Almost 700 recipes on here and this is the first one for chicken wings. There are like, twenty for scones though. Clearly I like to cook what I like to eat. Chicken wings have never been my favorite; that is, until I had the olive oil and herb wings at Anthony’s Coal Fire Pizza kitchen.
Those wings are my husbands favorite take out and I’ve stolen my fair share off his plate over the years. I realized, wings don’t have to be smothered in buttery hot sauce. It’s chicken, it will taste however you want to make it taste. That being said, when I saw a recipe in my Clean Eating mag for wings in which every single ingredient was A-okay on my husband’s diet, I was pumped to try my hand at wing-making. You can grill them, you can fry them, but for this recipe I roasted them. I changed a few things from the original recipe, which included adding a kick of heat. Feel free to omit if that’s not your thing. Perfect for entertaining but why wouldn’t it work for dinner?
