Chicken wings are a popular appetizer and they seem like the go-to for game day. These Garlic Ginger Chicken Wings are going to be a big hit, and you might consider making these at your next football party!
Make them yourself or save the recipe and delegate these wings to your trusted co-chef as you get the menu ready. I am all about delegating, so it’s pretty much a guarantee I’ll pass off a recipe or two on a willing helper.
I must admit, chicken wings are not my all-time favorite. I like them, but only coated with certain sauces.
They have to be just “so”. I do like the sweet and spicy combo of Root Beer Chicken Wings. Bloody Mary Chicken Wings are on my wing bucket list.
I don’t often order wings when I go out to eat because I’m usually disappointed. But homemade wings, made by me or a friend, are usually spot on.
I’ve tried wings served as a side dish with a salad for dinner and that was a good idea. They’re typically an appetizer food so that was a welcome treat.
Why wait for a get-together with appetizers and a huge menu when you can just have wings for dinner? I thought you’d appreciate that little tip since you seem to like wings. 🙂
I like the idea of using soda to make a sauce-y glaze for chicken wings. It adds a sweetness that can contrast a spicy or savory flavor.
In this case, the ginger and garlic meld into a delicious symphony that coat the chicken wings for a flavor well worth the time. The Root Beer Chicken Wings I mentioned earlier use root beer and red pepper flakes for a sweet and spicy combo.
Give these Garlic Ginger Chicken Wings a try! You and your guests will love them.
