  • 1 cup apricot preserves
  • 1/8 cup crystallized ginger
  • 2 large cloves garlic (smashed and peeled)
  • 1/2 teaspoon sea salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper (or more if like it spicy)
  • 1/4 cup white vinegar
  • 3 pounds chicken wings


  • Preheat oven to 450 degrees. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper or foil, and coat with olive oil spray. Set aside.
  • Combine the preserves, ginger, garlic, salt, and cayenne pepper in a food processor.
  • Process/Pulse until the ginger and garlic are finely chopped. Stir in the vinegar (remove the blade first).
  • Cut the wings at the joints and discard the tips.
  • Place the wings on the prepared baking sheet. Brush with 1/2 of the glaze mixture.
  • Return to the oven and bake for an additional 15 minutes. Grab some napkins and a drink and dig in!


  • Some stores sell bags of drumettes and/or wings that have already been separated. This is a time saver if you can find them.
  • I used Bonne Maman Apricot Preserves.
  • Crystallized ginger can usually be found in the bulk bin aisle or the baking section.
  • Serving size is based on 4 pieces per person. 3 pounds of chicken wings can vary between 13 to 17. It all depends on the size of the individual wings that are included in the package
