Peanut butter and jelly wings

 
Peanut butter and jelly is a classic combination that will never go out of style. As a matter of fact, I had a peanut butter and jelly sandwich for breakfast this morning. The creamy, smooth peanut butter paired with sweet yet slightly tart jam is just heaven. Now imagine these flavors on chicken wings. Intrigued? I certainly was when I came across the idea. These easy to make chicken wings will remind you of your childhood favorite in a more grownup fashion…so what are you waiting for?

**Helpful tips and common mistakes

This recipe can be made into a Paleo, gluten-free recipe if you choose to make your own jam. Jam is made from sugar, fruit, and often times, a thickener. If you are sensitive to processed sugar, follow the recipe above to yield a more natural version.

I initially pureed the mix for the jam but I prefer having a chunkier jam. I recommend letting the strawberries slowly break down while cooking on low heat.

sugarless jam 
One hour later, the jam is complete! The consistency of the jam is not as thick as commercial jams but it is suitable for the chicken wings.

When making the marinade for the jam, make sure to use natural peanut butter. What is the difference between natural and regular peanut butter? Natural peanut butter is simply ground peanuts with a hint of salt while the regular version has the addition of sugar. I prefer using natural peanut butter when making peanut-based sauces since I only want the roasted peanut flavor rather than sweet peanut butter. 
 
Some of you may have cringed when reading peanut butter and jelly wings but there are many Asian dishes there utilize peanut as a sauce for chicken and red meat. The addition of jam simply makes the wings slightly sweet while the vinegar adds a tangy element. Try these wings with different jams such as apricot jam, blackberry jam, or grape jam!
