Mmm the smell of chicken wings cooking up in the oven is one of my favorite things. With football season in full swing, I can’t think of anything more fitting to eat on a lazy Sunday. We received some fresh chili peppers from my bf’s brother, so that is what drove us down a spicy road with this recipe. My boyfriend and I are always challenging ourselves to reinvent the chicken wing by experimenting with new spices or cooking them on the grill versus the oven. I had a marathon Sunday of cooking last week, and prepared these at noon just in time to enjoy for Redskins halftime. They pair great with a light beer and would be amazing over top some fried rice too.
The song of the recipe is one I’ve been playing on repeat the last two days. “Live and Die” by the Avett Brothers has an infectious melody and just makes me happy when I hear it. I saw them live for a second time at Virgin Freefest this past weekend, and they did not disappoint. Give it a listen and let me know what you think!
