The most enjoyable part of watching sports for me is the food. One of my favourite game day dishes is chicken wings. They are one of those party foods that you can make in large quantities and with very little effort involved.
Traditionally, chicken wings are deep-fried to get a crunchy skin. Here is a way to make crispy and saucy wings but without all of that oil. In this recipe, the wings are baked and then broiled for a short time with a sweet and spicy sauce.
For this recipe, I have used LiberTerre chicken wings. LiberTerre chicken is raised without the use of antibiotics and hormones and are also grain fed and raised in Canada. Their chicken is also air-chilled which keeps the meat tender and juicy when cooked and preserves the natural great flavour of the chicken.
If you have a lot to prepare for game day, there is a little cheat you can use that will make this recipe even easier. The night before, create the rub and coat the wings. In a separate container, prepare the sauce. Cover and refrigerate both bowls overnight. On game day, simply bake then broil your wings according to the recipe below and you’ve eliminated any game day prep involved so you won’t miss out on any awesome plays!
If you don’t like spice, reduce or eliminate the cayenne pepper and Sriracha sauce from the recipe.
I’ve also made sure this recipe is really easy to make so that even the most reluctant home cooks and sports fans can get a touchdown in the kitchen! Enjoy!
