EXTRA SPICY JERK WINGS

It was quite an extra spicy day in my kitchen. You see, I was asked to prepare and cook some chicken wings for a special occasion. Thus, I went to work feverishly. The ingredients were:

  • Chicken wings (approx. 12 lbs)
  • Onions (3 large) {minced in food processor)
  • Garlic (6 cloves) {minced in food processor)
  • Scallion (3 stalks)
  • Black pepper (sprinkle)
  • Salt (1 teaspoon per pound)
  • Paprika (sprinkle)
  • Jerk sauce (mild and hot)
  • Vinegar (a few splash)
  • Dark sugar (1 tablespoon)
  • Ketchup
  • Bell peppers (2 whole) for garnish and sauce
  • Pimento (all spice){1 table-spoon crushed]
  • Canola oil

Method:

Salt, black pepper, and paprika were used sparingly bearing in mind that jerk sauce contains a reasonable amount of sodium and other ingredients.

  1. Wings were first cut into two pieces; then were rinsed with fresh squeeze of lime.
  2. Excess water was removed by draining and drying with paper towel. A drizzle of canola oil was added for jerk sauce and other seasoning to adhere to wings.
  3. Onions, garlic and other ingredients and spices were pulsed in food processor and then added along with store-bought jars of jerk sauce (mild/hot).
  4. Wings were baked in a pre-heated 360 degree oven for 50 to 60 minutes turning once.
