Almost every Friday, one of my curling team members orders hot wings. I sit, watching him and drool over his wings. But, I know that the best wings are homemade, so I refuse to order them myself. Instead, R and I usually end up defrosting these awesomely awesome Buffalo wings.
I decided to shake things up and expand my chicken wing horizons. So, I tried Jaden's Steamy Kitchen's Chino-Latino Wings
prep time: 3 minutes; cook time 20 minutes
2 lbs chicken wings
2 Chipotle peppers + 1 tablespoon Adobo sauce (each can should have about 10 peppers inside…start with 2)
1/4 cup Hoisin sauce
1/4 cup water
2 tablespoons brown sugar
1/2 lime, squeezed
1 teaspoon minced garlic
Combine marinade ingredients in blender or food processor. Puree until thickened. Taste. If you want spicier, add another chili and another tablespoon of adobo. Press down on wings to flatten as much a possible. Marinate chicken wings for at least 1 hour.
Grill on BBQ Grill - 8-10 minutes each side. Note that Jaden likes to grill her wings whole. If you separate the wing joints, shave off a minute of cooking time as there will be more surface contact with grill grates.
Sprinkle with sesame seeds (not depicted below) and serve.
I followed some online advice and froze the remainder of my chipotle peppers in a ziplock bag. Apparently, it works well because you can just break off a piece when desired. But, I now have a bag full of chipotle peppers - so if anyone has any recommendations for chipotle recipes, please send them my way.
