Chicken (Bat) Wings for Halloween

 In Chicken, Snacks

Chicken (bat) wings

I know. These chicken wings don’t look like anything you would drool over. But that’s kind of the point with Halloween, right? There’s something quite charming about food that’s made to gross you out. Like making red pepper hummus and calling it “Brain Puree” and serving it with crudite or simply labelling Prosciutto “Cured Epidermis” (Clever Martha Stewart!).

I’ve had to convince my family and friends to try these and once they did, they loved them. The sweet, Asian-inspired marinade adds lovely flavour and who doesn’t love a sticky wing?

    And I’m assuming these will both taste AND look delicious if you were to just leave out the black dye any other time of the year 🙂
