Summary: Grown up Hot Wings- not for the kiddos, these are for the ones that like it “The Hotter the Better” but it’s the good tasty heat that sneaks up from behind with a sweet citrus glaze that just makes it awesomeness!!

Ingredients

  • 1 1/2 lb frozen wings- thawed
  • 1/3 cup Orange marmalade
  • 1/4 cup Orange juice prepared
  • 1 Habanero peppers, or Scotch Bonnet fine diced and seeded (where gloves and do not touch eyes)

  • 3 tablespoons lime juice
  • 1 3/4 cups hot sauce like Franks Wing Sauce or your preference

Instructions

  1. Combine orange marmalade, orange juice and habanero, garlic, lime juice and hot sauce in a small nonstick saucepan and whisk to blend. Bring mixture to a boil; reduce heat and simmer for a few minutes or until reduced to a glaze-like consistency. Hold hot above 140°F.
