Citrus Honey Balsamic Herb Stuffed Wings

September 22, 2010

Author Notes: Oh my, these wings are like no other wing around. I got to thinking about how I often stuff herbs under the skin of chicken breasts and so why not a wing! The flavors really burst on many levels!JennT1981

  2. In a food processor combine garlic and basil and pulse until resembles a paste.
  3. Begin stuffing the mixture evenly under the skin of each wing and place on a greased baking sheet.

  5. In the meantime combine olive oil, orange juice, honey, balsamic vinegar and salt in a medium sauce pan and bring to a boil.
  6. Reduce heat to low and let simmer for flavors to meld and sauce reduces slightly.
