Fried chicken wings are an international phenomenon, and while we Americans perhaps can lay claim to wings as a central component of our national cuisine, more countries than you'd imagine are churning out crisp-fried poultry goodness and adding their own local flair. At izakayas (casual drinking establishments), Japan's working weary relax over sake, cold beer, and comforting late night nibbles, including sashimi, edamame, and yakitori (grilled chicken). More recently, they have added fried chicken wings to the mix, dressing them in light but delectable sauces made from Japanese kitchen staples.This recipe blends soy sauce, sake, mirin (sweet cooking wine), garlic, and ginger with a splash of tangy vinegar to finish. Just before serving, sprinkle on some sesame seeds and — if you can find it — a blend of Japanese spices containing tingly sansho pepper, ground red pepper flakes, and dried orange peel. It pairs just as nicely with Sapporo as it does with an all-American ice-cold Bud. Read on for the recipe.
Buffalo wings may be the king of game-day chicken parts, but barbecue wings sure give poultry royalty a run for its money. There's a reason this American classic is a food-festival mainstay: often containing a plethora of ingredients, it goes hand in hand with any meat, and there are about as many versions of barbecue sauce as there are people making them, resulting in an endless taste test for barbecue lovers.
I love slow-smoked brisket slathered in a sauce smoldering with heat, but when I dress up chicken, nothing beats a zesty-sweet honey barbecue. This recipe packs a flavor punch with mustard, hot sauce, soy sauce, ketchup, and cider vinegar tempered with soothing honey and orange juice. It's quite a long list of ingredients, but I'll bet you already have most of them in your pantry and refrigerator, and the sauce comes together quickly on the stove while you prep your other pregame eats. And for those of you cringing from memories of KFC's gloppy, gluey sauce, rest assured that you will be licking your fingers for all the right reasons. Read on to get the recipe.
Domino's Pizza sure is focused on moving forward. First, it completely overhauled its pizza; now, it's clucking about newly revamped chicken. The pizza chain added boneless chicken to its menu and updated its chicken wings, launching the new poultry items yesterday with its first national chicken promotion in nine years.
The boneless chicken — made with "100 percent white breast meat" — is served with dippable flavors Kicker Hot Sauce, New Sweet Mango Habañero, BBQ, Ranch, or Blue Cheese. The first three sauce flavors are also available with the traditional chicken wings.
"Over 80 percent of our menu consists of new, permanent menu items introduced since 2008, so the desire to continue getting better goes well beyond our pizza," the company said in a statement. Those of you who've been to Domino's lately: can you attest to the truth of this?
During the Summer, there is nothing better than an afternoon picnic at a local park. I am always on the lookout for something to replace boring picnic sandwiches. These sesame chicken wings are delicious both warm and at room temperature, making them a perfect choice to pack in your cooler.
I cooked the chicken in the oven, but you could easily use a barbecue. Definitely set aside some of the scrumptious sauce and once the chicken is cooked, coat them in a little extra! The addition of toasted sesame seeds and chopped scallions provides crunch and depth of flavor. Have your napkins ready for these tasty chicken wings and get the recipe by reading more.
When it comes to game day eats, dips are convenient, chili is comforting, and pizza is solid, but none of them hold a candle to the reigning champion of Super Bowl snacks: fiery, vinegar-laden chicken wings.
While it's a Sunday requirement, buffalo chicken isn't the most ideal to make; even with special cooking equipment, its deep-fried preparation can be dangerous, messy, and odorous. Leave it to the king of food science, Alton Brown, to come up with an alternative cooking method for buffalo chicken.
His recipe calls for steaming, chilling, and then baking the chicken wings. It's healthier, less messy, and even my sports fanatic boyfriend can't tell the difference! For a baked version that achieves the same crispy, crackly results, keep reading.
St. Louis Rams fans: if you think a winning touchdown has been impossible this season, just wait until you try to score some buffalo chicken wings.
Wing demand is on the rise, but due to this year's waning need for chicken breast, poultry producers have cut chicken production for the first time in 36 years. Broiler chicken production is forecast to be down 3.5 percent this year — and, with only two wings per chicken, wholesale wing costs are poised to increase dramatically.
So, much like Super Bowl Sunday last year, on game day other spicy chicken dishes will just have to fly. Since what I really want to eat is buffalo chicken cheese dip, that's fine with me. Will you miss this year's wings? Or are you willing to pay a higher price for them?
Halloween happens to fall on a Saturday this year which makes it an ideal night for hosting a party. But don't just throw any party, select a theme, like vampires, and use this to inspire a ghoulish bash.
Once you've notified your friends, you can focus on more important things, like the menu. Select an assortment of finger-licking good foods that evoke the vampire culture.
Tomato soup filled test tubes resemble the addictive vampire blood popular in the HBO series, True Blood. Stefan Salvatore, the kind bloodsucker on the CW's Vampire Diaries who loves garlic, would devour a platter of garlic and cheese crostini. Guests will feel like Buffy the Vampire Slayer when they stake steak bites with skewers and dunk them into a bloody Mary dipping sauce. Finally, spicy sriracha doused chicken wings are so hearty they'd satiate even the toughest Cullen brother's hunger. Get these festive recipes when you read more
Hoping to boost this year's sales — and prove that it's still "waaaay better than fast food" — fast food chain Wendy's has announced plans to unveil a new menu item, boneless chicken wings, later this month. The boneless wings — which will compete head to head with KFC's new Kentucky Grilled Chicken — come in three different flavors: Sweet & Spicy Asian, Honey BBQ, and Bold Buffalo. "Our new Boneless Wings are as far as it gets from fast food," Ken Calwell, Wendy's chief marketing officer, said. "Sweet & Spicy Asian wings are something you'd find at an upscale restaurant."
The new item will set you back $3.99 for seven to nine wings (depending on weight), and will be available in a combo meal for $5.69. Since I'm a buffalo wing fiend, I'll definitely check these out — although I'm skeptical about the idea of them being "upscale restaurant" fare. Still, with McDonald's doing froufrou coffee drinks and Burger King barbecuing ribs, the fast food climate seems to be changing. Do fast food's newest items interest you?
