Piri Piri Wings

Piri Piri Wings

Piri piri wings have been on my radar for quite awhile to try out, but not being all that familiar with piri piri sauce, I've let them sit on the sidelines for a long time. Nothing has really changed about my knowledge and interaction piri piri sauce, but I decided to just go for it this year, knowing that one day I'll probably look back and know what I put out into the world may have been somewhat ill-informed, although it is certainly delicious. So with that disclaimer, here's my first shot at some piri piri wings.

Thai Red Curry Wings

Thai Red Curry Wings

With my increased interest in Thai cooking over the past year, it should come as no surprise there would be a Thai-inspired wing tossed into the mix of this year's Wing Month. The main reason I began cooking Thai food at home was to try to get more authentic flavors than what local restaurants serve up, and having familiarized myself with a lot of those special ingredients, these Thai red curry wings take full advantage of that knowledge and make no compromise or substitutions on what's more traditional. That may make the final recipe a little daunting to some, but you have to trust me, seeking out and learning about these flavors and ingredients pays off immensely in the end.

Chicken Wings Inasal

TGIJ: Thank god it's January, otherwise known at The Meatwave as Wing Month! For those new to the blog, I devote the first month of each new year entirely to one of my favorite foods—chicken wings. It always feels like an arduous wait to get here though because I develop these wing recipes throughout the year and then sit on them until we hit January, and these are usually some of my favorite things I've cooked, making holding off on sharing them pretty tough. But alas, Wing Month has arrived and the chicken will floweth for five glorious weeks, starting off with these Filipino-inspired chicken wings inasal.

Smoked Curried Chicken Salad Sandwiches

Smoked Curried Chicken Salad Sandwiches

Oh man, it's been five years since I last made a chicken salad. That kind of boggles my mind because that last recipe for a smoked chicken salad was a real winner, and I enjoyed having leftovers in the house for a few days to make easy lunches and snacks. After making that recipe too, I had all these ideas for different types of chicken salad that I left unrealized until recently when I decided to make this smoked curried chicken salad.

Buffalo Chicken Jalapeño Poppers

Buffalo Chicken Jalapeño Poppers

Jalapeño poppers have long been a go-to item for me to bring to parties for so many reasons—they're easy to make, taste great both hot and after sitting around for a bit, pair really well with beer, and I personally don't tire of them and will keeping popping (pun intended) them all night long. The classic jalapeño, cream cheese, and bacon combo is still my favorite, but I've experimented with new recipes for them throughout my long history of this blog, including adding lil smokies, wrapping with sausage, using cherry peppers, and more. After a Super Bowl party last year, where multiple guests brought Buffalo chicken dip, I thought of the idea of using that as a stuffer instead of plain cream cheese, and decided to actually try it out at the final Meatwave of 2019.
