It’s chicken wing time!
Honestly, the inspiration for this post was someone mentioning the Super Bowl. Being out of the loop on sports always, I thought to myself, man, I love eating wings at football parties. Football parties that I never am invited to anymore because I don’t actually watch the game. Sorry football lovers.
So wings are good any day, not just for the Super Bowl! Chris loves Thai food and wanted a peanutty sauce with a kick. I took a recipe I have for one of my noodle dishes, and modified it a bit for the wings. The sauce is thick so make sure you spread it out over the wings.
All the delicious ingredients for the sauce all together!
Pre-heat your oven to 400 degrees. Line up your chicken on a baking rack on top of a foil lined baking sheet. Dab the chicken, front and back, to make sure it’s dry. This will ensure your chicken is nice and crispy!
Once you’ve dried off your chicken, salt and pepper both sides. Place into then oven for 50 minutes or until crispy and cooked through.
While your chicken is cooking, go ahead and make your sauce. Add all ingredients into a blender, and blend well.
Your chicken should come out of the oven with crispy skin and a lightly browned color.
While your wings are still hot, place them into a large bowl and pour the sauce over them. Mix the wings well, making sure to cover every bit of the wing’s surface. The sauce is thick, so do your best to spread the sauce evenly over the wings.
Garnish with carrots and green onions if desired.
