Man Food: Chicken Mole Wings For the Super BowlBy
This past weekend Jeff set out to make some Man Food for the Super Bowl.
Jeff loves wings. He loves mole sauce. He decided to combine the two. So this weekend he commandeered the kitchen and started cooking. This tasty little bit was the result. While not spicy, it’s become my new favorite wing recipe. Very flavorful. The kids loved it. If you want it spicy, add cayenne or chili powder to the sauce to taste.
Stay tuned for more Super Bowl recipes this week.
Makes approximately 36 mild wings/drummettes
1 ½ – 2 cups chopped onion
3 tablespoons coconut oil
½ teaspoon coriander seeds
½ teaspoon anise seed
3 tablespoons chili powder (more for added heat)
1 teaspoon ground cumin
3 teaspoons rapadura
¾ teaspoon cinnamon
2 ½ tablespoons unsweetened cocoa powder
2 tablespoons smooth peanut butter
2¼–3 cups chicken broth
3 ounces tomato paste
2 tablespoons dried cranberries, raisins or dates
¾ teaspoon garlic powder and ½ teaspoon of water made into a paste with ¾ teaspoon salt
3 – 4 pounds chicken wings and drummettes
Preheat the oven to 375 degrees.
In a heavy skillet, sauté the onion in the coconut oil over moderately high heat, stirring occasionally until it is golden brown. In a mortar, use a pestle to crush the coriander seeds and anise seed, stirring them into the onion mixture with the chili powder, cumin, rapadura, and cinnamon, and cook the mixture over moderate heat, continuously stirring for 1 minute. Stir in the cocoa powder, peanut butter, 2¼ cups of chicken broth, tomato paste, cranberries, garlic paste, and salt to taste. Simmer the sauce, uncovered, stirring almost constantly, for 20 minutes or to desired consistency. Once the sauce is cooked, remove from the heat.
While the sauce is cooking, prep the wings by clipping the tips and give them a quick rinse. Pat the wings dry; season them with salt and pepper. Place the wings on a greased cookie sheet or on a silpat on a lipped cookie sheet and place in the preheated oven for 20 minutes. Drain the pan.
In a blender or food processor, purée the sauce, adding additional broth to thin it to the desired consistency, if needed. We liked ours thick. Pour three quarters of the sauce into a large bowl, add the wings and toss for a full coating. Place a cooling rack or broiler rack on top of your sheet pan and place your coated wings on top. Cook for the 30 minutes or until done. Serve while hot.
