24 Nov Peanut Butter & Vineyard Fire Hot Wings
Peanut butter and jelly sandwiches, a fond childhood memory for many. What if we took that same basic idea and adapted it into spicy chicken wings?

This recipe may sound a bit wacky, but it works and its delicious!
And heads up, vegetarian friends, this also works with tofu!
Here’s what you need to make them:
For the chicken:
1 T. Vegetable Oil
Salt, pepper and cayenne pepper to taste
1/4 C. Peanut Butter
2 T. soy sauce
1/8 cup rice vinegar
Sriracha hot sauce to taste
2 cloves crushed garlic
1/2 t. red chili flakes
1 T. toasted sesame oil
While your wings are roasting, mix up your sauce.
Put all the sauce ingredients in a microwave safe measuring cup or bowl and microwave it for 20-30 seconds to get the peanut butter and jelly a bit more mixable. Whisk together.

When the wings are done, toss them with the sauce and put them back ion the rack on the sheet pan and into the oven for 5-10 minutes to caramelize. This is not the time to walk away, they can burn pretty quickly.
|Really, no more beer for you if you think this is blurry!|
When they are caramelized, take them out and if you like your wings swimming like we do, toss them again in the sauce and serve.
