I am always looking for a different type of chicken wing recipe. The cooling time includes the marinade and dipping sauce prep. The last 5 ingredients are for the dipping sauce starting at the apricot jam or marmalade.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Place the chicken wings onto a baking sheet, lined with aluminum foil.
  2. In a small bowl, add the garlic, shallots, mustard, paprika, thyme, brown sugar, cayenne pepper, and Creole seasoning. Stir and then add in the lemon juice to create a paste. Using a pastry brush, brush the mixture over the chicken wings. Let the chicken wings absorb the marinade for 30 minutes at room temperature.
  3. Bake in a 475F degree oven for 15-20 minutes. Turn the chicken wings over and bake for another 15-20 minutes or until browned and crisp.
  4. To make the apricot dipping sauce, melt the apricot jam in a saucepan over low heat. Add in the mustard, pimiento and apple cider vinegar. Serve this as the dipping sauce for the chicken wings.

Excellent recipe! I used this for thighs, which are larger, so I increased the oven temp to 350* and baked them on a suspended rack for approx 45 minutes. I had red beans & rice as the perfect accompaniment. Thank you!

Made as written for ZWT-9 as part of a Cajun/Creole & Greek appy-nite, DH & I both enjoyed these tasty wings & the sauce that accompanied them. I used homemade apricot marmalade that was a gift from a friend for the sauce & it was a bit chunky, so it had flavor & texture. I made a 2nd ZWT dipping sauce recipe as a taste test & we liked them equally well. From a cook's view, I'll chg 1 part of the prep. I found the pastry brush process tedious & will just add the wings to the "paste" & mix well to coat them B4 placing them on the baking sheet. A word of advice to chefs who follow me (& I hope there are many), do not skip using the aluminum foil. Thx for sharing this recipe w/us.
