Today's Recipe: Jerk Chicken Wings

Posted by

Question: why is it that, as the weather gets warmer, we crave spicier food? Answer: Because we love it so much (we're sure there's some hard science at work as well, but we'll chalk it up to our own "wing theory")! The chicken wings in this recipe marinate in an intensely hot jerk rub before getting tossed in the oven to roast. They really couldn't be simpler to make (all of the ingredients in the marinade come together in a food processor) -- which means they're a perfect addition to your party menu.
