Chicken Wings & Happy New Years Day

Happy New Year's Day to you. Hello January 1, 2014. It feels weird typing that. I was just getting used to typing/writing 2013. What can you do? Nothing exactly. Well you could finish off some chicken wings with me. They are awesome. I took the same sauce I used on some regular sized chicken and used them on wings instead. It was right before we sent the kiddo to bed, proceeded to drink too much, and stay up watching like 10 episodes of "How I Met Your Mother". Yeah I am exhausted.  It was legend wait for it airy. So back to the chicken wings.... you know the Superbowl is coming up. You are going to need to have some good snacks/apps. Just sayin'. 

Asian Chicken Wings
prep + bake time: 1hr & 5 minutes* if wings are already divided the wing from the tiny drumstick

raw chicken wings, divided at the joint if they aren't done already - I used half the tray so like 12 maybe
1 Tbs veg oil
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 tsp pepper
1 Tbs lime juice
1 Tbs chipotle ketchup
3 Tbs hoisin sauce

1. Preheat the oven to 375. 

2. Mix the chicken, oil, salt, and pepper in a large ziplock bag or equivalent. Make sure the wings are coated.

3. While the oven is preheating mix the lime, ketchup, and hoisin sauce in a large bowl for tossing the wings in later. Line a cookie sheet with foil. Spray a rack with nonstick spray. Put the rack over the foil for good air and heat circulation (ie...the perfect crispy baked chicken wing). 

4. Bake the wings for 50 minutes - 1 hr and then toss them with the sauce. 

5. Serve immediately & eat while still warm like this cutie munching away at his new years eve feast :)

Enjoy 2014
Happy Jan 1 to you & your family
