Things that really matter - I haven't been very blog-active lately. My sister came from the States with her little son, so I spent some time with them and didn't have any left to blog...
Last week-end we had a family barbercue, and I used an old recipe to spice chicken (it is originally for chicken brochettes, but I used it for wings with tremendous success). I've been using this recipe for several years, and each time people keep talking about it for weeks after the barbecue. It's not my invention, but I don't remember where it came from...
So here's the things you should mix to put on around 2kgs of chicken wings. I suggest you let the wings rest a couple of hours in the refrigerator before putting them on the fire, so the tastes would be better impregnated.
Of course, the quantities are rough approximations and should be altered to suite your own taste.
- Paprika (sweet, not hot) - 3 table spoons
- Crushed Chili Pepper - 1 tea spoons
- Cumin - 3 tea spoons
- Cinnamon - 1 to 2 tea spoons
- Nutmeg - 1 to 2 tea spoons
- Crushed Garlic - 3 tea spoons
- Lemon Juice - of 2 to 3 fresh lemons
- Ground Black Pepper
- Olive Oil - about 1 cup
You mix it all thoroughly and make sure all parts of the chicken are fully smeared with this stuff. After a couple of hours, put it on the barbecue and have some of the best chicken wings you've ever known!
I'd be glad to hear how it went...
