Broiled Hot Pepper Wings

Yield: 6 to 8 servings.


  1. 5 lb chicken wings split, wing tips cut off and discarded
  2. 2 tablespoons vegetable oil, plus extra for oiling rack
  3. Kosher salt and freshly cracked black pepper
  4. 1 cup hot pepper jelly (preferably stonewall brand)
  5. 1/2 cup freshly squeezed lime juice
  6. 1/2 cup Frank’s hot sauce


  1. Preheat broiler.
  2. Line sheet pan with foil and place oiled rack on top of pan. Toss wings with oil and season with salt and pepper.
  3. Spread wings on rack in one layer. Broil 4 to 5 inches from heat, turning over once, until barely cooked through, 15 to 20 minutes.
  4. In a small saucepan over moderate heat whisk pepper jelly, lime juice and hot sauce until smooth, bring to boil and let simmer for 1 to 2 minutes. Brush 1/4 cup sauce on cooked wings and broil 1 to 2 minutes. Brush wings with 1/4 cup sauce again, then turn wings over and brush with another 1/4 cup sauce. Broil until crispy about, 2 to 3 minutes. Brush with remaining sauce before serving.
