Spicy Herb and Garlic Wings

I’m not sure what happened. Something came over me when I was making the sauce for these spicy herb and garlic wings. The aroma was crazy good. My mouth was watering. I was so anxious to try it on wings. Though I admit to having quite a few ‘samples’ of the sauce as the wings cooked…. This stuff is great. Savory, herby, garlicky with just the perfect amount of heat.

Spicy Herb and Garlic Wings

There’s absolutely nothing I’d change about these spicy herb and garlic wings. I really liked them. If you aren’t a fan of heat, you can definitely leave out the cayenne. But I liked it. It’s not overpowering by any stretch. And of course you can add more, or use less.

You’ll enjoy these wings as much as I did.

Baked Salsa Verde Wings

Oh, yum! Juicy, flavorful wings! I had no idea how great of a marinade salsa verde could be. It really added a fantastic flavor to these wings. They were so tender, yet still had a nicely crunchy skin. Served with citrus salsa verde cream sauce for dipping, I really enjoyed these wings!

Baked Salsa Verde Wings

If you have any juices on the baking dish as the wings cook, brush it back onto the wings for extra flavor. I found it important to turn the wings often to get a nice even cook and also crunchy skin. I did not have to put the wings under the broiler to crunch them up, these baked salsa verde wings didn’t need it!

Wicked Sticky Wings

Warning: The term ‘sticky’ is a tremendous understatement when it comes to describing these Wicked Sticky wings. Think sticky molasses, and then think stickier. Don’t spill the sauce (like someone I know might have done) or you will be cleaning counter tops and sinks and what-not for days. Trust me. Now, on to the wings…

These wings are crazy good. Wicked heat. Sticky sweet. I made them crispy style on my Char-Broil Big Easy, but you can make them anyway you like, from smoking them to deep frying them. It’s the sauce that shines here, and boy is it messy great. Wicked sticky wings are called that for a reason.

Wicked Sticky Wings

I went simple with the dipping sauce for these wings. Just straight-out-of-the-bottle chilled Ranch dressing. Nothing fancy, just something to offset the kick of the sauce just a bit.

Instructions

For the sauce
