  • 4 pounds - chicken wings
  • 2 tablespoons - cooking oil (canola, olive, grapeseed)
  • 1 tablespoons - salt
  • 1 teaspoons - pepper
  • Chipotle-Orange Glaze
  • 1 cups - thawed frozen orange juice concentrate (no calcium added)
  • 1 teaspoons - chipotle chili powder
  • - orange zest, optional, for topping
  • Pepperoni Pizza Glaze
  • 3/4 cups - tomato paste
  • 1/4 cups - olive oil
  • 1 cups - grated mozzarella, for adding while baking
  • 3/4 cups - diced pepperoni, for adding while baking
  • Cherry-Lime Glaze
  • 1 cups - cherry jam
  • 2 tablespoons - fresh lime juice
  • - lime zest or lime wedges, optional, for garnish
  • Smokin' Hot Glaze
  • 1 cups - red pepper jelly
  • 1 teaspoons - smoked paprika
  • - chopped fresh jalapeno, optional, for garnish
  • Teriyaki-Ginger Glaze
  • 1 cups - thick teriyaki sauce
  • 1 teaspoons - grated fresh ginger
  • - sesame seeds, optional, for garnish
  • Greek Honey-Lemon Glaze
  • 1 cups - honey
  • 1/4 cups - fresh lemon juice
  • - lemon zest, lemon wedges and fresh oregano, optional, for topping and garnish
  • Pomegranate-Coriander
  • 1 cups - pomegranate molasses
  • 1 tablespoons - ground coriander
  • 1 tablespoons - sugar
  • - pomegranate seeds, optional, for topping or garnish
  • Directions:

    Position oven rack in top third of oven; preheat to 450 degrees F. Line a large rimmed baking sheet with aluminum foil. Set a wire rack inside the baking sheet and coat with cooking spray.

    Cut off and discard wingtips from chicken wings; separate the flats (parts that don't look like drumsticks) from the drumettes and pat dry.

    In a large bowl, toss wings with cooking oil, salt and pepper. Arrange on prepared rack in a single layer. Bake until skin is crispy, about 45 minutes.

    Meanwhile, in a large bowl, combine glaze ingredients from your chosen flavor combo (for pepperoni pizza version: mix only the tomato paste and olive oil together). Transfer 1/4 cup of glaze to a small bowl and toss the wings in the remaining glaze to coat them well.

    Arrange wings on rack again in a single layer. (At this point, if making pepperoni pizza flavored wings, press the mozzarella cheese and diced pepperoni onto the top of the wings). Bake until glaze is shiny and browned in spots and chicken is cooked through, about 10 minutes. Season.

    Transfer wings to large platter; dab with reserved glaze, and sprinkle with desired toppings or garnish.
