I’ve always had an exquisite appetite for food, and an enthusiasm to learn as much as I can about culinary as I do in fashion. In comes to mind that both are Art related somehow, are they not? In fashion, accessories are la crème de la crème in any outfit – they describe and vision a personality. In culinary, the combination of spices and herbs is what a chef or region is known by – that’s what divides a restaurant from one another. But I don’t say all this to tell you that I’m another expert chef who knows it all, but I sure am a follower who enjoys cooking a good meal like these honey-glazed chipotle, chicken wings coated for a delightful mixture of sweetness and spiciness.

I always love to take some time to look around some cooking sites and see what will inspire me for my next meal. As I plan to make Styled and Framed a place where I can share my personal likes on cooking, travel, soon to be personal outfit posts, and of course more Fashion, I thought it would have been great to start off this day by sharing a lighthearted recipe. Now, I’m no genius in cooking, but coming from a Mexican background, I always like to change one or two ingredients around to complete my dishes; my mom never follows an exact recipe except in baking. There’s really no limit in cooking, only creativity.

You can read the recipe below taken from an inspired Cooking channel recipe I slightly modified. Hope you enjoy!

INGREDIENTS (my addition in italic):
  • Vegetable oil, for greasing pans
  • Preparation: 3 pounds chicken wings, split; 1 teaspoon kosher salt; ¼ teaspoon ground black pepper
  • Coating: 3 tablespoons honey, 1 tablespoon soy sauce, ½ teaspoon curry and cumin powder; 2 original chipotle’s sliced

  • Preheat oven to 425 degrees F. Lightly oil 2 baking pans (one for baking and another for coating). Mix wings with salt and pepper and divide them evenly between the pans – leave room for easier maneuver when rotating them. Bake for 45 minutes.
  • Turn the wings and rotate the position of the pans halfway through (this helps everything cook evenly) at around 25 minutes, until they’re crisp and golden brown.
  • Meanwhile, mix the coating for the wings together in a large bowl. Toss the wings in the coating, and place them in the second pan. Return to oven for about 5-8 minutes, and bake until they look more caramelized. Take out of oven.

Tip: serve with a small salad or rice as I prefer.
