Recipe: Maple Walnut Wings | #WingingIt

My maple walnut wings are really moreish, if I do say so myself! I didn’t add any spicy heat to them but chipotle or Tabasco would go well with them (and it’s easy enough to incorporate on your own). I would encourage you to try these as suggested in the recipe first though, to get a taste of just how yummy chicken, maple and walnut are together. Continue reading

Pretty much any cola can be used for this recipe, but I recommend Karma Cola. It’s tastier than others in my opinion.

Recipe: Coconut Oil, Chipotle and Sesame Wings | #WingingIt

My recipe for coconut oil, chipotle and sesame wings is totally about big flavour indulgence, but there’s an argument to categorise these wings as health food. Nutritious coconut oil is so much better for you than most other oils while superfood sesame seeds are an excellent source for manganese, copper, calcium, magnesium, iron, phosphorus, vitamin B1, zinc and dietary fibre.
