Preparation Time: 15 minutes
Cook Time: 50 minutes
1lb of fresh chicken wings (cut into winglets)
2 tablespoon grape seed oil
1 tablespoon lemon zest
1 teaspoon cracked black pepper
1/2 teaspoon fresh garlic, minced
1 teaspoon fresh parsley, chopped
1 cup ketchup, low-sodium
1/2 cup beer (your favorite)
1/2 cup honey
1/3 cup onion, grated
2/3 cup rice vinegar
1/4 cup Worcestershire sauce
1 tablespoon yellow mustard
1 tablespoon chipotle chile in adobo sauce, minced
4-5 dried figs
3 tablespoons Judson Todd Allen’s CHEF BLEND Hot Sauce
1/2 tablespoon lemon juice
1 tablespoon garlic powder
1 tablespoon onion powder
1/2 tablespoon black pepper
Place wings on sheet tray and add oil, pepper, garlic and lemon zest. Thoroughly combine wings with oil and spices. Place in a 400 degree oven to bake until dark golden, somewhat charred and crispy – 35-40 minutes.
In a mixing bowl add honey fig bbq sauce and parsley. Remove wings from oven and add to the sauce. Toss to evenly coat. Remove wings and place back on the sheet tray and finish in oven for additional 5-10 minutes.
After wings are done apply them to your warm sauce again and toss to fully coat. Serve!

Remove sauce, let cool and add to a heat protected blender. Blend sauce until smooth.
