The Playoffs are upon us. My Saints will be playing this week. This week, here are a couple of recipes for gameday.

3 pounds Chicken Wings

1 tablespoon Olive Oil

1/4 cup Dark Rum

1 cup Cola

3 tablespoons Hot Sauce

2 tablespoons Honey

1 tablespoon Butter

Salt and Pepper to taste

Preheat oven to 450℉.

Line a standard sheet pan with foil. Toss wings in oil. Add chicken to pan. Sprinkle with salt and pepper. Bake for 30 minutes; carefully remove from oven and pour off liquid. Return to oven for an additional 15-30 minutes, or until chicken is brown and crispy.

While chicken is roasting, in a small saucepan, combine cola, rum, hot sauce, honey and butter. Bring to a rapid boil over high heat. Reduce heat to medium-low and simmer for about 0 minutes or until it reduces to a thickened glaze.

Remove chicken from the oven and brush generously with glaze; return to oven for about 5 minutes. Serve with remaining glaze for additional dipping.


Good Cooking, Good Eating and Good Living!!!


I lived in New Orleans, since birth, until Hurricane Katrina. I now live in Arkansas with my wife and our spoiled-rotten dog. I have been cooking since I was 8. My first cookbook, You can't keep New Orleans out of the cook, is now available at publishamerica.net and most online bookstores. It is also available on Kindle and Nook.
