Raspberry Chipotle Wings

Hot and richly fruity, this sauce also makes a great glaze for salmon, sausages or meatballs. Or pour over goat cheese or warmed Brie and serve with crackers.

Preparation

Remove tips from chicken wings and reserve for stock if desired; separate wings at joint.

In small saucepan, heat oil over medium heat; fry onion, stirring occasionally, until softened, about 5 minutes.

Add raspberries, vinegar, molasses, honey, chipotle and half each of the salt and pepper; bring to boil. Reduce heat and simmer, uncovered and stirring often, until reduced by half, about 12 minutes. Let cool slightly.

Scrape into blender; puree Pressing on solids, strain through fine mesh sieve into large bowl. Set aside. (Make-ahead: Refrigerate in airtight container for up to 2 days.)

Toss wings with remaining salt and pepper. Place on greased grill rack or in grill basket over medium heat; close lid and grill, turning occasionally, until crisp and juices run clear when chicken is pierced, about 30 minutes.

Add to raspberry mixture in bowl; toss to coat. Return to grill; grill, covered and turning once, for 4 minutes. Serve with remaining sauce for dipping.

Additional information : Tip: To bake instead of grill wings, bake on rack on foil-lined rimmed baking sheet in 400°F (200°C) oven, turning once, for 45 minutes. Coat wings in raspberry mixture then continue with recipe, baking wings instead of grilling them.
