Grilled chicken wings with a raspberry balsamic glaze

post #1 of 9
Thread Starter 

Hey Folks!

 

I can't remember where I found this recipe, but I am telling you, this glaze is a real something! A combination of the sweetness of raspberries with acidity of balsamic vinegar, some extra heat of chili added ... it's just good!

 

 

So:

  • 10 chicken wings, tips removed, cut in half
  • 1/2 tbsp coarse salt
  • 1/2 tbsp ground black pepper
  • 1/2 tbsp granulated garlic
  • 3-4 tbsp extra virgin olive oil

 

For the glaze:

  • 3/4 cup raspberry jam or preserves
  • 1/4 cup balsamic vinegar
  • 1 tsp fresh lemon juice 
  • 1/2 tsp chili powder, for that extra kick

 

Basically, I don't marinate the wings... Brush with olive oil, season with salt & pepper, and then - with the granulated garlic. It gives a really nice garlicky aroma, but without actually overloading your taste buds with the garlic taste. 

 

Glaze - simply whisk all the ingredients in the bowl until blended... If the raspberry jam gives you a hard time, simply heat it for 30 seconds in a microwave, and it'll behave :icon_biggrin:.

 

If you grill the wings - it's a direct grilling on medium heat, for total time of 20 minutes, turning 3 times (i.e. each side faces the fire 2 times). Brush generously with a glaze during the last 5-7 minutes of grilling.

 

If you smoke them - simply go with your favorite wings smoking method and brush with the glaze about 30 minutes before you plan to take the wings out of the smoker.

 

Enjoy! :)

You had me with Balsamic...great addition to the flavor profile for grilling or smoking...with Raspberry? Hmm, sounds interesting, especially with a little kick from crushed chilies or red peppers. Looks tasty!!!

 

Thanks for sharing!!!

We do glaze that is similar, we use a balsamic reduction called Fig and Fire. It's a great sweet heat that is made with dogs and Habaneros, add strawberry, raspberry, blueberry, oh yeah!

Oh, I have no doubt it is unique. If you haven't tried it yet, blueberry-based rubs, (and from what I've read, glazes and sauces) are quite good with poultry as well. I've been using blueberry, apple and tart cherries in dry rubs on pork and chicken for quite a while now, usually in combination with red bell peppers. Anything fruit-based can really add a new dimension. PM me if you're interested in recipes...or check my signature line...there are a few in there as well.

 

Those wings look even more mouth-watering today....mmm-mmm-mmm!!!

Eric,

 

Wow! I gonna have to spend some time on your signature line :).

 

Blueberries are quite rare down here - you can get them only frozen and even that not always... But I most definitely agree with you about the new dimension. I love also incorporating citrus flavour - I will have to post later on my tangerine glaze, or you can check the smoked honey-orange salmon I posted couple of weeks ago...
