Life is not a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in a pretty and well-preserved body,
but rather to skid in broadside, totally worn out & proclaiming “Wow, What a Ride!”

meal ideas ~ a different game day wing- no buffalo

SuperBowl is this coming weekend and everyone is talking about making some chicken Buffalo wings for the big day. I am not a fan of sports or buffalo wings, but I do understand the attraction to eating wings on that big sports day. They are a finger food, and finger food and game snacks go together like peanut butter and jelly. I thought it might be fun to find some recpies that are not so “buffalo-ie” just in case you too have a non-wing-fan in your celebratory clan this festive game day.

Mahogany Chicken Wings
Soy sauce, honey, molasses and spices blend to make perfect, beautiful chicken wings.


3 pounds chicken wings, split (tips discarded optional)
1/2 cup soy sauce
1/2 cup honey
1/4 cup molasses
2 tablespoons chile sauce
1 teaspoon ground ginger
2 cloves garlic, finely chopped

Place chicken in a shallow, medium dish.

In a medium bowl, mix soy sauce, honey, molasses, chile sauce, ground ginger and garlic. Pour the mixture over the chicken. Cover and refrigerate approximately 1 hour, turning occasionally.

Preheat oven to 375 degrees F.

In a large baking dish, arrange chicken in a single layer. Bake in the preheated oven  approximately 50 minutes, brushing with remaining soy sauce mixture often and turning once, until meat is no longer pink and juices run clear.

Grill Master Chicken Wings
Tangy Italian dressing and savory soy create an easy marinade that is just terrific on grilled chicken wings.
 
Wings:
1/2 cup soy sauce
1/2 cup Italian-style salad dressing
3 pounds chicken wings, cut apart at
joints, wing tips discarded

Sauce:
1/4 cup butter
1 teaspoon soy sauce
1/4 cup hot pepper or to taste

Combine 1/2 cup soy sauce, Italian dressing, and chicken wings in a large, zip-top bag. Close bag and refrigerate 4 hours to overnight.

Preheat an outdoor grill for medium heat. In a small saucepan, melt the butter. Stir in the 1 teaspoon soy sauce and the hot pepper sauce. Turn off heat and reserve.

Remove the chicken wings from the marinade and pat dry. Cook the wings on the preheated grill, turning occasionally, until the chicken is well browned and no longer pink, 25 to 30 minutes.

Place grilled wings in a large bowl. Pour butter sauce over wings; toss to mix well.

Detroit Hot Honey Wings
A sweet, spicy wing recipe that is amazing on the grill! This is a Detroit recipe, so enjoy!  These Detroit style wings are honey glazed as they grill and tossed with a sweet and spicy sauce right off the heat. Challenge your friends with more cayenne and hot sauce, or pull back the heat and serve with a blue cheese dressing to calm the fire!


2 pounds chicken wings, tips discarded
1 teaspoon cayenne pepper (add more if you can stand it)
salt and ground black pepper to taste
1 cup honey
1/2 cup butter, melted
1/2 cup hot sauce

Preheat an outdoor grill for medium heat and lightly oil grate.

Wash the wings well and pat dry with paper towel. Season the meat with cayenne, salt, and pepper.

Cook the chicken wings on preheated grill until cooked through and juices run clear, 20 to 30 minutes depending on the size of the wings. Brush the wings liberally using 1/2 cup of honey while they are cooking.

Melt the butter, pour into a large bowl and mix in the remaining 1/2 cup of honey and hot sauce. Remove the wings from the grill and immediately toss them in the hot honey butter sauce to coat. Serve the wings 'wet' or return them to the grill for 1 minute per side to set the sauce.
