blue apron: miso glazed chicken wings;

This was the third and final recipe from blue apron!  And definitely a keeper.  I want to make this for my mom–a little less on the spice for her though!  She loooooves chicken wings, and I’ve always been hesitant to try making them.  Somehow I always assume they’re hard to make, but this recipe was surprisingly easy!  I have one other recipe from a friend who made some really great wings for a party, and I loved them.  It was a great recipe, but it was a fried chicken wings recipe, so it involved a lot of spices and flour and oil.  And my own faux pas–using chicken wings that were the size of my hand.  But let’s put that aside so I can tell you about these wings!

The glaze is super-packed with flavor and simple!  It does require a few unique ingredients that I don’t usually have in my pantry, so I did a little taste test and found what I think are some good substitutes!  I did leave the original ingredients there if you’re adventurous and can navigate the Asian grocery store.  I prefer the substitutes simply because I don’t love buying ingredients for a single recipe when I have no idea how else to use them.  I might invest in the soy glaze if I can find it though, I really enjoyed the flavor of it.

Definitely take note of the spice in this recipe and adjust accordingly.  If you want to dial the spice up even more, top with some sriracha!  I actually did enjoy the extra touch of kick on these, but T ate his straight up and really enjoyed them too.  The skin was crispy, and the extra 8 minutes in the oven after the glaze was applied really got that perfect amount of char on them.  Yummm.   The Blue Apron Recipe said 3 servings, but I definitely knocked it down to two because they were so tasty!

Try them out and let me know what you think!  You’ll see the side dish that was made with the blue apron recipe, but you can write it off.  I didn’t include it here since it was pretty underwhelming.  Not much flavor and not a great ratio of rice to vegetables.  And pretty bland.  I added some powdered ginger and onion powder, and it got a little better, but definitely not make again.
