Spicy Peanut Butter & Honey Chicken Wings – a delicious blend of savory, sweet, and a touch of spice for a snack with a kick!
I feel like I haven’t seen my husband in days….and it’s not because he’s been extra busy at work or because I’ve been busy running the kids to and from activities or because one of us has been sick in bed. No, it’s because of something much more important. March Madness!! Yes, for the past few days, he’s been at a friend’s house watching college basketball every chance he can get! Who doesn’t love a little March Madness, right? Even though I’m not following the games quite as closely as he is, I still wanted to get in the spirit of the season (and hopefully lure my husband home) with these delicious Spicy Peanut Butter & Honey Chicken Wings and a little help from Pick ‘n Save and #CollectiveBias.
If I had to guess, I’d say there’s more to Jorden’s love of March Madness than the simple fact that it’s fun to watch. I really think that for him and his friends, it’s a time to relive the “glory days” of college….when nothing mattered more than brackets and standings and upsets….and you really could devote all your free time to keeping up with it! Now, everyone has jobs and houses and kids to keep up with…..so reliving the college experience isn’t something that happens too often. But when it does, I’m totally up for Jorden having his fun!
And I’ll even provide snacks! First up? These delicious Spicy Peanut Butter & Honey Wings, made with items found in the #MyPicknSave Wing Madness circular ad. Pick ‘n Save has always been my go-to grocery store for fresh food year round, and I love the fact that they get into things like March Madness just as much as their customers. They even have a Wing Madness sampling happening at select Pick ‘n Save locations…..how fun!
The circular ad has all kinds of good options, including fresh, frozen, boneless,or marinated wings….but I opted for plain old chicken wings and jazzed them up from there. I knew I wanted to use Frank’s Red Hot Sauce, also in the ad….and then peanut butter and honey came to mind. Since I am always a fan of savory-sweet, pb&h is a flavor combination I absolutely LOVE! So why not love it on some wings?!? I added the Frank’s, a little garlic, some red pepper flakes, and a touch of soy sauce…..and the result was glorious! Almost as glorious as reliving your college days.
Of course, the true test was having Jorden try them. After all, college basketball (and wings) are really his things! Let’s just way I found him snacking on a few for breakfast the next morning. So, if I had to guess, I’d say they were a hit! He loved the combination of salty peanut butter and sweet honey, and he especially loved the kick of red pepper flakes and Frank’s! We’ll definitely be making these again soon…..minus the college basketball and late nights spent at friends’ houses. I mean – I’m all about having some fun….just as long as it doesn’t happen too often!!
