Directions

  • Heat vegetable oil in a skillet over medium-high heat. Saute jalapeno peppers, garlic, cumin, and red pepper flakes in hot oil until vegetables are tender and fragrant, about 5 minutes; cool completely.

  • Stir buttermilk and cooled jalapeno mixture together in a large glass or ceramic bowl; add chicken wings and stir to coat wings completely. Cover the bowl with plastic wrap and refrigerate for at least 8 hours or overnight. Drain chicken and discard buttermilk mixture.

  • Set oven rack about 6 inches from the heat source and preheat the oven's broiler.

  • Toss chicken wings with olive oil, 2 teaspoons salt, and black pepper in a large bowl. Spread wings out in an even layer on a baking sheet.

  • Cook chicken in the preheated oven, turning once, until almost cooked through, 20 to 25 minutes. Remove from oven.

  • Whisk apple juice concentrate, lemon juice, honey, hot pepper sauce, Worcestershire sauce, and remaining 1/4 teaspoon salt together in a large saucepan; bring to a boil and cook until mixture is reduced by half and syrupy, about 20 minutes.

  • Brush 1/4 cup the apple juice sauce on the chicken wings. Return wings to oven and continue cooking for 1 to 2 minutes. Brush wings again with 1/4 cup apple juice sauce, turn wings, and brush wings with another 1/4 cup apple juice sauce. Broil until chicken wings are deep brown, 1 to 2 minutes more. An instant-read thermometer inserted near the bone should read 165 degrees F (74 degrees C). Serve with remaining apple juice sauce.

Cook's Notes:

Make your own buttermilk with any milk and add 2 tablespoons of either lemon juice or vinegar.

You can substitute cut-up chicken breasts for the chicken wings.
