Fruity Chicken Wings

By Paula Deen


Difficulty: Easy

Prep time: 10 minutes

Cook time: 10 minutes

Servings: 10


  • 1 lb washed thoroughly chicken wings
  • salt
  • 2 sticks butter
  • 1 (10 oz) jar pepper jelly


Using a fryer or a large pot, heat oil to 350 °F.

Cut the chicken wings at the joint to yield a wingette and drumette from each wing. Season wings with salt. Deep fry the wings until golden and crispy, approximately 12-15 minutes.

In a medium saucepan over medium-low heat, melt butter. Add pepper jelly and continually whisk for 5-10 minutes or until it lightly bubbles. Turn heat down to low and allow to simmer as wings continue to cook. When wings are ready, add directly to pan and toss.

Serve immediately with blue cheese and carrots or celery.
