RALEIGH, N.C. (WNCN) – Peanut butter and jelly make for the perfect intersection of savory and sweet.

And this year at the North Carolina State Fair, one food vendor is dishing up this American classic – with a twist.

Introducing: Peanut butter and jelly chicken wings,

“We take the peanut butter and jelly, and one other ingredient I won’t share, and we oven bake that to break it all down into a caramel paste,” said Bess McBride-Brinkley of McBride Concessions. “It has a very Thai influence.”

From there, the peanut butter and jelly smothers deep fried chicken wings to create a combo you won’t be finding on any fast food menus.

If you’re itching to try some PBJ chicken, you can find your fix directly across from the Expo Building Entrance.
