Recipe by Chef John
"I promise you that this is no gimmick. The spicy, sticky, and peanut-based sauce base delivers a distinct chicken wing-eating experience. If you're a fan of satay, you will enjoy this approach."
Hmm. None of these ingredients are on sale today.

instant mashed potato flakes
ground black pepper
cayenne pepper, or to taste
jalapeno pepper jelly
seasoned rice vinegar
toasted sesame oil
red pepper flakes
chili garlic sauce (such as Sriracha®), or to taste
To the people complaining about the peanut butter: don't let the name fool you, this is Thai-flavored. It's meant to have a strong peanut taste, and if you don't like that you should be looking for another recipe.
I love the sauce just as written. It gives the wings a lot of meatiness that they normally don't have. I've made these for regular dinners, parties, and functions, and they've always been a huge hit! When I put them alongside more traditional wings, this is always the plate that runs out first.
The only thing I change is that, after a lot of experimenting, I've found 30 minutes of initial cooking (turning half-way through), and then 5 minutes afterward gives me a much juicer product.
I try this recipes it's délicious but a lot of peanut butter
To Oesi: I would use a mildly flavored jelly, such as apple jelly (not grape/berry or your appelstroop) and a tsp of chopped fresh hot chiles and a few drops of vinegar to achieve the flavor or jalapeno jelly.
These were amazing!
I made my own pepper jelly for this, what an amazing combination. I am about to make this for about 10 people tomorrow and am feeling pretty good about them!
Sounds great, as I absolutely love satay, but what can I use instead of jalapeno pepper jelly? Nowhere to be found in the Netherlands.
I tried this recipe this weekend. The peanut butter was overwelming, just way too much. I made the sauce first and wound up doubling everything but the PB or I would have thrown it out. Depending on your love of peanut butter I would half the measurement or add to taste. The Jalapeno jelly is actually sweet and slightly spicy, not hot at all. I added extra Sriracha because my family loves hot wings. I didnt have fish sauce. I looked on the internet and used 1Tbls Soy sauce and 1Tbls lime juice as a substitute. In the end this was pretty good and the kids got a kick out of eating PB & J wings. I'll probably make it again but without peanut butter.
I forgot to put the oil in the potato flake mixture and still it turned out good, I did give the pan and the tops of the wings a little spray of cooking spray. and used my homemade tai peanut sauce. yum !
Made my own jalapeño jelly, otherwise followed instructions to the letter. It's not like I need another hot wing recipe, but this one is unique, interesting, tasty, a dinner topic in itself and therefore a keeper. Thanks Chef John for posting yet an other keeper.
