This recipe has so many varied ingredients. Blood Orange Fused Olive Oil is paired with bourbon, orange blossom honey, chili powder, and of all things, a little cinnamon to create a delicious and VERY sticky glaze.
2 lbs. chicken wings, separated and tips removed
salt and pepper
1/4 cup Blood Orange Fused Olive Oil
1/4 cup your favorite bourbon
2 T. orange blossom honey
1 T. soy sauce
1 t. chili powder
1/4 t. dried chili flakes
1/4 t. ground cinnamon
juice of one lemon
Rinse wings and pat them dry with a paper towel. Season with salt and pepper.
In a large skillet, add Blood Orange Olive Oil over medium high heat. Brown chicken in batches, placing on a plate while you cook the remaining wings.
Lower heat to medium low. Add bourbon to skillet and let cook for 2 - 3 minutes, stirring constantly. Add remaining ingredients, stirring frequently, and allow the mixture to begin to thicken.
Return the chicken wings to the skillet, turning to coat them completely. Let chicken finish cooking while they glaze. The internal temperature of the chicken should reach 165 degrees F. before you remove from heat.
Place the wings on a serving tray and pour remaining glaze over wings. Serve immediately.
