Raspberry Chipotle-Glazed Chicken Wings

Posted Aug 15 2012 6:10am

Yesterday I made chicken wings!

What can I say? I had a craving. The boneless skinless buffalo wings from Chili’s were always my favorite restaurant meal as a kid {classy!}, and thus chicken wings have always held a special spot in my heart. I may or may not treat myself to those Chili’s wings whenever I travel alone and need a quick airport meal. In fact, I am traveling today and may or may not be sitting at Chili’s at this very moment, licking my chicken winged fingers.

Just kidding.


These wings aren’t exactly like buffalo wings, though, because they combine the sweetness of raspberry jam with spicy chipotle pepper sauce. They are baked rather than fried, and perfect for both game day parties {wahoo! football season is back!} and casual dinners at home. In fact, Adam and I enjoyed these wings last night with a side of macaroni and cheese and sweet potato fries. You can’t beat it!

All you need to make these finger lickin’ beauties is raspberry jam, butter, chipotle peppers in adobo sauce and hot sauce. Plus chicken wings of course!

In this recipe, I am using Tabasco’s newest product, raspberry chipotle hot sauce, as I am working on developing some recipes for the brand. Only recently was I made aware that this new hot sauce isn’t available at the grocery store just yet {just online for right now!} so today I will be giving away five bottles of Tabasco Raspberry Chipotle sauce at the end of this post. Hooray!

I apologize for using an ingredient that isn’t as readily accessible as I thought—-but you could also totally substitute the raspberry chipotle sauce for regular hot sauce in this recipe.

So now let’s talk about wings for a sec. I bought these from Whole Foods but you can get them anywhere. If you don’t see them out at the store, ask the butcher!

When preparing chicken wings, you must chop off ze wing tip first, like so:

It should chop right off, no problem! Now you are good to go! {if you bake/fry chicken wings with wing tip still on, they will burn}

The wings are baked for 40 minutes and then dunked into a sweet-spicy-buttery-love sauce. They are positively addicting, so watch out!

And like I said, I’ll be giving away five bottles of Tabasco Raspberry Chipotle today! If you’d like to win a bottle, just leave a comment on this post and I will pick five spicy winners tonight at 10pm PST.

Raspberry Chipotle-Glazed Chicken Wings

serves 4-6


2 1/2 – 3 lbs chicken wings

1 stick butter

2 tbsp good quality raspberry jam

3 tsp Raspberry Chipotle Tabasco sauce {or regular Tabasco sauce}

2 tbsp adobo sauce {from a can of chipotle peppers in adobo sauce}

1/2 tsp salt

pinch of cayenne pepper

cooking spray


Preheat your oven to 425.

Prepare your chicken wings by slicing off the wing tip {as demonstrated in above photo}. Leave chicken skin on! Place chicken wings on two baking sheets and lightly spray wings with cooking spray. Bake for 20 minutes then flip wings and bake for another 20 minutes.

While the wings are baking, prepare the sauce. In a small saucepan over medium heat, melt the butter and whisk in the raspberry jam, adobo sauce, hot sauce, salt and a small pinch of cayenne pepper. Whisk until smooth and combined.

Remove baked wings from oven and dip each wing in sauce with tongs. Shake off excess sauce and place wings on a platter for serving.


1 hour
