Wings are by far one of my favorite things to eat ever since childhood. They are literally the things that I find make the perfect appetizer, main meat item, snack, or breakfast. Haha.
These Sticky Peach Chicken Wings are just what our Summer needs, especially with the bold peach flavor profile and I can guarantee that once you try these---you'll be hooked.
I couldn't be more excited to share this recipe with you all and be rest assured that these sticky peach chicken wings are super easy to make, are sweet enough and savory, can be done in both the oven or air-fryer, and is the perfect addition to so many meal ideas.
The best part about any wing is the crispy coating that is formed without an “actual coating”. And these wings do not disappoint. I talk more about tips to making these wings nice and crispy, but let’s talk about this delicious recipe.
You'll need the following ingredients for these sticky peach chicken wings:
To make sure your wings get as crispy as possible without needing an actual “coating”, follow these simple tips:
When it comes to wings, there are two types: Drums (a.k.a. drumettes) and flats (a.k.a. wingettes). The drums actually look like miniature chicken legs and have one single bone in the middle surrounded by meat, whereas the flats are “flat” and contain two smaller bones that runs the length of the wing.
Of course, both methods of making these sticky peach chicken wings is effective. However, if you’re wondering whether you’d be able to also make these wings in an air-fryer—-then yes! Absolutely!
Simply do all steps the same (minus adding the bit of peach sauce) and cook them in your air-fryer for the amount of time needed (somewhere between 10-15 minutes I believe). Once crisp, make the peach sauce in the skillet, toss them in the sauce and wallah.
As you know, this recipe is for baked wings and honestly, they’re just as crispy as using them in the airy-fryer (especially when you use a wire rack), so the choice is yours!
The United States sees its peak peach season every summer. You will begin to see them emerge in grocery stores around May, with September being the end of the season. The peak harvest season for peaches is July and August.
I like to get my peaches from the freshest source possible. When peaches are already very ripe, I usually pass on them. I generally like to allow the peach to soften and ripen on my countertop so I can keep an eye on them. Overripe peaches are hard to revive. Buying firmer peaches gives you more time to make a variety of recipes with them.
If you buy your peaches at the farmer’s market, the farmer will likely tell you all about the growing process. I have learned so much about produce by simply talking to the local farmers that sell at my local summer market. They are always helpful in identifying types of peaches, how they grow, and how to cook them.
This goes for any fruit, not only peaches. During cherry season, farmers will market their freshest cherries. During apple and pumpkin season, you barely see any other type of produce. Seasonal fresh produce is the best way to pick the freshest fruit available.
These sticky peach chicken wings are full of flavor all on their own. But who doesn’t love to dunk and dip?
Serve your wings with any (or all) of these tasty condiments:
You can eat these Sticky Peach Chicken Wings hot out of the oven dipped in your favorite creamy sauce as a standalone food. I like ranch, dairy-free creamy lime dressing, or my creamy avocado dressing.
However, if you're thinking about serving these wings with something to create a complete, full meal, then I recommend trying my favorite ways to incorporate them:
These sticky peach chicken wings are best the day they’re made, since they’re so crispy. However, you can store leftovers in an airtight container in the fridge for up to four days. Reheat them in the oven or in an oven or air fryer to crisp them back up when you’re ready to serve.
