To prepare marinade, whisk honey and paprika into the buttermilk. In a resealable plastic bag, soak the chicken in the buttermilk for 30 minutes (or up to 12 hours). In a medium bowl, combine the flour, salt and pepper.
Remove the chicken pieces and coat them evenly with the flour mixture; transfer to a parchment-lined baking sheet and let stand for 15 minutes. Coat the chicken again in the flour mixture.
In an extra-large, heavy skillet, heat the oil to 350°. Carefully add the chicken to the pan and partially cover. Lower the heat to medium-low and fry the chicken, turning occasionally, about 22 minutes. (Lower the temperature if the chicken is browning too quickly.) Transfer to paper towels to drain; serve hot.
Meanwhile, warm the peach jam, water and minced jalapeño (to taste), stirring until smooth. Brush onto the wings.
