It's football season and a few Sunday's ago there was a game between my KC Chiefs and Tim's Minnesota Vikings. Neither one of these teams had won a game yet this year, so this was a big event in more than one way. What foods do you think of when you hear football? Chicken Wings, Nachos and Dip are the first that come to my mind. I found a recipe for Sticky Chicken Wings on Tandy's blog. Perfect! Normally I make these wings, much more spicy than sticky.
I cooked these in the oven for about 30 minutes and then finished them on the grill. Tim enjoyed the wings a lot more than the outcome of the game. KC Chiefs 22 - Minnesota Vikings 17.
STICKY CHICKEN WINGS
8 chicken wings
juice of 1 lime
1 tablespoon soy sauce
1 teaspoon crushed ginger
1 tablespoon oil
1 tablespoon honey
½ teaspoon wasabi sauce
1 teaspoon crushed garlic
preheat the oven to 180°Celsius
make a marinade out of the lime, soy, ginger, oil, honey, wasabi and garlic
massage the marinade into the chicken and leave to marinade for 20 minutes
place the chicken and the marinade into an oven proof dish
season and cook for 25 minutes
grill for a further 2 minutes
Note: I grilled these for about 20 minutes. I didn't find these to be done after 20 minutes in the oven.
