The biggest football game of the year is set for Sunday. And it’s in Houston, Texas, although no Texas teams are playing.
Some will be cheering for the New England Patriots. Others for the Atlanta Falcons. I’m rooting for agriculture. From game day food to cotton for championship t-shirts, agriculture is the winning team. Especially poultry farmers.
The National Chicken Council estimates Americans will eat 1.33 billion wings on Sunday. That’s up 2 percent, or 30 million wings, from last year’s game.
And our wing recipe is pretty darn tasty. Serve it at your game day get-together or try this corn dip or these potato skins. And enjoy the commercials!
For Sweet Fire Chicken Wings, you will need…
3 pounds chicken wings (drums and wings)
¼ c. butter, melted
¼ c. brown sugar
1 tbsp. garlic powder
1 tbsp. red chili flakes
1 tsp. onion powder
1 tsp. salt
½ tsp. pepper
Start by preheating your oven to 425 degrees. Mix together the butter, garlic and onion powder as well as the salt and pepper in a bowl.
Put the chicken pieces in a large resealable bag and pour the butter mixture over them. Move them around to make sure everything is well coated.
In a second bowl, mix together the brown sugar and chili flakes.
Coat the chicken in dry mix before moving to a lined baking sheet. Bake for 30 minutes, flipping once during baking.
This recipe is a great addition to any game-day festivities. If you’re watching the big game happening in Houston this weekend or even if you aren’t, be sure to add this to your weekend menu. From all of us at Texas Table Top, enjoy!
