If you are planning on having a party to watch a sporting event, there's a good chance that you're going to want to make sure that you serve chicken wings. Chicken wings are a fan favorite because they are relatively easy to eat with your hands and they are delicious. However, you might get bored of the traditional sauces that you always make to flavor your chicken wings. If you want your wings to truly stand out, you need to make some interesting sauces. Here are some potential recipe and ingredient ideas for you to try.
1. Peanut Butter and Jelly Wings
In order to make this sauce to flavor your wings, you will need a half cup of peanut butter, one and a half cups of grape jelly, a cup of grape juice, and a half cup of vinegar. Once you have all of the ingredients, mix them together. Set aside half a cup of the mixture that you've created for basting. Put the rest of the mixture in a bag and place the chicken wings in the bag. Allow them to marinate in the mixture for an hour or two in the fridge. After the few hours, preheat the oven to 375 degrees Fahrenheit and cook the chicken wings for a half hour. Baste the wings with the rest of the mixture and allow them to cook for an additional thirty minutes. Take out of the oven and enjoy.
2. Thai Wings
Another option is to give your wings a stronger Thai flavor. To do this, get half a cup of Asian chili sauce, four tablespoons of brown sugar, three tablespoons of soy sauce, half a cup of water, one minced clove of garlic, two tablespoons of rice vinegar, two tablespoons of lime juice, half a cup of chopped peanuts, and salt and pepper.
Once you have the ingredients, line a baking sheet with parchment paper and preheat your oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit. Cook your wings for between one and two hours depending on how crispy you like them. Add all of the ingredients listed above except the peanuts together in a saucepan. Cook on medium heat and stir frequently. Once the mixture begins to boil, reduce the heat to a simmer. Pour the sauce in a huge bowl and add the cooked wings. Put a lid on the bowl and toss it so that the sauce totally covers the wings.
Remove the wings, add the chopped peanuts, and serve.
