One way to make everyone in my family happy at dinner time is to grill or broil a hunk of meat seasoned with salt and pepper. Steak, pork chops, any part of a chicken, you name it… if it’s crispy and salted, they will love it.
On loosey-goosey dinner nights when we don’t have the time or desire to set the table and all that jazz, I like to broil party wings.
I can usually fit an entire frozen package on one broiler pan. Simply salt and pepper the wings, broil from frozen for about 20 minutes; flip them over, salt and pepper again, and broil for another 15-20 minutes or until done.
If I serve Thai Peanut sauce with these wings, the kids will dip all sorts of raw vegetables into it: carrots, celery, snap peas, even chunks of lettuce leaves. It’s a health food miracle (wrapped in a peanut butter and brown sugar disguise).
Here’s the recipe (source unknown):
Thai Peanut Sauce
1/3 c soy sauce
1/3 c packed brown sugar
1/4 c lime juice
3 cloves garlic
Add peanut butter until desired taste/consistency, at least 1/3 cup.
