Why You Should Make Crown Peach Wings

Delicious Flavor

Crown peach wings offer a unique twist on traditional chicken wings by incorporating the sweet and smooth flavor of Crown Royal peach whiskey.

The whiskey’s peach notes blend perfectly with savory spices and tangy sauces, creating a distinctive taste that stands out from standard wing recipes.

Easy to Prepare

Crown peach wings are relatively simple to prepare. Simply bake or fry your wings, and then toss them in the flavorful glaze for a delicious dish!

The sauce can be cooked on the stovetop, or just basted onto the wings at the end of cooking.

Perfect for Entertaining

These wings are a fantastic option for parties, game days, and your summer barbecue. The peach flavor pairs well with both sweet and spicy options, and is reminiscent of those hot summer days.

They also pair well with a variety of side dishes and beverages, making them a versatile addition to any menu. These wings are naturally low carb, so they’re suitable for those with low carb dietary needs.

Customizable

Making Crown peach wings allows for lots of customization and creativity! You can adjust the level of sweetness, add heat with spices or hot sauce, or incorporate additional ingredients like fresh herbs to tailor the recipe to your liking.

This flexibility makes it easy to create a wing recipe that perfectly matches your taste!

Crown Peach Wings Ingredients

ingredients to make crown peach wings in the air fryer
  • 1 ½ pounds fresh (or defrosted frozen) chicken wings (split into flats and drumettes)
  • 1 tsp salt 
  • ½ tsp black pepper
  • ½ tsp baking powder (optional)
  • 1 Tbsp olive oil

For the Crown Royal peach glaze:

  • ¼ cup Crown Royal peach whiskey
  • ⅓ cup peach preserves
  • 1 Tbsp Worcestershire sauce
  • 1 Tbsp apple cider vinegar
  • 1 tsp garlic powder
  • 1 tsp dried parsley
  • ½ tsp ground ginger
  • ½ tsp salt (or to taste)
  • ½ tsp black pepper (or to taste)

Ingredient Tips and Substitutions

  • You can purchase ‘wingettes’ at the store, or you can split full chicken wings into a flat and drumstick yourself (discard wing tips, or make stock with them)
  • The baking powder is optional, but I’ve made a lot of wings in the air fryer, and I like the little extra crisp you get from using a small amount, so I choose to add it
  • The olive oil can be swapped for another high smoke point oil, like avocado
  • All of the seasonings in the sauce are adjustable to taste (including omission). You can use apricot instead of peach preserves, and soy sauce is a good alternative for the Worcestershire. Feel free to add some hot sauce or cayenne pepper for some heat!
  • Note that not all of the alcohol cooks out from the sauce, so avoid serving these wings to children and non-drinkers

How to Make Crown Peach Wings (Air Fried)

  1. Pat your wings dry, then toss in a bowl with the olive oil until coated. Add in the salt, pepper, and baking powder, and toss again until everything is well distributed

  1. Place the wings into your air fryer’s basket or rack in a single layer

  1. Cook on the air fry setting at 400°F for 10 minutes, then flip and cook an additional 10-15 minutes (depending on size of wings), until the center reaches 165°F
  2. While the wings are cooking, combine the Crown Royal peach glaze ingredients in a small bowl, whisking to mix well. Note: if you want to cook the glaze on the stove, you can, which will reduce the alcohol content. Cook over medium high heat in a saucepan, stirring frequently, until thickened (about 5-7 minutes)

  1. Serve hot, drizzled with the reserved glaze

Recipe FAQs

What Are Crown Peach Wings?

Crown peach wings are chicken wings glazed with a mixture that includes Crown Royal peach whiskey, giving them a unique sweet and savory flavor.

The wings themselves can be baked, air fried, or deep fried before coating in the peach whiskey glaze.

Can I Grill Crown Peach Wings Instead of Baking or Air Frying?

Yes, you can grill Crown peach wings. Grilling adds a smoky flavor that compliments the sweetness of the Crown Royal peach whiskey.

Grill at about 425°F for 15-20 minutes, flipping every 5 minutes, until the skin is crispy. Glaze in the last 5 or so minutes to prevent over-charring.

Are Crown Peach Wings Spicy?

Crown peach wings are not inherently spicy, but you can add heat by including ingredients like hot sauce, cayenne pepper, or chili flakes in the marinade and glaze.

Start with about 1 tsp of hot sauce, ¼ tsp of cayenne or ½ tsp chili flakes, and adjust to personal taste preferences from there.

Can I Use Boneless Wings for This Recipe?

Yes, boneless wings or chicken tenders can be used as an alternative to traditional bone-in wings.

Frozen chicken tenders take about 10-12 minutes at 360°F in the air fryer. Once cooked through and crisped, toss in the prepared sauce before serving.

What Sides Pair Well with Crown Peach Wings?

Great side dishes include coleslaw, potato salad, cornbread, or a fresh green salad.

The sweet and savory flavors of the wings pair well with both tangy and creamy sides.

Can I Make Crown Peach Wings Ahead of Time?

Yes, you can cook the wings and reheat them just before serving.

Wings should be reheated for 5-10 minutes at 350°F in the air fryer. You can glaze the wings in the sauce for the reheating process, so they come out perfectly ready to eat!

Can I Adjust the Sweetness of the Wings?

Adjust the sweetness of the wings by adding more preserves, or some honey to your glaze.

For a less sweet wing, add some lemon juice to counterbalance, or reduce the overall amount of preserves added.

What Type of Chicken Should I Use for Crown Peach Wings?

You can use whole chicken wings or separate them into drumettes and wingettes.

Both work well with this recipe.

Crown Peach Wings Recipe Pro Tips

  • After saucing, the longer your wings sit, the less crispy they will be, so I recommend serving immediately for best results
  • You can serve with ranch or blue cheese for dipping if desired, but I don’t really feel you need to with these wings

Storage and Reheating Your Crown Peach Wings

  • Store any leftover Crown peach wings in an airtight container in the refrigerator for 3-4 days
  • To reheat wings in the air fryer, cook at 350°F for around 5-8 minutes, depending on the size of your wings. Flip halfway through so they re-crisp on both sides
