The Wednesday Foodie Edition!
Guess what's on the menu this week!
My Apple Ginger Chayote Squash Chicken Wings ;)
But before we get to this recipe and these ingredients let me give you today's inspirational message! Im calling this one, "Potential!"
Last week I talked to you briefly about my cooking insecurities. Remember how I told you that I didn't believe in myself?
Omg.. Complacency can damage our abilities to see our own potential. One day God told me to make "Apple Ginger Chayote Squash Chicken Wings" and I was totally against it!
So here's the story. I was in the grocery store looking for apples and I saw this thing that looked like a green apple. I thought to myself.. What the heck is Chayote Squash? Lol.. Because I never had it before. Anyway.. I googled it. Lol, come on.. you know you would've done it too! :)
First website I went to said it paired well with apples. I thought to my self hmmm? I'm going to make a homemade apple pie out of this. So I did.. (Recipes coming!) ;) Anyhow.. I made this amazing pie. Then I heard God say, make a sauce out of everything you used in the pie, add a few little secrets, and put it on some chicken wings.
I was like WTH! Come on God! This sounds really crazy to me. So.. I decided to mentioned it to someone, and then my insecurities stepped in when this acquaintances laughed at the idea.
How many of you know that you must be careful about who you tell your dreams too?
Everyone can't see your potential.. especially if they can't see their own.
Anyway.. I prayed on it and God revealed something to me. He let me see that I didn't believe in myself.
During prayer I asked God lead me. Next, I got everything together and created the sauce. Then I added it to the wings! Omg! They turned out amazing!
Now here's the blessing! A week later the recipe landed me a radio show interview. Who would have known right? Lol! That interview went viral on all over social media. It also caused my podcast to elevate and be played on different radio stations. I also got to be a part of Black Chefs Network too!
I learned a valuable lesson that year. I learned that God knew I had Potential! I just didn't see it correctly. Please don't ever think you can't do something. Push through your doubt and seek God first for the answer! There's always a test in the testimony. Now I get to tell you mines.
What's thorough is look at how years later Gods still using it for His Glory!
This is #JustATouchof_J .. God just trying to put it all out there in pieces for you baby! ;)
Now let's get to these Ingredients for these my infamous "Apple Ginger Chayote Squash Chicken Wings!"
Here's the quick version of this recipe!
1 bag of chicken wings
White or Black Pepper
1/2 or 1/4 TSP Fresh Shredded Ginger
1/4 TSP Ground Ginger
1/4 TSP Cinnamon
1/2 Cup Brown Sugar
3 pinches of Nutmeg
1/4 Ocho Rios Oxtail Seasoning
1/2 TSP Holden Hoisin Sauce
1 TBS Honey
One Chayote Squash
Now for these instructions:
Make sure your bag of chicken wings are thawed and cleaned. Next add your amount of salt and pepper. (I don't use much)
In a separate bowl mix all your dry ingredients together.
Ground Ginger, Cinnamon, Brown Sugar, Nutmeg, and Ocho Rios Oxtail Seasoning.
In a separate sauce pan.. add half a cup of water, and your dry ingredients. Next add your cut up Apple and Chayote Squash. I like to put mines in the food processor and chop it up finely into a nice thick purée! Last add your Fresh Ginger, Holden Hoisin Sauce, and Honey. Cook on medium heat until the water has almost evaporated and the sauce has thickened. Squeeze a 1/4 TSP of lemon juice in the sauce! (This kicks it up a notch!)
Taste your sauce and make adjustments if needed.
Next pour your sauce evenly all over your wings.
Bake in the oven on 375 until golden brown.
Cook them to your liking.
When they're done say ..
I just made love in my kitchen baby!
Now you can have a taste.
