When your boyfriend loves wings you naturally try and perfect your wing game. Buffalo and barbecue are always a good go-to, with possibly a dry rub thrown into the mix. That being said, I am here to advise we can get a little more creative and it's sure to pay off!
The perfect sweet and spicy recipe for you. The sauce has orange marmalade to add some sweetness which is balanced by the addition of a small amount of chipotles in adobo. Or should I say small. Either way, proceed with caution with those bad boys! If you're particularly wild, you can always dip the finished wings in a little adobo sauce.
Start by making the wings. A key to this recipe is that the skin is crispy underneath the sauce. Crispy wings are necessary. At least half an hour before you plan on baking the wings, you'll want to take them out of the fridge, dry each one super well, and lay them out on your cookie sheet, and put that back in the fridge. You want the wings to be super dry before they go in the oven and this step helps achieve that. Plus, they'll get tossed in baking powder before going in the oven which is also key!
Once you get those in the oven you'll make the sauce. It looks like a lot of ingredients, but I promise it's super quick to throw together. There is no cooking required so everything is just mixed together in the largest bowl you can find. It's super easy to just toss the hot wings in the sauce right when they get out of the oven, so you'll want a large bowl so the wings have all the space they need to get a good mix.
Once the wings are super saucy, you'll want to put them back in the oven under the broiler for a few minutes which will get that orange marmalade nice and sticky. It also gives them a little bit of a char which in my opinion is delicious!
Peep the delicious char. Also peep the Maldon salt sprinkle. Maldon > Everything.
And there you have it! A simple wing recipe that is sure to impress the wing-lovers in your life. Perfect for game day, or in my boyfriend's opinion, any and every day.
Grab some ranch, (and a stack of napkins), and have at it!
The stickiest, sauciest orange wings that will wow the wing-lovers in your life.
