Calabrian Chili & Roast Garlic Chicken Wings with Chive Garnish

 

INGREDIENTS:

  • 1 ½ cups Calabrian chili purée
  • 1½ cups garlic purée
  • 1 cup white wine vinegar
  • 1 cup of honey
  • 7 ounces can of adobo chilies (chopped)
  • 3 cups olive oil
  • 3 ounces chives

 

METHOD:

  1. Finely slice the chives and set aside.
  2. Combine remaining ingredients in a bowl. Whisk in 3 cups olive oil, or use blender, making sure to emulsify.
  3. Salt to taste and set aside.
  4. Toss 24 wings in salt and pepper in a large mixing bowl.
  5. If you are using charcoal or gas make sure the all the heat is evenly distributed for even cooking. Place the wings on the grill and let them cook for about 6-8 minutes per side depending on the size.
  6. For the last 2 minutes of cooking, after wings have gathered nice golden color, use a brush or clean food-safe kitchen towel to glaze the wings with the sauce. Flip each side over, and repeat. Avoid glazing directly onto the fire source to prevent flare up and smoke out.
  7. Continue cooking until wings have an internal temperature of 160º. They should be glossy and evenly charred.
  8. Remove from grill and garnish with chives.

This summer, grill like a chef. Here’s how!
