Chipotle Cotija Chicken Wings
I haven’t shared as many new recipes with you folks because we have been so busy. It makes me feel out of my element to be away from the kitchen so long. In order to fix that, I have several new recipes, like these Chipotle Cotija Chicken Wings, to share. Please just be patient with me as I find balance in this new life.
Back to these wings, this was originally a slow cooker recipe, but I couldn’t get the chipotle part quite right. Baking the wings first, and then pan frying them in a chipotle sauce was the perfect solution. It just clings to the meat, creating an excellent atmosphere for the cotija cheese to hang out in. Cotija is pretty similar to parmesan cheese, which is a great substitute in this recipe.
The great thing about this Chipotle Cotija Chicken Wings is you can prepare the wings in different ways, and get similar results. If you like a nice grilled wing, with char marks and everything, you could do that instead. Or even make them in the slow cooker, and finish them off on the grill or stovetop. That would be my recommendation if you are cooking for a large crowd. The wings are cooked, then you can just prepare them to order after that.
