Chicken Wings With Chipotle-Corn Sauce & Herbs

Makes about 24 wings

    For the Chipotle-Corn Sauce:

    • Drizzle of olive oil
    • ¼ cup diced onion
    • ¼ cup diced celery
    • 3 garlic cloves, minced
    • 1 cup corn kernels (fresh or frozen)
    • 2 cups cream
    • 1 chipotle pepper packed in adobo sauce
    • ½ teaspoon oregano
    • Kosher salt to taste
    • Ground black pepper to taste

    Heat the olive oil in a sauce pan and gently sauté the onions, celery, and garlic until soft. Add corn, cream, chipotle, oregano, and thyme. Bring to a simmer and cook until reduced by half. Puree sauce with an immersion blender or in a food processor until smooth. Season with salt and pepper.

      For the chicken wings:

      • 2 pounds Smart Chicken wings
      • Olive oil
      • Kosher salt
      • Ground black pepper

      For garnish:

      • 2 tablespoons fresh thyme leaves
      • 1 scallion, sliced thin

      Preheat grill to high heat (between 400°F to 450°F). Toss the chicken wings with olive oil to lightly coat and then season with salt and pepper. Place chicken wings on the hot grill and cook about 4 to 5 minutes until browned and crispy, then turn over and cook for another 4 to 5 minutes, until the internal temperature of the chicken reaches 165°F. Toss the wings with the Chipotle-Corn Sauce, scallions, thyme, and parsley and serve.
