Special diet :
2 cups store-bought barbecue sauce
2 cloves garlic, finely chopped, divided
2 peaches, peeled, pitted and chopped
Salt and pepper
24 chicken wings, separated at the joint and tips discarded
1 cup peach jam
1/4 cup apple cider vinegar
2 Tbsp. hot sauce, such as Frank’s Red Hot, or to taste
Scallions, green parts only, thinly sliced, for topping
In a food processor, combine the barbecue sauce and half of the garlic. Add the peaches and process until finely chopped; season with about 1-1/2 tsp. salt and about 1/4 tsp. pepper. Reserve 1/2 cup for basting. In a resealable plastic bag, toss together the chicken wings and remaining peach barbecue sauce; refrigerate for about 30 minutes.
Meanwhile, combine the peach jam, vinegar, remaining garlic, hot sauce and 1/2 tsp. salt in a small saucepan. Cook over medium heat until slightly thickened, about 5 minutes; let cool.
Preheat a grill or grill pan to low. Grill the chicken wings with the grill cover down, turning and basting occasionally with the reserved barbecue sauce, until cooked through, about 30 minutes. Top with the scallions and serve with the peach jam dipping sauce.
