Red Curry Chicken and Pineapple with Rice

Thailand is definitely a destination on my bucket list. Curries are a little spicy and have such a wonderful flavor. Pair it with coconut milk and pineapple for a cooling effect.

Buffalo Wings

It took me a little while to perfect these, but well worth it. I added cream cheese so it will stick to the wings and whipping cream to make the sauce a little cooler. There is no need for dressing on the side.

Buffalo Wings
Here are the Ingredients:
  • 1 1/2 pounds chicken wings, cut and separated
  • 1 tablespoon lemon pepper
  • 1/2 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon pepper

    Preheat oven at 450
Heat oil on medium high in a large non stick skillet. Place in wings and sprinkle top with all of the salt and pepper. Fry for 5 minutes and then turn and fry for another 5 minutes. Place wings on non stick foil on a baking sheet. Sprinkle with lemon pepper on both sides. Bake for 20 minutes. When done coat and toss with wing sauce. Let stand for 5 minutes and serve.
Here are the Ingredients:
  • 1/4 cup buffalo wing sauce

Heat sauce on medium. Add cream cheese until incorporated, but still a little lumpy. Add whipping cream and heat for another 30 seconds.
Serve with baked potato (see recipe) and  or celery sticks. If you like an extra crunch on your wings sprinkle with homemade bacon bits. Delish!!
