Foodie Friday - TGIF!

It's Friday! Finally, time to celebrate with food, friends and fun. We're all invited to a potluck at Michael's aka Gollum at http://designsbygollum.blogspot.com/ Can't wait to see what everyone is bringing this week. And of course, browse her gorgeous blog to see what she has been up to. Her home is gorgeous, and wait til you see her tablescapes!

This week I'm sharing what has become one of my favorite "go to" meals. It's easy, quick and uses readily available ingredients. It's also easy to double or triple for a crowd. I'm serving it for dinner tonight, but these are great for a buffet or party snacks.

I first saw this in Everyday with Rachel Ray. PB & J sticky wings. I thought they sounded great, but DH tends to be a little less adventurous with food ingredients. So I just told him they were oven baked sticky wings! I waited until after he asked for seconds to tell him how they were made. Start out by whisking the ingredients together. I know it doesn't look very appetizing, but it is a great marinade.

Next, let the wings go swimming for awhile - anywhere from an hour to overnight.

See, they really do come out nicely. I like to serve them with sweet potato fries, a nice green vegetable and some sweet tea. Easy and delicious - or as Rachel would say "yummo"


PB & J Sticky Wings - Everyday with Rachel Ray

Ingredients:

1/2 C natural peanut butter
1 10 oz jar of grape jelly
1/4 C red wine vinegar
1/4 tsp hot pepper sauce (I use 1/2 tsp plus a few more "shots" for good measure)
1/4 tsp salt
12 chicken wings, tips discarded and separated at the joints (I cheat and use the little drumettes)
Cilantro, for garnish

In a large bowl or plastic container, whisk together the peanut butter, jelly, red wine vinegar, hot sauce and salt. Place wings in the marinade, turning to coat well. Marinate for 1 hour up to over night.

Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Place a greased rack on a foil lined baking sheet. Place wings on rack, bake for 30 minutes. Turn, marinate with pan juices, bake for additional 20 minutes. Garnish with cilantro if desired.


Hope you enjoy these as much as we do. Now let's go to Michael's and see what else is on the menu!

If it's got peanut butter, I'm there. :-) I have been searching for meals like this--they look and taste great and you don't have to spend 50 hours in the kitchen. Thanks so much!
