California Kiwi Buffalo Wings
California Kiwifruit Commission (Published January 17, 2001)

1 pound chicken wings (approximately)
1/2 cup bottled green jalapeno pepper jelly
1 large clove garlic, minced
2 tablespoons brown sugar
1 kiwifruit, peeled and mashed with fork
2 tablespoons red bell pepper, chopped
1/4 bunch fresh cilantro
1/8 small sweet onion
1/2 jalapeno pepper, seeded
2 tomatillos, husks removed and cut up
1 teaspoon fresh lime juice
dash salt
2 tablespoons brown sugar
2 tablespoons bottled green jalapeno pepper jelly

Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Clean the wings and cut into three segments at the joints. Reserve the two meatier portions for this recipe and discard or freeze the wing tips for use in another recipe. Mix the 1/2 cup jelly, garlic, brown sugar and mashed kiwi until smooth.

Line a cookie sheet with foil and spray lightly with oil, then place the chicken-wing segments on this and bake for 20-25 minutes or until they begin to brown. Remove from the oven, brush generously on one side with the jelly glaze and return to the oven to cook for 10 more minutes. Remove from the oven, turn the wings over and brush with the glaze again. Return to the oven and cook for an additional 10 minutes.

Meanwhile, place the remaining ingredients except the mashed kiwi into a blender or the bowl of a food processor fitted with a steel blade. Blend until the ingredients are smooth. Remove and add the mashed kiwi. Reserve. When cooked, serve the wings with the dipping sauce
