When I got my hands on a jar of balsamic pepper fig spread I knew right away that I wanted to make a savory dish with it. Chicken wings was the first to come to mind. Why? My family loves chicken wings and they are so easy to make. I don’t make them too often, but amongst the ways I have tried them baked is my favorite. It takes less time and effort from start to finish. Grab the best baked balsamic pepper fig chicken wings you’ve ever tried in the recipe section below.
Did you know figs have more calcium than milk, more fiber than prunes and more potassium than bananas?

Go on check what else I made with fig spreads, California Orange Fig Biscuits, they are best when warm with a cup of coffee at any time of the day. Plus enjoy a fun giveaway going on (visit last post) where you can win four pack variety of fig spreads and a bag of figlets. You can create all the sweet or savory dishes your hearts desires.
1. Preheat oven 450 degrees. 10. Place the chicken wings back to the baking sheet and bake for an additional 5 minutes. The spread will blacken just a bit and melt beautifully.
2. Prepare the chicken wing, if you bought them whole (like I did). Cut through the joint of the wing and remove the wing tip. Then cut through the second joint to separate the wing into the forearm and upper arm portions.
3. Mix dry ingredients into a large bowl.
4. Dry your chicken wings a bit using paper towels (this will help the dry ingredients better stick to the chicken).
5. Toss in the chicken wings until well coated with the dry ingredients.
6. Spread evenly over a baking sheet.
7. Spray with cooking spray.
8. Bake for 40 minutes. Turning once or twice as needed until browned and crispy.
9. Once baked remove from the oven and toss in a large bowl with the balsamic pepper fig spread.
Make sure you coat every piece of chicken very well.
