Garlic Ginger Chicken Wings
I love food, and some days I find myself daydreaming about what I consider to be the perfect foods. Foods that love you unconditionally, no matter how you cook them or serve them. And I do believe that chicken wings are at the top of my list.
Oh sweet chicken wings, how do I love thee, let me count the ways…..sigh. I’ve found a new way to serve my wings that also includes my favorite mixer and childhood friend 7UP.
What ingredients do I need to make Garlic Ginger Chicken Wings?
Let’s start by gathering the ingredients we need to make Garlic Ginger Chicken Wings. In Chef Speak this is called the “Mise en Place” which translates to “Everything in its Place”.
Not only does setting your ingredients up ahead of time speed up the cooking process, it also helps ensure you have everything you need to make the dish.
Do I have to use 7-up to make these wings?
No, you don’t, you can use ginger ale, club soda or sparkling wine.
Experimenting with flavors is a fun way to enjoy your time in the kitchen. And recipes should be thought of as guidelines for you to follow. If you don’t like a certain ingredient or flavor, replace it with something you do like. That’s a sure-fire way to make sure you enjoy the foods you’re cooking. Although there’s a lot to be said for trying new flavors, and the rule of thumb is to try it three times before you decide it’s not for you.
Marinating proteins is a delicious way to impart flavors to the foods you cook. Some proteins need to marinate longer, but 20-30 minutes is usually enough to add flavor to your what you’re cooking.
Wouldn’t this make a delicious appetizer or game-day treat? I know your friends and family will love these flavorful easy to make chicken wings!
