Cooking Instructions

Trust us on this one, these Peanut Butter and Jelly Chicken Wings are the unexpected flavor combo you’ll wish you had discovered sooner. Irresistibly savory, sweet and spicy, the P B & J wings are marinated in a mixture of strawberry jam, peanut butter, honey and spicy Thai chili sauce. Grill them up until the skin crisps and caramelizes then top them off with a crunchy coating of whole grilled peanuts.  

How to Make Peanut Butter and Jelly Sauce for Wings 

In a mixing bowl, whisk together strawberry preserves, peanut butter, Worcestershire sauce, brown sugar, honey, Thai chili sauce, minced onion, Sweet Rib Rub, and black pepper. 

Wood Pellet Recommendation  

The thick smoke and bacon like aromas will make our Hickory Hardwood Pellets a great choice for this recipe. 

Note: This Recipe uses Pit Boss Sweet Rib Rub. 

  1. Place chicken wings in a 9 x13 glass baking dish. Pour mixture over chicken, cover with plastic wrap, and refrigerate for 2 hours.
  2. Fire up your Pit Boss Platinum Series KC Combo and preheat grill to 400° F. Preheat griddle to medium-low flame. If using a gas or charcoal grill, set it to medium-high heat.
  3. Place wings directly on grill grate, over indirect heat, and cook for 20 to 25 minutes, rotating wings every 5 minutes.
  4. Meanwhile, place shelled peanuts on the griddle, turning occasionally with a metal spatula for 5 to 7 minutes, to lightly roast. Remove from the griddle and set aside to cool.
  5. Remove wings from grill and allow to rest for 5 minutes. While wings are resting, shell the peanuts, and transfer to a resealable plastic bag. Use a rolling pin to crush the peanuts, then scatter peanuts on top of the chicken wings. Serve warm.

Bigger. Hotter. Heavier. Tip

For better mixing, use organic peanut butter. The extra creamy peanut butter is harder to whisk with the other ingredients.
