Strawberry Chipotle Chicken Wings

Our family enjoys the raspberry chipotle wings so much at My Way Tavern in Holly Springs we had to see if we could re-create it using fresh NC Strawberries. Serve with celery, lemon wedges and ranch or blue cheese dressing. This is a great way to serve wings in the spring time.

lb. chicken wings
lb. NC strawberries, chopped
Tbsp. olive oil
large jalapeno peppers, seeded and diced
cloves garlic, minced
tsp. adobo sauce
cup apple cider vinegar
tsp. salt
cup brown sugar
cup granulated sugar


Season chicken wings with salt and pepper. Place chicken wings on a baking sheet in a single layer. Bake at 450 degrees for 45 minutes.

Heat olive oil in a skillet over medium heat. Stir in jalapenos; cook until tender, about 5 minutes. Mix in garlic, and adobo sauce; bring to a simmer. Stir the strawberries into the sauce; cook until soft, about 3-5 minutes. Stir in the vinegar, salt, brown sugar and white sugar. Mix well. Simmer until thickened and reduced by half about 15 minutes. You can mash the berries with hand chopper or fork to break them up to desired size. Transfer sauce to a large heatproof bowl; add cooked wings and toss.
