2 Tbsp vegetable oil
5 pounds chicken wings, split and tips discarded
salt and pepper to taste, about 1 tsp each
1 tsp baking powder
1 cup hot pepper jelly (Tabasco Pepper Jelly, Stonewall Kitchens, or Braswell 10 oz jar)
1/2 cup fresh squeezed lime juice (about 4 limes)
1/2 cup Frank’s hot sauce
Preheat oven to 475 degrees. Line a sheet pan with foil, lightly oil, and place rack in the middle.
Toss wings with 2 Tbsp of oil. Sprinkle wings with salt, pepper, and baking powder, toss to coat. Bake 45 minutes to 1 hour, turning half way through.
In a small saucepan over moderate heat, whisk the pepper jelly, lime juice, and hot sauce until smooth. Bring to a boil, reduce the heat and let simmer 1-2 minutes.
Adjust rack to about 6 inches and set broiler to high. Brush the cooked wings with 1/4 cup sauce and broil 1 to 2 minutes. Brush with 1/4 cup sauce again, flip wings, brush with 1.4 cup sauce. Broil until crispy, about 2 to 3 minutes. Brush with remaining sauce before serving.
