These wings should really be called “left” or “right” wings because they go perfectly with a good hockey game. Gather friends, beer and wings in one spot and allow to mingle – I promise the outcome will be delicious.
- 1 medium shallot, minced
- ½ cup tomato paste
- 3 tablespoons olive oil
- 2 tablespoons balsamic vinegar
- 1 tablespoon dijon mustard
- juice of one lemon
- 4 tablespoons dark brown sugar
- 3 tablespoons fresh brewed coffee
- ½ head of roasted garlic
- 1 teaspoon tabasco (or more if you like it spicy)
- salt and pepper to personal taste
- about 20 chicken wings
- Cut wings apart at joint and rinse. Put wings into large stock pot and cover with water. Bring to a boil, remove and rinse again then allow to cool.
- Mix together the rest of the ingredients in a large bowl, taste for addition of any ingredients. Reserve about 1/3 of marinade in separate bowl. Add wings to bowl and toss to cover. Leave to marinate overnight in the fridge or two hours at room temperature.
- Grill wings on barbeque or indoor grill or roast at 400˚F – 425˚F in the oven until marinade starts to darken and wings begin to dry out slightly. Serve with veggies and blue cheese or a pepper sour cream dip.
The only comment I could wrench out of the guys about these wings was that they could have been slightly spicier. I think next time I would use spice-infused olive oil and add some red chilis to the marinade.
