Curry Chicken Wings

by White on Rice Couple on December 18, 2011

Thanksgiving. Post-Thanksgiving stupor. Holiday parties. Travel. Shopping. Gift-giving cooking. Post office purgatory. Christmas. New Years. Visiting family and friends. Bowl game parties. NFL game gatherings. With all of this thrown on top of everyday life, as the cooks in our clans it isn’t surprising most of us feel like we just got Gronked.

Yet most of us wouldn’t trade it for the world. For some, cooking in the kitchen is a chore, yet for most of us, it is one of the best places in the world. A place where we pour our hearts and souls into the food to bring a smile to those we love.

Diane and I have been hosting gatherings for as long as we’ve been together (nearly 16 years). Starting as two crazy kids who loved to cook combined with a couple roommates who loved to eat. We can still remember many of our first gatherings. Cooking for 8 would take us a week of prep and cooking.

Today we’ve become much more proficient. A gathering of 40 can be done in a day or two. We’ll still start about a week ahead planning the menu, but the actual cooking (sans minor mis en place prep) has been streamlined for efficiency.

A big part of the planning lies in dish selection. What is going to take time to cook when everyone is already here? What has a complicated prep? What can be done ahead? What is time and heat/cold sensitive in serving?

A complicated or time-killing dish isn’t necessarily better tasting than a quick dish. If there is already one dish you must have which takes a lot of prep time, eliminate others which will compete for that time. There needs to be several quick, easy, and delicious dishes at your disposal.

Chicken wings fill that need for us time and again. They can be quickly prep. Mass baked on sheet pans, evenly gently kept warm or re-heated if you need to bake them ahead of time, then tossed in their final sauce when ready to serve. And few things go better with beer and football than chicken wings.

This is our latest favorite, basically taking the sauce we used for the curried smashed potatoes and tossing it with the wings. Which is also another party short-cut. One sauce, two distinct dishes. You can also easily sub in your favorite sauce instead of the curry if you have a more conservative group you are feeding. Here’s our other chicken wing recipes for ideas or you can always serve them with a side of or tossed in a home-made Sriracha style sauce:

I don’t eat chicken. But I can say that the wings look awesome and the part about having several quick, easy, and delicious dishes at your disposal…that’s so important! No one wants to stand in their kitchen at their own party; it’s nice to actually party a little and mingle with your guests at your party :)

Gorgeous!! Beautiful photos. I just made Coq au Vin and worked so hard to photograph it well. It was in a cast iron skillet just like here but your photos are so good. Meats/chicken are so difficult to photograph so I am especially drooling over these… (If you have a spare sec. can you tell me which aperture you used? Is this 2.8, 3.5…?) Happy holidays to one of my favorite blogs!

OMG these sound fantastic. I haven’t had chicken wings in quite sometime just because of all the fat but I love these ingredients and I’m sure they would be awesome on chicken breasts as well. However, they will make a perfect party appetizer for the holidays and of course we all indulge then.

Thanks for sharing.

Oh my goodness, what a wonderful idea! I think I would skip the game and just sit next to the plate of wings. Thanks for the inspiration ~ Joanne

I love curyy chicken. We usually make it with the yellow curry. We cook down a bunch of fresh vegetables and then season it with tons of curry, served over rice. It is one of my favorites.

Hi Todd (and Diane),

During playoffs a week and a half ago, we ended up at the 99 Ranch Market…. chicken wings were on sale. I was in the mood for “something Vietnamese,” and Barry wanted “something for the game.” In the end, this was our compromise. It was simple and delicious and paired PERFECTLY with a couple bottles of beer. :-) Thank you!!
