Pineapple Hot Wings

: Recipes

Once upon a time – seven years ago, good grief – I co-ran a series of spicy food contests. These days, I am probably not in much of a competitive shape anymore (a retired champ, if you like), but I can still put together a pretty mean set of hot wings. For your enjoyment, here are the steps to create a pineapple variety.

Wings on tray


Dry Rub
Hot Sauce


  1. Turn oven to 225˚F.
  2. Mix dry goods together in a bowl.
  3. Coat wings in rub and put on baking tray.
  4. Add to oven, and set timer for 30 minutes.
  5. Meanwhile, in a pot, bring Frank’s to a boil over medium-high.
  6. Stir in butter until melted.
  7. Stir in pineapple, and bring to a simmer.
  8. After 30 minutes, take out chicken and coat each wing in sauce. (I usually toss them for that extra sauciness.)
  9. Turn oven up to 450˚F.
  10. When ready, put chicken back in for 15 minutes.
  11. Remove tray, flip chicken, and bake for 15 more minutes.

And enjoy!

The wings work perfectly will dry-style. Note that the paprika has a surprising kick that otherwise would be cooled down by the pineapple.
