March brings to mind two things: Spring break and March Madness. Sadly, the first, and more exciting of the two is over, which means that March Madness has begun! The time when we all pretend we’ve been following College basketball and cheer on our “favourite” (or the best) team.
When I think about food to eat while watching sports chicken wings are the first thing that come to mind. They are probably one of the most loved foods to eat whilst watching a sporting event, whether it be the Superbowl, or say, the World Figure Skating Championships. In my opinion wings should always be on the table.
These are not your typical chicken wings, oh no, these are much better. And they’re baked, not fried! The sweet and spicy, tangy and smoky flavors are unusual and perfect. Rubbed with a simple spice rub before cooking enhances the flavours, of the wings, and the Chipotle pepper is what gives them that smoky flare which takes them over the edge. The molasses in the sauce gives them that finger-licking factor, and the Dijon mustard lends a tangy bite. I promise you, these wings will be a new favourite.
