Getting bored with buffalo wings?  Give these flavor-packed wings a try...they're baked instead of fried, and they're glazed with a sweet and spicy sauce that's out of this world!


cost per recipe: $7.79

  • 2 pounds chicken wings(about 12 wings)
  • 1 jar (16 ounces) Pace® Picante Sauce
  • 1/3 cup orange marmalade
  • 2 teaspoons Dijon-style mustard
  • 1 tablespoon sesame seeds, toasted


  • Tips

    • Easy Substitution: You can substitute 24 chicken drumettes (about 2 pounds) for the 12 chicken wings in this recipe.
  • Step 1

    Heat the oven to 425°F.  Line a rimmed baking sheet with aluminum foil.  Cut off the chicken wing tips and discard.  Cut the chicken wings in half at the joint. 

  • Step 2

    Heat 1 1/2 cups picante sauce, marmalade and mustard in a 2-quart saucepan over medium heat to a boil.  Reduce the heat to medium-low.  Cook for 40 minutes or until the mixture is reduced to 3/4 cup, stirring occasionally.

  • Step 3

    Place the chicken into a large bowl.  Add the remaining picante sauce and toss to coat.  Place the chicken onto the baking sheet.

  • Step 4

    Bake for 40 minutes or until the chicken is cooked through, turning the chicken over once halfway through the bake time.  Baste the chicken with the picante-mustard mixture during the last 10 minutes of the bake time.  Sprinkle with the sesame seed, if desired.

    I doubled the recipe only because I doubled the chicken. I have been cooking it for a long time and feel i really followed the recipe. I had to drain my chicken while cooking because it is not looking glazed like the pic. half of my chicken was boneless. I am not sure what i did wrong. I followed recipe. Not impressed

    Used Apricot preserves instead of marmalade. Doubled the sauce receipe and the family wanted more sauce. Think maybe I cooked it too long it might not need 40 min to simmer. Will definatly do this receipe again it was yummie.

    I used a little Tabasco Brand Habanero Sauce to crank up the heat. It received rave reviews during my last football party
