Peppery Chicken Wings

Peppery Chicken Wings

For as long as I can remember I've always been into books. My childhood allowance usually went towards books from the Scholastic book sale at school or food (go figure!).  One of the best purchases I made from one of those Scholastic catalogs was a simple cookbook for kids. It was the first cookbook that made me excited about cooking. I'd wake up on the weekend, turn on the toons and make a batch of french toast that  my brothers would bribe me for. I worked my way through that little cookbook with recipes for eggs, pasta, and English muffin pizzas but the one thing that impressed me and my whole family most was the roasted chicken thighs.

Ingredients

  • 5 pounds chicken wings, wingtips removed (I used a combo of drumsticks & wings)
  • kosher salt & fresh ground pepper
  • 2 teaspoons ground allspice
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground cloves
  • 1 teaspoon cayenne pepper
  • 1 tablespoon sweet paprika
  • 4 medium cloves garlic, smashed to a paste with a little salt
  • 3 tablespoons olive oil
