This is just one game-day recipe you can serve in the snack-stadium "Infladium" Sunny created for football parties, available at Party City.
- ½ habanero pepper, seeded and chopped
- 2 tablespoons soy sauce
- 2 tablespoons honey
- 2 tablespoons packed light-brown sugar
- 1 tablespoon granulated sugar
- 1 teaspoon fennel seeds
- 1 teaspoon cayenne pepper
- 1 teaspoon ground allspice
- 1 teaspoon dried thyme
- ½ teaspoon ground ginger
- 2 cloves garlic, chopped
- 2 scallions, chopped
- 2 tablespoons apple cider vinegar
- 2 tablespoons fresh lime juice
- 2 tablespoons fresh orange juice
- 3 pounds chicken wings
Combine the habanero, soy sauce, honey, both sugars, fennel seeds, cayenne, allspice, thyme, ginger, garlic and scallions in a blender. Add the vinegar, lime juice and orange juice and blend until smooth. Place the wings in a large resealable plastic bag and pour in the marinade. Seal and refrigerate 4 to 6 hours.
Preheat the oven to 350˚F. Line 2 baking sheets with parchment paper. Remove the wings from the bag, reserving the marinade, place on the prepared baking sheets and roast for 20 minutes.
Meanwhile, in a small saucepan, bring the marinade to a boil over medium heat and cook until reduced by one-third for a glaze, about 10 minutes.
Remove the wings from the oven and brush with the glaze. Increase the oven temperature to 400˚F and roast until the wings are cooked through, about 20 minutes more.
