Who said peanut butter and jelly are just for sandwiches? These peanut butter and jelly chicken wings are the perfect summertime appetizer!
Peanut butter and jelly chicken wings. I know, it sounds weird. Really though it’s totally delicious. It’s the perfect balance of sweet, savory and just a touch of spiciness. I first heard about these wings via Twitter but of course I cannot remember who I heard it from. This is what I get for following 1k people. However, I do owe a giant thank you to the awesome person who talked about them because I finally gave them a try and they were delicious!
If you’re one of those people who like peanut sauce with their chicken satay you will totally dig these chicken wings. As far as jelly is concerned you could use whatever your heart desires. I used some tart cherry jelly but I think apricot, grape or even raspberry would be tasty.
I ended up making these wings because I knew Memorial Day is just about here (hello summer!) and I figured you might need a few new summertime recipes. That means this week is all about grilling and outdoor eating. I will have everything from chicken wings to healthy salads to tasty cocktails.
You didn’t think I would get through this week and not share a cocktail did you?

- 13 ounces tart cherry jelly
- 1/2 cup natural creamy peanut butter
- 2 tablespoons apple cider vinegar
- 2 tablespoons cherry juice
- 1 teaspoon sriracha
- 12 chicken drumettes
- Chopped peanuts
In a medium-sized mixing bowl whisk together jelly, peanut butter, vinegar, juice, and sriracha.
Pour peanut butter mixture into a 1-gallon zip-top bag and add in chicken wings.
Securely close the bag and using your hands make sure all the chicken is coated. I just move around the chicken until it's fully covered.
Place the bag (zip side up) in a small casserole dish and let the chicken marinate overnight. (I place it in a small casserole dish just in case there is a leak in the bag.)
When you're ready to make your chicken wings preheat your grill to medium heat, add your wings, and cook for about 10 minutes until the outside is crisp and the chicken is fully cooked.
Serve with a sprinkling of peanuts if desired.
