Datil Pepper Chicken Wings
- 12 chicken wingettes
- 6 ounces (approximately) or 1/2 bottle of CrackerHouse Hot Wing Sauce.
- Datil Pepper Jelly - I apply about 1 tablespoon or so for each wing. You might use a little more or less.
- 3 tablespoons of Olive Oil (you can use butter, but I prefer Olive Oil)
- 1 tablespoon Basil
- 1 package Zesty (or other brand) Italian seasoning. I also like Good Seasons.
- Blue Cheese or Ranch Dressing
- Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
- Place wingettes on a cookie sheet and bake for about 35 minutes.
- While the wingettes are baking, mix the olive oil, CrackerHouse Wing Sauce, Basil and Italian Salad Dressing Seasoning.
- After the first 35 mintues, remove the wingettes, then apply the wing sauce that you have made on the wingettes.
- Place the wingettes back in the oven and bake for about 20 minutes.
- For each wingette, place 1 tablespoon of Datil Pepper Jelly in a separate bowl, For this specific recipe that is 12 tablespoons.
- Place the bowl of Datil Pepper Jelly in the microwave, cover with a paper towel and "nuc" it for about 10 to 15 seconds. You may have to experiment. The idea is to make the jelly more of a liquid.
- Apply Datil Jelly to each wingette. Place the wingettes back in the oven for 15 to 20 minutes.
- Serve with celery and your choice of Blue Cheese or Ranch dressing.
Pepper Jam Sandwiches
- Cut an equal number of slices of Dark Graham bread and White bread. Remove crusts, and spread bread with Creamed butter.
- On one slice of white bread spread the pepper jam, cover with slice of Graham bread, spread with butter and pepper jam. Cover with a slice of white bread.
