Errbody loves chicken wings, but even the most ardent fan can get bored with the same ‘ol, same ‘ol. Here are four new ways to liven up your wings.
Hot Apple Chicken Wings, Epicurious.com: The sweet flavors of apples and maple sugar combine with biting vinegar and hot chili powder for a wholly original take on classic, fried wings.
Grilled Teriyaki Chicken Wings, Beachlover’s Kitchen: Tender, skewered chicken brushed with homemade teriyaki sauce is a bonafide winner. The recipe calls for mirin, which is a common Japanese condiment. If you can’t find any in your area, blend sake, corn syrup and water for an easy substitute, or consider ordering online at retailers like iHerb.com.
Southwestern-Style Fried Chicken Wings with Kicked-Up Jalapeno Poppers and a Creamy Chipotle-Cilantro Sauce, Food Network: The name alone is a mouthful. Emeril Lagasse’s recipe is everything you love: fried, spicy and loaded with layered, Southwestern flavors. But as with all of Emeril’s food, it makes enough to feed an NFL team, so consider halving the recipe or saving it for a special occasion.
Grilled Jerk Chicken Wings, YumSugar: Even if "Pon de Replay" is as Caribbean as you get, you’ll feel like a Jamaican grill master while whipping up some jerk chicken. The recipe’s simple and gives you license to "cheat" a little with bottled jerk seasoning.
