon chili powder
1 garlic clove, minced


Cut chicken wings into three sections; discard wing tips. In a small bowl, combine the remaining ingredients; pour 1/2 cup into a large resealable plastic bag; add chicken. Seal bag and turn to coat. Refrigerate for 4 hours or overnight. Cover and refrigerate remaining marinade.
Drain and discard marinade. Place wings in a greased foil-lined 15-in. x 10-in. x 1-in. baking pan. Bake at 400° for 30-35 minutes or until juices run clear, turning and basting occasionally with remaining marinade. Yield: 2 dozen.
