How to make sticky chicken wings with chutney

The marinade in this recipe is perfect for both chicken wings or drumsticks. The choice is yours.

Both are small and easy to eat. The tanginess of the glaze is great on either white or dark meat.

The base of the marinade comes from a combination of soy sauce, lemon, onion and garlic.Lemon juice, garlic, onions and soy sauce.

Apricot jam enhances the flavor profile to give a bit of sweetness to the wings.apricots and apricot jam in a jar with a spoon.

The secret ingredient in the glaze for these sticky wings is chutney. It adds a bit of spice and a savory note to the flavor that is lovely. 

If you can find some apricot chutney, that would be perfect but any fruit flavored chutney will work just fine.Apricot chutney in a wooden bowl with spoon, parsley and apricot.

Marinating the chicken wings

All of the marinade ingredients are placed in a bowl and combined well until the mixture is smooth. (An immersion blender will make the marinade really smooth in just a minute or two before you add it to the wings.)

Place the chicken wings in an oven safe dish and marinate for an hour to let the flavors combine. Sesame seeds adds a little bit of extra texture to the wings. chciken wings marinating in a bowl with sesame seeds.

Cook the sticky wings in a preheated 350°F oven for one hour until done.

I like to cook these sticky chicken wings in the oven but you can also grill the wings on a medium heat grill till done, if you wish.

Gather your friends for Super Bowl Sunday (it’s also celebrated each year as Super Chicken Wing Sunday!) or stock the back of your car for a tailgate party any time of the year. This party food recipe won’t last long!
