Today we’re being joined by Gallo Family Vineyards to bring you a Game Day dish for all of your upcoming get-togethers for the Big Game…you know the one!
To begin, preheat your oven to 450 degrees. Spread your wings out on a baking rack and baking sheet.
Pat the wings dry with paper towels.
Lightly spritz the tops of the wings with a little extra virgin olive oil.
And sprinkle with a good bit of salt & pepper. Bake for about 35-40 minutes.
While the wings are baking, you’ll prepare your glaze. In a small saucepan, combine 1/3 cup honey
a third of a cup of whole grain Dijon mustard
and two tablespoons of butter.
Melt this all together over low heat. When it just begins to bubble, turn off the heat.
When the chicken has finished baking, it will be lightly golden on top, with crisp skins.
Place the wings into a heat-safe mixing bowl.
Pour in the glaze, and stir the wings to coat them.
Place the wings back on the baking sheet.
Bake for 10-15 more minutes or until the wings are beautifully golden.
I paired my yummy wings with Gallo’s Sweet White Blend. Here’s how I made came to that choice: I headed over to the Food Pairing feature on Gallo’s website. There, you can choose between red meat, white meat and other categories. I chose white meat, since these are chicken. Then there is a second tier of options such as garlic, herb crusted, spicy and others. I selected “BBQ” because the coating on these wings, while not a traditional red BBQ sauce, does have a flavor that is similar. Once you select your second tier, you are given three wine selections, and how they best match. I was given Moscato, White Merlot and Sweet White Blend as suggestions. Since I hadn’t yet tried their Sweet White Blend I decided to bring that one home, and was very pleased that I did! It has a light and not too sweet flavor, and didn’t overpower the flavor of the wings. Perfect!
