Ingredients

  • 2 Pounds chicken wings
  • 1 Cup apricot preserves
  • 2 Tablespoons apple cider vinegar
  • 2 Teaspoons hot pepper sauce
  • 1 Teaspoon chile powder
  • 1 clove garlic, minced

Directions

Cut the chicken wings into 3 sections and discard the wing tips. In a small bowl, combine the remaining ingredients. Pour ½ cup into a large resealable plastic bag. Add the chicken and seal the bag to turn to coat. Refrigerate for 4 hours or overnight. Cover and refrigerate the remaining marinade.

Preheat the oven to 400 degrees.

Drain and discard the marinade. Place the wings in a greased, foil-lined 15-by-10-by-1-inch baking pan. Bake for 30-35 minutes or until juices run clear, turning and basting occasionally with remaining marinade.

Apricot Shopping Tip

Buying fruits in season when they are at the peak of their freshness make for great tasting food and can save you money.

Apricot Cooking Tip

Don’t throw out your overripe fruit – instead blend into a smoothie or salad dressing, add to muffin batter, bake into a cobbler, or boil down with sugar and a little lemon juice to make jam.
