Sophisticated Wings!

Okay, so HERE’s the first hoity-toity recipe on the blog..

SOPHISTICATED HOT WINGS with a sweet n’ spicy marinade and smoked paprika dipping sauce

Chicken wing sections are marinated in a mixture of red wine, chicken broth, garlic, smoked paprika, honey, and vinegar, then grilled (or broiled). They are served with a dipping sauce of low-fat ranch dressing, sherry, smoked paprika and cilantro.

INGREDIENTS:
• FOR THE MARINADE
• Chicken drummets, thawed 1 bag (25-30 pieces)frozen
• Garlic cloves, crushed 6
• Dry red wine 1 1/2 cups
• Chicken broth 1/2 cup
• Smoked paprika 2 tsp.
• Honey 1 1/2 tbsp.
• Sherry vinegar 3 tbsp.
• Salt 2 tsp.
• Ground pepper 1 tbsp.
• Brown sugar 1/4 cup

• FOR THE DIPPING SAUCE
• Low-fat Ranch dressing 1 1/2 cups
• Dry sherry wine 2 tsp.
• Smoked paprika 1/2 tsp.
• Chopped cilantro 2 tsp.

METHOD:
Combine the first 10 ingredients in a large bowl. Combine well, then divide into two ziplock bags. Refrigerate and marinate overnight.

The next day, preheat a gas grill to HIGH heat (OR BROIL). Drain the chicken drummets in a colander, then lightly coat with some olive oil. Sprinkle with a pinch of sea salt and grill the drummets, turning often for 6-7 minutes until firm and cooked through. While chicken cooks, stir remaining ingredients together. Serve drummets stacked on top of one another on a medium serving platter. Serve with the smoked paprika dipping sauce.

NOTES:
This recipe is basically hot wings for adults. The wings are marinated overnight. The marinade gives the already-spicey flavor an earthy sophistication from the wine and additional ingredients. Smoked paprika is used here. If it is not available in your area, regular will do fine.
