Smoked Wings with Cilantro Dip

February 03, 2011

It’s been a fun week. Everyday something new comes out about the book (Chicken and Egg) and I hear from people who’ve bought it, such as this lovely note I received from reader Lisa H:

“I purchased your book “Chicken and Egg” at Crate and Barrel. Every aspect shines-writing photographs and recipes. I read it cover-to-cover. As a fellow Suburban Homesteader, and flock owner of 12 hens, I was drawn to your personal story of poultry ownership, and we are always looking for new egg recipes. Thank you for sharing your story and recipes.”

The chicks appear to be totally unfazed by their emerging publicity. Their attitude seems to be that fame is probably fleeting, and what’s really important in life is that the food bowl is full and treats come often. But, if there are fans out there with time of their hands, I’m sure the girls would each love a pair of hand-knit leg warmers, as our cold weather continues!

I’m excited to share one of my favorite recipes from the book, I hope you like it! It’s a great recipe for Super Bowl week because it’s perfect to serve during the game. The recipe calls for the wings to be grilled, but if you’re one of the many readers who have suffered through the storm of the century this week, I’ve also adapted it so that you can cook the chicken in the oven. I think you’ll like it either way. Give it a try and let me know what you think.
