Chicken wings and I go together like bread and truffle butter. I enjoy them baked, fried or grilled, but the most important component is the sauce. My favorite combination is sweet heat and my recipe for peach hot wings is sure to tickle your taste buds and put a smile on your face.
This recipe was inspired by an episode I saw a few years ago on the Food Network from Down Home with the Neelys. I changed the recipe a bit and added a fun ingredient in honor of The Kentucky Derby…..Peach Wheat Beer from Alltech Brewing in Kentucky. The addition of the beer in the wing sauce gives the flavor more dimension and pairs well with poultry. I like to make extra sauce and use it in other chicken recipes as well as a pork marinade.
Since I work for a restaurant and wanted to feature some special dishes for the Kentucky Derby, I made this sauce at the restaurant and fried the wings. When I make wings at home, I prefer baking or grilling, but you can do whatever you prefer.
I do not want to sound too cliche but these wings ARE finger lickin’ good. You can also alter the recipe for the different seasons with flavors such as blueberry, strawberry and even pumpkin. During football season, I play around with different wing recipes and enjoy savoring my creations.
This sauce is so simple, all you need is hot sauce (I prefer Sriracha), peach preserves, any peach beer, honey, garlic, butter and soy sauce. You can wow your guests at your next get together with these wings.
I hope you have an AMAZING Sunday and I would like to wish a very Happy Mother’s Day to all of the moms out there that work so hard to make life a little more delicious for our families. If you are still not sure what to make for dinner tonight, I am sure some of these recipes below from the Sunday Supper Family will provide plenty of inspiration.
- Peanut oil, for frying
- 1 teaspoon Kosher salt
- 1 teaspoon freshly ground pepper
- 3 pounds chicken wings, cut at joint
- 1 stick butter
- 4 cloves garlic, chopped
- 1 cup peach preserves
- 3/4 cup peach beer (I used Kentucky Peach Wheat)
- 1/2 cup Sriracha
- 1 tablespoon soy sauce
- 1 tablespoon honey
- Fresh cilantro, chopped, for garnish
- Preheat deep fryer with peanut oil to 350 degrees F.
- Mix the 2 teaspoons salt and pepper together in a small bowl.
- Add chicken wings and toss to coat.
- Cook's Note: Let wings sit out at room temperature while you make the sauce to allow them time to absorb the seasonings.
- Melt the butter in medium saucepan over medium heat with the garlic.
- Stir in peach preserves, beer, hot sauce, honey, and soy sauce. Cook until syrupy and thick, about 5 minutes. Transfer to a large bowl.
- Add the wings to the deep fryer and fry until cooked through and golden and crisp, 12 to 15 minutes. You will need to do this in 2 batches so you don't overcrowd your fryer.
- Remove the wings from the fryer and drain on a paper towel-lined baking tray.
- Add the fried wings to the large bowl of sauce and toss until well combined and wings are well coated. Using a slotted spoon, remove the wings to a platter, top with freshly chopped cilantro and serve immediately.
