Turmeric Thyme and Honey Baked Chicken Wings
I have been craving chicken wings like crazy lately! Ordering chicken wings out is just not an option, I don’t want to eat anything that has been breaded and then deep fried in Evil Vegetable Oils so my craving went on for awhile. I finally picked up some free range chicken wings (notice how much smaller they are than the chicken wings on crack you get at a restaurant) and I couldn’t wait to get started.
Except when I did… I didn’t have any cumin. I was planning on making a sweet and spicy type wing with some fun spices but when the star of my show was missing I had to audible so I diverted my focus to turmeric. Turmeric is a herb plant in the ginger family that gets dried and ground into a bright orangey-yellow powder. It is most commonly used in curries and gives mustard is characteristic color. Traditional Chinese and Indian medicines utilize turmeric as an herbal medicine for anything from cancer to menstrual irregularities to arthritis to digestive disorders and seriously just about everything in between. It has also been widely studied for it’s anti-inflammatory properties and research has shown it’s benefit for your liver, kidneys, heart, and gut AND it works as an antioxidant. #wingsforthewin
