This year, I am greeting Labor Day with joy for the weekend kicks off a change in the seasons. Football games. Cooler weather. Autumn is coming and I want to be done with the summer of 2012 and the intense heat and drought. I am among those that grill all year long—but this weekend I was longing for a change there too, and wanted to grill something different. It had to be easy and fun. For me, it was Chipotle Orange Chicken Wings.
Sticky, messy, finger licking good—everything a wing should be. It is just a natural to serve when gathering to watch the game on television or any evening when friends gather to linger outside and enjoy the cooler evenings.
Roxanne and I love to cook together—and always are sharing new recipes with each other. Yet, we giggle about our different taste preferences. I love sweeter, fruit based sauces on chicken or meat. This fits that description—and yet, I bet Roxanne will like it because it has a captivating spicy kick from the chipotle peppers. Sweet and spicy makes a winning combination.
