Adobo Hot Wings


Oven-fried, tender-crispy chicken wings with an addictive blast of that unmistakable tangy, sweet heat of Filipino adobo, kicked up to new levels of fiery frizzle sizzle. I'm having so much fun exploring the Filipino part of my heritage. (Thanks, Dad!) Now, I just can't understand what took me so long to catch onto the delectably unique layering of flavors that so many traditional dishes from the Philippines are known for. Flavors that like to reach out and hit you right in the kisser. Pow! *Thanks to Burnt Lumpia food blog for inspiring me to create some hot wings with a definite vinegary tang of Filipino adobo that has become one of our family's favorite standby dishes.*
