Buffalo Falafel Pitas w/Garlic Blue Cheese Fries + Ranch Style Tzatziki.
So, remember Thursday and my boneless wings??
Well, today I am one upping those with real deal chicken wings.
I never thought I would actually make real deal chicken wings because to be honest they scare the heck out of me and seem totally intimidating, BUT then I got this amazing new cookbook that I am whole heartedly in love with.
Please tell me you guys know all about Stephanie Le of I am food Blog. If you don’t you have got to go check her out, she is totally inspiring and her recipes are so good. Stephanie just came out with her first cookbook, Easy Gourmet and well, you guys, it has moved to the top of my what seems to be ever-growing cookbook stack. It is full of all kinds of recipes that may seem totally gourmet and unapproachable for a busy weeknight, but… she made them easy. So very easy and so very good.
Her passion for food shines through every single page of the book. Everything from the photos to the little stories that come along with each recipe just make the book that much more personal. You really feel like you are right there cooking along with Stephanie in her kitchen. Which for me personally, is what I look for in good cookbooks.
There are so many recipes I cannot wait to make, I had such a hard time choosing which one to show you guys today. I went back and forth between the Baked Mac & Cheese, Mixed Paella, Homestyle Asian Pasta, Curry Chicken Pot Pie and the Miso Eggplant. Really, I want to make everything though!
Somehow, I went with the hot wings. I think it was more because I was just afraid of them and I wanted a little challenge. Turns out they are the easiest thing ever. Sure the raw chicken is a little nasty to handle (and it made me think of my cute little chickens I love so much down at the barn), but it’s all worth it in the end.
These are so good you guys.
My family kind of went a little nuts for them. I served them as dinner with, wait for it….rice! I mean, of course. But, you could serve them with fries or as an appetizer for parties or especially for game day. Whatever you are feeling.
Also, these are HOT wings. I used the full fourth of a cup of sriracha, but my family can handle spicy, if you prefer things a little milder then take it down to two tablespoons. Other than that, this recipe is a no brainer if you are a chicken wings fan!
Fun Part: I am giving away a copy of Stephanie’s book, Easy Gourmet, so all you guys can get in on these easy, delicious, gourmet recipes. If you want a copy for yourself, just leave a comment below. Maybe tell me what your favorite fall dinner is too. I am all about fall right now!

These turned out great made them in the airfryer then heated up the remaining sauce in a pan & added the wings to the pan to coat. Good spice to them without being too hot
Happy Monday!! 💘 Thanks so much for making this recipe, I love to hear that it turned out well for you! xx
Fabulous! Perfectly balanced flavors, and the wings, cooked on the stovetop (fortunately my husband did cleanup!) in 12 minutes, turning 4x.
Happy Wednesday!! Thanks a bunch for making this recipe and sharing your comment, I love to hear that it turned out well for you! xx
What kind of wings do you use? Also how would grilling them on a wood pellet smoker grill work?
So sorry, what do you mean what kind of wings do I use? Sure, I bet the smoker grill would be delicious! Please let me know how I can answer your first question! xx
Looks amazing!! Can’t wait to try this- can you sun a different hot sauce for sriracha?
Sure, any of your favorite hot sauces will work! I hope you love this recipe:) Happy Friday! xT
I’m not a meat eater but made these for my husband and his best friend for their Wimbledon-watching weekend. Made them inside because of weather. They looked and smelled so good. That wonderful gooey sauce over the crisp wing made them a hit!
Wonderful!! I love to hear that this recipe was enjoyed, thanks for making it and sharing your feedback! Hope you’re off to a great weekend:)
Heck ya! Ya know I’m trying this recipe out! Hit wing heaven
I hope you love the recipe Lisa! xTieghan
I made these for lunch today. I am so happy with the outcome. They were just perfect. I will definitely be making them again but add more hot sauce for little extra kick ?
Thank you so much Niloo! xTieghan
