Recipe of the Week
This Smoky Buffalo Wings recipe is a TOUCHDOWN and a perfect treat for Super Bowl Sunday!
2 dozen chicken wings
3 tablespoons Smoky Blend (recipe below)
¼ cup melted coconut oil, ghee, or butter
2 - 3 tablespoons hot sauce (depending on heat preference)
1 teaspoon honey
Smoky Blend (makes more than what is needed for the wings)
2 tablespoons smoked paprika
2 tablespoons granulated onion
1 tablespoon chipotle powder
1 tablespoon sea salt
1 tablespoon sweet paprika
1.5 teaspoons ground cinnamon
1.5 teaspoons black pepper
Preheat the oven to 375 degrees F and place a wire baking rack on a rimmed baking sheet.
Place the wings in a large mixing bowl. Sprinkle about half of the spice blend over the wings, then toss to coat; repeat with the other half of the spice blend. Place the wings smooth skin side up on the baking rack, not touching. Sprinkle any spice blend left in the bowl over the wings.
Bake for 30 to 40 minutes, until the chicken reaches an internal temperature of 165 degrees F and is cooked through (no pink remains) and the skin is crispy. If you want to crisp the skin further, turn the oven to a low broil setting and broil for 5 minutes.
In a large bowl, whisk together the melted oil, hot sauce, and honey, starting with 2 tablespoons of hot sauce. Taste and add more hot sauce, 1 teaspoon at a time, as desired. If you accidentally add too much, add a bit more oil or honey to the sauce. Toss the wings in the sauce right when they come out of the oven.
I spent a LOT of time in the car this week. The silver lining is that I was able to listen to several interesting podcasts. Following are links to episodes I really enjoyed:
