Naturally, growing up on a farm meant I had chores. One chore was to help my mom pick ripe blackberries from our blackberry patch. I really didn’t mind this job because it was easy and meant we were going to enjoy a fresh homemade blackberry pie or blackberry cobbler. Mmm… so good!
Later in life, I discovered that a homemade Blackberry Mojito is also delightful and uber refreshing! Especially on a hot summer day!
Now, this recipe for Spiced Blackberry Chicken Wings can be added right along with those other yummy blackberry recipes!
Let me tell you how to make them.
First, start by preheating your oven to 375 degrees F. Next, cut 16 to 18 chicken wings at the joints and place them onto a large baking sheet lined with non-stick aluminum foil. Bake for 20 minutes, remove the pan from the oven and drain off the fat drippings.
The sauce is made by combining all-natural blackberry jam, melted butter, Chinese Five Spice, and onion powder, garlic powder, and chili powder. In addition to this, add both white pepper and black pepper, sea salt, and liquid smoke.
NOTE: Please feel free to adjust the amount of each spice in order to suit your individual tastes.
Next, use a basting brush and generously slather the sauce onto the wing pieces.
Place the pan back into the oven for another 40 minutes, or until the meat is cooked thoroughly.
NOTE: Although I’ve only made Spiced Blackberry Chicken Wings in the oven, they probably can be grilled. I suggest brushing the sauce on in increments to prevent it from sliding off.
Because chicken wings are finger food, I like to serve carrot and celery sticks, chips, and pickle spears alongside.
These amazing (and easy-to-make gluten-free) wings are sweet and spicy and have a hint of smokiness. Note: Adjust the amount of each spice to meet your individual tastes.
