Description

What is better than a combination of sweet and spicy? It’s honestly the best combination of flavors that will every hit your palate. First you taste sweet, then the hot hits you, what a wonderful surprise.

Guys love eating chicken wings cause it brings them back to their caveman, eating-with-their-hands days.

Gals love these wings, cause they’re sweet and spicy. Kinda like Antonio Banderas!

Ingredients

  • 20 whole Chicken Mini Drummettes
  • 1 cup Seedless Raspberry Jam
  • 1-½ Tablespoon Honey
  • 4 ounces, weight Can Diced Jalapenos
  • 4 Tablespoons Butter (1/2 Stick)
  • 1 Tablespoon Worcestershire Sauce

Preparation

Note: I bought the little chicken drummies, but feel free to use both chicken drummies and chicken wings. After all, they ARE called chicken “wings”. It’s just a personal preference.

Preheat your oven to 400 degrees (F).

In a small saucepan on medium heat, place the seedless raspberry jam, honey and the small can of diced jalapenos. Stir to combine and let it sit in the saucepan on low to get all sticky, sweet and spicy. Just like Antonio.

Take your large pot, and put in the half stick of butter and 1 Tablespoon of Worcestershire Sauce and turn your stove up to level 9, just below high.

Get that butter and Worcestershire all melted and hot.

Once the butter is all melted, place just half (10) of your chicken drummies in the butter. I only do 10 at a time, cause you don’t want them to get all crowded.

Use your tongs to gently place your drummies in the butter, this stuff will splatter and totally ruin your weekend.

With your tongs, get the chicken all coated with the butter. Leave them to saute for just about 5 minutes.

You are not totally cooking them, just getting them warm and coating them with the butter mixture.

Once they are all warm and coated, about 5 minutes, take the 10 drummies out and place them in a large bowl to hang out.

Now take your other 10 drummies and with your tongs, place the last 10 in the pot with the butter and Worcestershire. Toss and do the same with those as you did the first 10.

When those are done, place them in the large bowl with their other friends.

Now take the raspberry jalapeno mixture off the stove, and pour all of it into the waiting drummies.

Mix the drummies all around with the sauce. They are so excited to be sweet and spicy like Mr. Banderas.

Now get out your jelly roll pan or 1/4 sheet pan, the one with sides, and spray it with Pam.

Take your tongs and place the drummies in the pan. Take a large spoon, and gently pour all the raspberry jalapeno sauce over each of the drummies, coating them all the way.

Now pop these sweeties in the oven for about 35 minutes. Keep checking them, cause you are going to flip them with your tongs halfway through.

You’ll know when they are done. Both sides will look wonderfully golden. The entire cooking process should be about 40 minutes. Could be 30 depending on your oven, so just keep checking.

Next thing you know, you won’t be calling them “little drummies” anymore.

They will be all grown up, sweet and spicy just like their idol, Antonio Banderas (said in the most wonderful sultry Latin American accent of course).

HINT:
Be sure to let them sit for about 15 minutes before you dive into them. They are way better when left to get all sticky and wonderful for about 15 minutes or more before eating them.

Janetinmaine – No, the jalapenos in the can are not pickled. The can actually says fire roasted I believe. I got them in the Mexican section of the grocery store, next to the green chiles. I am not sure if pickled jalapenos will give it the kick and spice, but if they are spicy, then I’m sure you could use those too!

REE – Thanks for the comment! I’m Faclempt!

These were really good! I have to admit, I didn’t do the first steps with the butter, I just used the raspberry jalepeno mixture as a glaze about a halfway through the cooking time on my oven baked wings. I used mild green chilis in place of the fire roasted jalepenos, because thats what I had on hand – but these would be deliciously spicy as written.
