Chicken Tikka Wings

Chicken Tikka Wings

Wing Month is my favorite time of year on this blog and it's always hard to put it to rest. This year that's a little easier due to how the calendar falls—we all get to enjoy a bonus wing recipe! I saved a good, and decidedly different, one to close out our 2020 wing extravaganza with this Indian chicken tikka wings recipe. I developed the marinade a while back for a more standard chicken tikka recipe that utilized breast meat, but wings are so much tastier, which I think made this the superior tikka incarnation that you have to try.

Yakitori Wings

The start of the 2020 Meatwave season is still a few months off, but I can't help already planning and getting excited for that day. Part of the reason I'm jumping the gun a little with plotting recipes is that I decided to make the kickoff a Tiki-influence affair after a similar cookout last year was one of the most fun events we've ever hosted. I had a few wing recipes in contention to grill up that day, but these yakitori wings won out the others mainly because they made use of a tare sauce I was already producing as a finishing glaze for bacon-wrapped mochi. Just like that mochi, these didn't disappoint with their addictive sweet and savory profile that made going for seconds and thirds a must!

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

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.
