I made a quick stop at our local Fresh Thyme to pick up some of their fresh-made bratwurst (fantastic!) and some bacon (which is also fantastic). Any time I’m in a grocery store I make a pass through the wing sauces. I noticed Fresh Thyme’s Zesty Buffalo wing sauce on the shelf and grabbed a bottle (along with their other flavors of wing sauces). The sauce looked great. It had yummy-looking things floating in it. My mouth began to water at the thought of what was in store for me. And for good reason! This is a fantastic, lightly spicy, good sauce. It’s just delicious. Finger-licking delicious. This is a real winner with just the right consistency and the price was great too!
The spices used in the Fresh Thyme Zesty Buffalo wing sauce make for a great taste. It’s based on a fairly traditional wing sauce, but the flavor and spiciness is unique. I couldn’t have been happier with it. And even though it has just a little kick to it, it doesn’t hit hard. I think even my “I can’t stand spiciness” friends would love this sauce too!
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.
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.
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!
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!
