2
lb chicken wings
5
teaspoons canola oil
1
teaspoon salt
1/2
teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
1
cup apple jelly
1/3
cup bourbon
3
tablespoons packed brown sugar
2
cloves garlic, finely chopped
1/4
teaspoon ground red pepper (cayenne)
  1. Heat oven to 400°F. Line 15x10x1-inch pan with foil. Cut each chicken wing at joints to make 3 pieces; discard tip.
  2. In large bowl, toss chicken with 2 teaspoons of the oil, the salt and black pepper. Place chicken in pan. Bake uncovered 50 minutes.
  3. Meanwhile, in 1-quart saucepan, mix apple jelly, bourbon, brown sugar, garlic, red pepper and remaining 3 teaspoons oil. Heat to boiling over medium-high heat; reduce heat. Simmer 5 to 8 minutes, stirring occasionally, until thickened. Remove from heat.
  4. Remove chicken from oven. Drizzle half of the sauce over chicken; turn to coat with sauce.
  5. Bake 8 to 10 minutes longer or until chicken is no longer pink in center. Serve chicken wings with remaining sauce.
