40 chicken drummette or winglet pieces or 20 wings, tips cut off and cut into 2 pieces
1 cup hot sauce (tabasco, red hot)
1/4 cup red pepper jelly, melted
1 tbsp hot pepper flakes
garlic powder


Preheat oven to 400F.

Dry wings and arrange evenly on a broiler pan sprayed with cooking spray. Line bottom of pan with foil.

Sprinkle wings generously with garlic powder and pepper.

Bake on middle rack for 1/2 hour, turning once and rearranging on pan twice to cook evenly. Sprinkle with additional garlic powder and pepper turning once.

Remove from oven and place in a large bowl. Combine sauce ingredients and pour over chicken, stirring to coat.

Return wings to oven. Cook for another halh hour, turning once and pouring any remaining sauce carefully over.

Serve on a lettuce-lined platter with slices of fresh tomato and cucumber around edges. Serve with bleu cheese dressing for dipping or ranch dressing with a clove of fresh garlic crushed into it that has been refrigerated for the cooking period.

This recipe was created in response to a plea from my husband, who could never find take-out hot wings that were hot enough for him. (I have made far hotter, which he loves, but I can't eat!)
This recipe is for 4 appetizer servings, or one meal. (as in a wife and a verrry hungry hubbie!)
