Garlic-Sizzled Chicken Wings

Garlic-Sizzled Chicken WIngs

My dear friends. I must apologize for the lack of posts on here lately. I'm officially on my winter vacation and it's grand, but I am currently dealing with a broken refrigerator in my apartment! I had so many cooking projects I wanted to get done during this time, but now it looks like they will have to wait until I get back from my mini vacation to Santa Barbara this weekend. I hope you're all enjoying the holiday season. It always takes me a while to get in to the spirit of things, but I find that viewing such holiday classics as Love Actually and A Christmas Story, always help to get me in the mood. It also helps to make such festive and delicious dishes like these chicken wings. If you're looking for something amazing to serve at your holiday party, try these. They are so garlicky (especially since I upped the amount of garlic), but if everyone else at the party is eating these as well, you won't need to worry about crazy garlic breath!

Anywho, I hope you all have a wonderful holiday and spend the time with the people you love. Happy Holidays!! xoxo

Garlic-Sizzled Chicken Wings

Garlic Sizzled Chicken Wings
(Slightly adapted from We Are Not Martha who adapted from Sea Salt With Food)

2 pounds chicken wings
Kosher salt
Freshly ground black pepper
2 1/2 teaspoons paprika
1/2 teaspoon Aleppo pepper
13 cloves garlic (3 whole, 10 chopped)
5 tablespoons olive oil
1 bay leaf
1/4 cup red wine

Rub the pieces of chicken with salt, pepper, paprika, and Aleppo pepper.

Smash three of the garlic cloves. Heat the oil in frying pan and add chicken and the three smashed garlic cloves and bay leaf. Fry until the chicken is golden.

Add the remaining chopped garlic and continue frying. Add the red wine and continue cooking until most of the liquid is absorbed and the chicken is tender, about 20 minutes.

Sprinkle with chopped parsley and serve warm.

I've just spent 10 days with very little garlic (father in law won't eat it) so these look absolutely amazing to me! Bring it on!
