One of my food proverbs of wisdom is a flavor must not be overwhelmed by fire. Spicy food must have flavor and not be all heat. The shishito peppers hit that note. The recipe I put together had the perfect combination of sweet and salty with the faintest hint of heat. I also tested out some beef bacon. While the beef bacon was not as good as the original flavor it was as close a substitute as I have seen. I feel comfortable recommending the beef bacon as a prime bacon stand-in for it’s more popular relative.
Putting this together was pretty easy. And ready in a jiff. Clean the peppers and slice on the side through the length of the peppers but not in half.
That’s all it took and a delicious bite is on its way to your palate. I added some roasted pine nuts and little cutie orange segments to the plate and rested the shishito peppers in more glaze. It was everything you need it to be and more.
The recipe is simple and requires minimal ingredients. All you need is…………….
Chicken Party Wings, Salt, Pepper, Bacon, Marmalade and Orange Juice
Marinate the wings in the orange juice and salt for a couple hours.
Season with pepper and wrap wing with bacon, line a sheet pan with foil or parchment.
Heat orange juice and manmade until it is the consistency of a glaze. Brush over wings
Cook the wings for 15 minutes or so and apply more glaze. Continue the process until the tops start to get golden and delicious. Turn the wings over and brush with more glaze. Raise oven temp to 400 and cook another 5 to 10 minutes. Cook until the wings hit 165 with a thermometer. Serve and enjoy.
