Bourbon Cola Chicken Wings


It’s officially, Superbowl Sunday in the states right now, so the perfect opportunity to share my newest addition to the slashie/recipe archive, Bourbon and Cola Chicken Wings. Not only, are they sticky and addictive but they’re totally moreish too. One bite and you’ll hooked like a crack addict (or say Charlie Sheen)—they really are that good.

So get that napkin ready and tuck it into the neck of your t-shirt, roll up those sleeves and get your paws ready. This is the kind of food you eat with your hands and lick your fingers afterwards. Trust me, you won’t stop until you’ve demolished an entire platter of them. Just for kicks, why not serve ’em up with some slaw (extra mayonnaise please) and some onion rings too. To my ‘merican friends, happy Superbowl Sunday! MC
