Apricot-Glazed Wings

I was a little skeptical about these as I was throwing random ingredients from my fridge/pantry into these.  But, you know what?!  These were amazing!  You know the Bourbon Chicken they hand out samples of in the food court at the mall?  They tasted a lot like that, just with a whole lot less fat.  (No offense if you own one of those places!)  They were fallin'-off-the-bone-finger-lickin'-good!!!!

These wings would be an amazing appetizer at your next gathering.  Everyone will wonder what in the world you used to make them taste so good.  You don't have to tell them ;)  Enjoy these!!!!!

P.S.  My husband and I finished almost the entire 4 lbs. of wings by ourselves......oops! ;)

Apricot-Glazed Wings

4 lbs. Wings, tips removed and cut at the joint (see pics below)
12 oz. Apricot Preserves
1/4 cup Honey Catalina Dressing
2 Tbsp. Honey Mustard
2 Tbsp. Barbeque Sauce
1 tsp. Lime Juice
4 dashed hot sauce
1 small onion, minced
salt, pepper, garlic powder

You've saved yourself some money buying a package of wings that need to be cut, so don't fret!  I'll help you get through this.  It's simple.
First, you're going to remove the wing tip.  If the knife doesn't go through easily, you're not on the joint, so just move your knife over a bit.
You are going to discard that part.
Next, you're going to section the wing at the next joint like this.
Again, if your knife doesn't slide right through, move it over a bit.
You're done! Easy enough, right?!

Put your wing pieces onto a baking sheet and sprinkle both sides with salt, pepper and garlic powder.
Put them under the broiler for 8 minutes on each side.

While you're wings are broiling, mix together your sauce.  In a mixing bowl, mix together the Apricot Preserves, Honey Catalina Dressing, Honey Mustard, BBQ sauce, lime juice, hot sauce and onion.

When your wings are browned under the broiler, place them into your crock.
Pour the sauce over the top.
Use your tongs and "toss" the wings around to make sure and coat all your little wings with the sauce.
Cook on LOW for 4-6 hours, or on HIGH for 2-3 hours.

  1. Got these in the pot ready for tomorrow - am marinating them in their sauce first and skipping the broiler part due to time constraints.

  2. That looks yumola. I can't wait to make them. Thanks for the recipe.
