11 Days of Super Bowl Recipes: Chicken Wings

In honor of the upcoming Super Bowl, I wanted to share some of my FAVE Game Day food ideas with you so you can be the Super Bowl MVP of your party!!!

But, why 11??! πŸ™ƒ

Two reasons:

1. My fave wide receiver, Larry Fitzgerald, wears #11. And – fun fact – he’s from Minnesota, the home of this year’s Super Bowl!

2. The Super Bowl is in 14 days & I want you to have a few days to get your shopping done in time. Not blow you away with some grand finale idea in the 11th hour that has you running to the grocery store the night before! You’re welcome. πŸ˜‰
Now… since you can’t have Game Day food ideas without the quintessential Game Day food… I figured we’d start with chicken wings!

To make the wings healthier, I baked them instead of frying them. It may not get them quite as crispy, but will save you some guilt-free room for the other recipes coming!! And If you have an oven-safe wire rack, place that on a baking sheet with the wings on top of the rack to ensure crisper wings!

Bake at 400 for 45-50 minutes [or longer, if cooking from frozen]. Baste with extra sauce & turn wings. Bake for another 8-10 minutes, or until the internal temp is 160Β°.

Maple Glazed Wings

2 TB. Butter, melted

1 TB. Pink Himalayan Salt

1 TB. Ground Black Pepper

1/3 c. Maple Syrup [I πŸ’› The Maple Guild!]

2 TB. Mustard

2 TB. White Balsamic Vinegar

2 TB. Tamari Sauce

2 tsp. Sriracha

1 clove Garlic, minced

1/2 tsp. Ground Cumin

1/4 tsp. Crushed Red Pepper Flakes

Mix all together in measuring cup. Cover wings in half the sauce, reserving the second half for the end of baking.

Chipotle BBQ Wings

2 TB. Brown Sugar

2 TB. Ground Chipotle Powder

1 TB. Paprika

1 TB. Garlic Powder

1 TB. Dry Mustard

1 TB. Ground Cumin

1 TB. Pink Himalayan Salt

Mix all together & pour into Ziploc bag. Drop in wings & shake until covered.

Buffalo Wings &/or BBQ Wings

To save yourself some time & energy, if you don’t want to make your own buffalo sauce, Frank’s Hot Sauce does the trick for me. Simple & easy.

With BBQ, which I have an aversion to since I dropped one during the recent Super Bowl the Broncos won [πŸ™ˆπŸ˜…πŸ™ˆ], I recommend Sweet Baby Ray’s if you don’t want to whip up your own!

Serve with carrots & celery, with a side of ranch. Lighter beer like Stella or Heineken pair well with these wings. Enjoy!!!!
