Green Jalapeno Hot Wings

Chicken wings are a perfect party food and with Super bowl just around the corner, you need to go ahead and put these delicious wings on your list. These roasted buffalo-style chicken wings are covered in a spicy green jalapeno sauce, which is pureed with pickled jalapenos for an extra kick of heat.



Green Jalapeno Hot Wings
4-6 servings
Recipe from Food and Wine


Ingredients:
5lb. chicken wings and drumettes
Salt and freshly ground pepper
1/2 cup green jalapeno hot sauce
2 tablespoon coarsley chopped pickled jalapenos
1 stick unsalted butter
2 large garlic cloves, minced
1/2 cup plain nonfat yogurt
1/4 cup mayonnaise
1 tablespoon apple cider vinegar
2 ounces blue cheese, crumbled (1/2 cup)
celery sticks for serving

Directions:
1. Preheat the oven to 500 degrees F and position 2 racks in the middle and upper third. Spread the wings out on 2 baking sheets in a single layer and season with salt and pepper. Roast for 40 minutes, turning once, until wings are golden and crisp.

2. Meanwhile, in a mini-food processor, puree the hot sauce and pickled jalapenos until smooth. In a small saucepan, cook the butter with the garlic over moderate heat just until fragrant, about 2 minutes. Add the puree to the saucepan and bring to a simmer. Transfer the sauce to a large bowl. Rinse out processor.

3. Add the yogurt, mayonnaise, vinegar and blue cheese to the processor and pulse until fairly smooth. Season with salt and pepper and transfer to a small bowl.

4. Using tongs, transfer the chicken wings to the bowl with the hot sauce and toss to coat. Pour the wings and any extra sauce onto a large platter and serve right away, passing the blue cheese dip and celery sticks at the table.

what a unique sauce for wings... Love these!

But since the SAINTS are Super Bowl bound, you should adapt to a Cajun wing recipe...

It seems you are a big chicken fan, but aren't we all. Thanks for introducing a twist on an old favorite.

powderate said...

The funny thing about wings, it used to be producers had an excess of wings and no where for them to go... along game hot wings and now producers wish they had chickens with four wings.

Claudia said...

Perfect. Timely and chicken wings are on sale here - cheap! And it's all about the sauce- and you have it in spades.

Donna-FFW said...

Chicken wings are the perfect munchie for superbowl, but with this sauce, it is taken to a higher level. Sounds delightful!

Kathleen said...

Yum! Chicken wings are the bomb! Your sauce sounds de-lish!

Great recipe and great idea! I would just have added three times the amount of garlic!

Innova is great food but high on protein. Makes it fatty. My shibas are trying Wellness for seniors now. Biljack is pretty good food, and ours love the training treats.
