Hi Everyone,

I prepared Apple Jalapeno Chicken Wings and I just wanted to share this quick recipe with you. This recipe is good for a no fuss weeknight meal, served with a salad or as an appetizer when you have guests.

Wait until you hear how I found this recipe…

A few years back, as one of my birthday gifts, my husband took me to the Stonewall Kitchen Headquarters in York, Maine to their Cooking School for cooking classes.

I always wanted to go and Bob made it happen.

The classes are demonstration only, not hands on. (I was very grateful for this because I am not sure my knife skills are up to par with the chefs).

The class Bob signed me up for included Crustless Quiche, Pasta Primavera, Apple Jalapeno Chicken Wings plus various desserts.

After the demonstration, everyone is handed a recipe booklet with the days recipes and invited to gather around for lunch to sample everything that was prepared. I met a great group of people and had a wonderful experience.

We not only had a great group, we also had a wonderful chef who was really a joy to watch and listen to. If it wasn’t so far a trip for me, I would have loved to attend another class of hers.

If you ever have the opportunity to attend a cooking class, by all means take it. It doesn’t have to be Stonewall Kitchen in York Maine, but find a local class. Sur La Table has cooking classes all the time. It truly is a lot of fun and all the chefs give you their secret culinary tips.

I know the sign says, “Spring is Here”, but it was still a little cool for Spring in Maine,  in April.

The Company Store and Cafe is where you can buy all Stonewall Kitchen products and have a great lunch or snack.

And now for the recipe…

Apple Jalapeno Chicken Wings

I just LOVE five ingredient recipes.

2016-04-27 15.26.22- INGREDIENTS

Ingredients:

  • 1 cup Stonewall Kitchen Apple Jalapeno Jelly
  • ½ cup water
  • ¼- ½ cup bourbon (I used 1/2 cup)
  • 2 Tbsp. butter
  • 2 pounds chicken wings

Directions:

  1. In a food processor, puree the Stonewall Kitchen Apple Jalapeno Jelly.
  2. In a large skillet place the Stonewall Kitchen Apple Jalapeno Jelly, water, bourbon, and butter over medium heat. When melted stir until uniform.
  3. Add the chicken wings. Cover and simmer 15 minutes. Remove lid and simmer another 30 minutes, turning the wings several times. The sauce should thicken, but do not allow to burn.
  4. Remove wings and finish under the broiler until golden brown. Serve hot with reserved sauce from skillet.

And that is all there is to it. This is great if you just want a change from the usual Buffalo wing sauce.
