Father’s Day Chicken Wings
Happy Saturday everyone! Gosh, I am seriously having the very best Saturday. I woke up early, but not too early. My husband went to play golf with some friends, which means I had the house allllll to myself. When that happens, I pretty much spend every minute in the kitchen. By 10am I had already tried out 3 different recipes and photographed one. I went on a walk with my dog – though very short lived because she got too hot! That’s an Alabama summer morning for you. On our walk I passed a garage sale, so I went back a few minutes later and got two chairs, a painting, and a tray table for $20!!! Then I took a bath, and now I’m writing this. I am quite literally living my best life right now.
In a little while some friends are coming over for my BFF’s birthday dinner! I get the best of both worlds today – tons of alone time AND friend time!
What does your perfect Saturday look like? I love learning about what fills people up. It’s so interesting to me how different we all are. My day probably sounds like a nightmare to some of you!!!
My friend requested chicken wings for dinner and it reminded me that I hadn’t actually posted my chicken wing recipe on the blog for y’all! It’s on the gram, but it will be easier for y’all to reference here! I take credit only for the marinade for these wings. JTW is the grill master in this house and grilled them PERFECTLY so they were nice and juicy on the inside and crispy on the outside. This marinade would be great on anything really – fish, veggies, anything. These would be perfect for those of you needing a Father’s Day meal idea!!
1 cup olive oil
Juice from one lemon
1 tbsp Rosemary
1 tbsp chives
1/2 tbsp oregano
2 big pinches of salt
1 tsp pepper
2 tsp coconut sugar (exclude if doing Whole30)
Mix all ingredients together. Pour over chicken (I used a big ziplock bag to marinate) and toss every hour or so. The longer you let this sit the better, but I’d say at least about hour. Cook on a charcoal grill at about 425 degrees but on indirect heat for 30-45 minutes flipping every 10. Put over direct heat and cook on each side for one minute each to get those crispy bits!
