Around the World in 15 Chicken Wings Recipes

Around the World in 15 Chicken Wings Recipes

Chicken wings. Once just the annoying little brother of the chicken breast. The chicken wing is now an institution in and of itself. Whole restaurants are now devoted to the making of chicken wings. They are staple food items at Super Bowl and New Year’s Eve parties everywhere. While the theory is that the Buffalo wing started at a bar in Buffalo, New York, chicken wings are now an international snack. From Vietnam to South Africa, chicken wings are delicacy all over the world.

        These Korean wings use a sauce of gojujang (Korean chili paste), soy sauce, garlic, ginger and sesame oil, as well as rice vinegar and sweet honey. They cook twice—once to cook, the second to crisp them up.

        4. Peruvian

          Peruvian chicken wings are best grilled over charcoal to bring out the lime flavor. Chili flakes, garlic, cumin and paprika enhance these wings to “finger licking good” status.

          5. Italian

                A simple recipe of lemon juice, black pepper and herbs like rosemary and thyme make these wings delightful. Bake them at 350 degrees F for an hour and then finish them off on the grill if you want. Crumble feta cheese over them and throw them under the broiler for a minute or dip them in sour cream and herbs.

                8. America

                  Bourbon, butter, spices—these couldn’t be more American if they had apple pie coming out of them! These are beyond your standard “buffalo” wing. I don’t know if Bev of Bevcooks.com is from Buffalo, but who cares?

                  9. Thai

                    Coconut milk, chili sauce, peanut butter, ginger, brown sugar and more. Yeah. Yum. And they stay in one pan. Eat them out of the pan and you only have one dish to clean.

                    10. Modern Asian

                      David Chang of Momofuku in San Francisco is one of America’s top chefs. But his cooking can’t be described as strictly Chinese. These wings are “modern Asian.” The Octo vinaigrette that goes on them makes them amazing. You can bake or fry the wings, although Chang recommends baking.

                      11. Spain

                        Smoked paprika and garlic. Call them tapas if you will, or just call them pub grub. Either way, these are awesome, Spanish-inspired wings.

                        12. Irish

                          A pint of Guinness, a little pepper and some shallot. What else could you need, except maybe a pint for the cook? And a wok.

                          13. Chinese BBQ

                            Roast the wings and mix the sauce. How easy is that? Then mix the Hoisin, honey, butter, ginger and sesame oil. Toss the wings for an amazing dish.

                            14. Sake Wings

                                How to Tap Into the Power of Positivity

                                How to Tap Into the Power of Positivity

                                As it appears, the human mind is not capable of not thinking, at least on the subconscious level. Our mind is always occupied by thoughts, whether we want to or not, and they influence our every action.

                                When we were still children, our thoughts seemed to be purely positive. Have you ever been around a 4-year old who doesn’t like a painting he or she drew? I haven’t. Instead, I see glee, exciting and pride in children’s eyes. But as the years go by, we clutter our mind with doubts, fears and self-deprecating thoughts.

                                Just imagine then, how much we limit ourselves in every aspect of our lives if we give negative thoughts too much power!

                                We’ll never go after that job we’ve always wanted because our nay-saying thoughts make us doubt our abilities.

                                We’ll never ask that person we like out on a date because we always think we’re not good enough.

                                Advertising

                                We’ll never risk quitting our job in order to pursue the life and the work of our dreams because we can’t get over our mental barrier that insists we’re too weak, too unimportant and too dumb.

                                We’ll never lose those pounds that risk our health because we believe we’re not capable of pushing our limits.

                                And we’ll never be able to fully see our inner potential because we simply don’t dare to question the voices in our head…

                                But enough is enough! It’s time to stop these limiting beliefs and come to a place of sanity, love and excitement about life, work and ourselves.

                                So, how can we tap into the power of positivity?

                                “Happiness cannot come from without, it comes from within.” – Helen Keller

                                It’s not as hard as it may seem; you just have to practice, practice, practice. Here are 4 simple yet powerful ideas on how you can get started.

                                1. Learn to substitute every negative thought with a positive one.

                                Every time a negative thought crawls into your mind, replace it with a positive thought. It’s just like someone writes a phrase you don’t like on a blackboard and then you get up, erase it and write something much more to your liking.

                                Just take a look at these 10 Positive Affirmations for Success that will Change your Life.

                                2. See the positive side of every situation, even when you are surrounded by pure negativity.

                                This one is a bit harder to put into practice, which does not mean it’s impossible.

                                Advertising

                                You can find positivity in everything by mentally holding on to something positive, whether this be family, friends, your faith, nature, someone’s sparkling eyes or whatever other glimmer of beauty.

                                If you seek it, you will find it.

                                3. At least once a day, take a moment and think of 5 things you are grateful for.

                                This will lighten your mood and give you some perspective of what really is important in life and how many blessings surround you already.

                                Here’re 60 Things To Be Thankful For In Life that can inspire you.

                                4. Change the mental images you allow to enter your mind.

                                How you see yourself and your surroundings make a huge difference to your thinking.

                                Advertising

                                Instead of dwelling on dark, negative thoughts, consciously build and focus on positive, light and colorful images, thoughts and situations in your mind a few times a day.

                                Learn from this article how to change your mental images: How to Think Positive and Eliminate Negative Thoughts

                                If you are persistent and keep on working on yourself, your mind will automatically reject its negative thoughts and welcome the positive ones.

                                And remember:

                                You are (or will become) what you think you are.

                                This is reasonable enough to be proactive about whatever is going on in your head.
