I can’t wait to host holiday parties this year in my new kitchen! We renovated the kitchen in June (what a crazy process!) and I’m loving cooking in it. I can’t wait to share it with my family and friends. I also bought all new appliances and have been giving them a workout with all the recipes I’ve been whipping up this year. I found the perfect appetizer recipe from my friends at the Chicken Farmers of Canada: Asian Chicken Wings. Soooo tasty!

Forget the frozen boxed wings – try making them yourself. I promise, it’s not that hard. Buy the chicken wings that are already split so you can save yourself an extra step. Then it’s just a matter of creating a delicious marinade and popping them in the oven to bake.

These Asian Chicken Wings have so much flavour. They are sticky and sweet so have some napkins near by. I love that the peppers add a pop of festive red and green colour to the dish. They bake right with the wings.

My family devoured these wings so I know we have a winner here. They are easy to make so I’ll definitely be making them again over the holidays.

This post also closes out my year as a Chicken Farmers of Canada Ambassador. I’d like to thank the Chicken Farmers of Canada for including me as one of their ambassadors. I love working with them sharing both the delicious chicken recipes and information about chicken farming in Canada. I’ve worked with them for several years now and it’s truly been an honour. I always remember how hard our chicken farmers work and what they stand for every time I’m shopping for chicken during my grocery trips. Canadian chicken is the best and I’m glad to be part of it – even in a small way with my blog!

I hope you enjoyed all the chicken recipes I’ve shared with you this year!
