Christmas comes in like a whirlwind, and leaves you in a house that is upside down and with an overtired bunch of kids surrounded by boxes of unopened toys. Do not get me wrong, Christmas is fun. It is great to spend time with family, eat tons of great home cooked food, and the smiles and laughs from my kids that make every dime spent and moment of planning worth it.
Now that the holiday season is over, some of my favorite foods are on deck. Lighter dishes, citrus desserts, and of course football appetizers.
My husband is a huge fan of chicken wings of every kind, Buffalo, Chinese, BBQ. He eats every last piece of meat of those bones and practically sucks them clean, leaving behind a chicken bone yard.
Over the weekend, I was watching the Food Network and saw a recipe for Andrew Zimmerman's Grandmother's Chinese Chicken Wings, and at 7am in the morning, I wanted nothing more than a huge plate of those wings. I got dressed and ran to Market Basket to get all of the ingredients.
I did make some adaptations to the recipe, however I stuck to his methods, the result? The best damned Asian inspired wings I have ever laid my fingers on.
