Zorba Wings


Looking at the recipes, it occurs to me that I've never seen such a multitude of chicken wing recipes -- Buffalo, barbecue, Asian, Spanish, you-name-it. So I decided to try something different, experimented, and came up with this -- a Greek-inspired, or at least sauced with some Greek-influenced flavors, wing served with tzatziki. I think I'll serve it for this weekend's Arkansas-Alabama showdown on Saturday afternoon!

What you will need

3 pounds chicken wings

1 small can tomato paste

1 large red bell pepper, roasted and peeled

1 large white onion, diced

3 cloves garlic, minced

2 tablespoons olive oil

1/2 teaspoon cinnamon

1 teaspoon dried oregano

1/2 cup red wine, not too dry

1/2 teaspoon red pepper flakes, or to taste

1/2 teaspoon fennel seed, toasted and ground

1/2 cup chicken broth

3 tablespoons brown sugar

1 cup Greek yogurt

1 medium cucumber, seeded and grated

1 tablespoon fresh lemon juice

1 tablespoon fresh chopped dill weed
