It is game day here in Calgary with the Calgary Flames travelling to Anaheim for the first game in the second round of the Stanley Cup Playoffs.
I am not hugely into hockey, being born in the rain in the United Kingdom and not having been born on the ice like my Canadian neighbours here, but I love the playoffs and the energy behind the C of Red! Look at that fantastic crowd of Flames supporters!
Now an army marches on it’s stomach, the saying goes, so here is my recipe for delicious Game Day Spicy Garlic Chicken Wings so that you too are fuelled to support the Flames……and NO, you do not have to compromise your health just because your team does well in the play-offs!
These wings are like your regular wings without the fake fat, additives, preservatives and other chemical gloop that your regular chicken wings are cooked in.
Yes there is sugar here but it is in the form of local honey and yes there is fat, albeit organic butter (as much as you want people cos it IS game day!) but I think that we know each other well enough by now to get a little dirty!
One other thing. I always buy organic chicken wings, because this way I can guarantee they are antibiotic free.
I want to thank my good friend, fellow Holistic Nutritionist and Personal Chef Chrystal Chau for this fabulous recipe.
Go crazy, even if you live in Edmonton! and make them for the hockey fans in your house….. and Go Flames Go!
- 1lb organic chicken wings
- 2 heaped tbsp organic butter
- 5-6 cloves garlic finely chopped
- 1/4 cup raw local honey
- 1/2 tsp Worcestershire sauce
- 1/2 tsp hot sauce (Chrystal informs me that Franks Hot Sauce is the best)
- Cook the wings on parchment paper on a baking sheet for about 30 minutes at 400 degrees F until they start to crisp up.
- In the meantime stew the garlic gently in the butter in a small pan on a low heat on the stove top so that the garlic is melty soft but does not burn.
- Remove the garlic from the heat and add the honey, Worcestershire sauce and hot sauce to taste.
- In a non-plastic bowl, toss the hot wings and sauce together.
- Return the coated wings to the oven on the parchment paper and cook at 400 degrees F until they are crispy.
