It wasn’t until last year or so that I started liking chicken wings. Now I seek them out. Seriously. How could I have gone so long without eating these things.
It was a preconceived notion I had of them being spicy. And if you read this blog, you know I do not do spicy. Well, until recently.
I’ve started incorporating more spices into my palette and I have to tell you, I’ve been missing out.
This Robert Rothschild Pineapple Coconut Mango Tequila Sauce came to my attention a couple of years ago when my cousin Yolanda brought it to an event. She poured it over cream cheese and we ate it with crackers. I was in love. Seriously. The flavors that melded together in this sauce was absolute perfection.
So when I started thinking what I wanted to put on my chicken wings, this sauce came to mind right away. I added some of my favorite BBQ sauce and honey to make it stick a little better. I ate six in one sitting. And if I hadn’t promised the girls at the office I would bring them some, I probably would have gorged myself on the entire lot of wings.
The technique for making the wings came from Fifteen Spatulas and it is perfect for this dish. The wings were crispy and didn’t need anything to make them so! I’ll be making these for the Super Bowl this coming weekend too. You can find the Robert Rothschild Pineapple Coconut Mango Tequila Sauce online at Amazon or at select grocery and specialty stores. If you can’t find it, you can use your own favorite sauce and incorporate other flavors to make your wings pop.
