BuffaloSpree.com's Recipe of the week: Exotic Wing Recipes



kc Kratt

 

We know there are few wings out there better than wings prepared by our own local wing havens (like the one shown above—an order of extra crispy medium wings from Allentown's Gabriel's Gate), but Superbowl is a time when semi-warm wings delivered from your local pizza joint just aren't good enough.

We're sure most WNY homecooks are pretty confident about their chicken wing skills, but we thought we'd post some of these recipes, created by Chef Joe George for our September 2007 issue of Buffalo Spree. Here he does away with the traditional sauce and the increasingly popular barbecue variety, and instead gives us more exotic interpretations—perfect for game day.

5-7 jalapeno peppers
2 tablespoons vinegar

Combine all the ingredients except the wings in a food processor and puree until smooth. Toss raw chicken wings with the marinade and refrigerate 1 hour or overnight. Roast or grill the wings 30 minutes, or until fully cooked.
