Grilled chicken wings

Have you ever made chicken wings with hard liquor? Well, now’s your chance! Using just a splash of Jack Daniels, you can mix up a fantastic marinade for your chicken wings. With this sauce, they’re sure to be deliciously tangy and spicy, with a smoky flavor that is sure to please.

What you’ll need to whip this up

  • Chopped cilantro or scallions to serve
  • 2 ⅓ pounds separated chicken wings
  • ¾ cups apricot preserves
  • 2 tablespoons low-sodium soy sauce
  • 2 tablespoons fresh lime juice
  • ½ tablespoon sriracha
  • 3 tablespoons Jack Daniels

Directions:

Combine the Jack Daniels, lime juice, soy sauce, sriracha, and apricot preserves in a large bowl. Whisk it all until everything is mixed up nice and smooth. Transfer about ¼ cup to a smaller bowl and set it to the side.

Next, put the chicken wings in the large bowl. Toss and mix until the wings are covered in the marinade. Cover with plastic wrap and stick in the refrigerator for a minimum of two hours.

Time to get your grill ready!

Heat it up but keep the fire low. Put the wings on with the bone side down — cover and grill for 10 minutes. Turn the wings over and continue to grill for another 15 minutes until they’re cooked through. Brush the reserved sauce on and serve with the cilantro or scallions sprinkled on top.

Spinach artichoke tartine

  • 14.5-ounce can of artichokes, chopped and rinsed
  • 2 cups baby spinach

Toast your bread slices. Spread your artichoke mix on top. Sprinkle with the leftover parmesan cheese and broil for two to three minutes. You’re good to go!
