Tom Douglas is THE chef out here. He owns a ton of restaurantsand the ones I have tried have been fantastic. Can't wait to check more off my list! When I had these wings at his restaurant, Palace Kitchen, I immediately came home to see if they were in his cookbook that I have.
And we're in luck!
I'm a big fan of the grilling technique in this wing recipe, it was pretty hands off and they cook fairly quick. I'm definitely going to be trying to make the Asian Style Baked Wings on the grill next. I think it would be an easy method to use when entertaining and they turned out really juicy.
A few things were off in the execution of the wings...they may have been marinated after a night out at the bar and some reading comprehension issues may have been involved. Regardless, they were still declious and I'll definitely be making these again. I love wings. And the Cilantro Sour Cream...excellent dipping sauce!
Below is the recipe sourced from Tom Douglas' Seattle Kitchen Cookbook, with a few minor changes. Lot's of good recipes in there, along with good tips on where to go shopping for your food...he's all about the local ingredients!
For the Wings
18 chicken wings
2 cups of soy sauce
1 cup water
1/2 cup tabasco
1/2 cup sriracha
5 cloves garlic, minced
2 tablespoons parsley, chopped
1-1/2 teaspoons dried thyme
1-1/2 teaspoons dried sage
2 teaspoons fresh rosemary, chopped
For the Cilantro Sour Cream
1/2 cup sour cream
1 tablespoon heavy cream
3 teaspoons chopped cilantro
1/2 teaspoon ground black pepper
Whisk together soy sauce, water, Tabasco, Sriracha, garlic and herbs in a large bowl. Reserve a quarter cup of this marinade for cooking.
Marinate wings in the rest of the marinade, making sure all of the chicken is coated well. I like to marinate wings in a large Ziploc bag and lay it flat in the fridge (make sure it's sealed well). Refrigerate and marinate overnight, shaking/mixing around periodically to make sure everything is well marinated.
Prior to grilling, make the Cilantro Sour Cream by mixing sour cream, heavy cream, cilantro and pepper together in a small bowl. Mix well and refrigerate until ready to serve.
Preheat grill. Cook wings over medium low heat, turning often, and cooking for about 15 minutes. While grilling, baste wings with reserved marinade.
Serve with Cilantro Sour Cream.
