Bandit Wings

The best wings pack flavor into every bite, all the way through. These bandit wings have flavor and then some. They are marinated overnight, picking up a light soy sauce flavor along with a hint of cumin and chili powder. Sort of southwestern meets Asian.

Bandit wings definitely to not require a sauce. You don’t want to hide the fantastic flavors. I did have a little blue cheese dressing on the side for dipping but I used it sparingly.
Bandit WingsThe original recipe called for garnishing the cooked wings with black sesame seeds. Apparently they’re as rare as a unicorn here so I went with plain ole ‘normal’ sesame seeds. You get that bit of sesame seed flavor either way.

My crab-boil wings are also brined overnight for great flavor!

I absolutely love chicken wings, cooked any way, with any sauce (or without). I love them so much that I created a free eCookbook that is full of my favorite wing recipes. Also check out my always-growing list of my favorite store-bought wing sauces.
