Colavita by Mike Colameco: Philippine Spicy Wings

Yields12 ServingsPrep Time15 minsCook Time35 minsTotal Time50 mins

This dish inspired by Adobo I had in the Philippines is super tasty and easy. The wings should be marinated overnight for best flavor and then the dish can be prepared very quickly the next day. The flavors are big and complex, and the Colavita EVOO really helps tie them all together.

 12 chicken wings, separated at the joints
 1 oz Colavita Balsamic Vinegar
 ½ cup soy sauce
 3 garlic cloves, minced
 3 tbsp sugar
 1 tbsp whole or ground black peppercorns
 4 tbsp chopped scallions
 2 oz Colavita Extra Virgin Olive Oil

Combine the soy sauce, garlic, sugar and black pepper into a marinade, and set some aside.


Coat the chicken wings with the marinade well, and marinate at least 6 hours or overnight.


Pre-heat oven to 375.


Dredge the wings in flour or tapioca starch, and then sauté until they have color.


Add the rest of the marinade to the pan and bring it to a simmer, then bake for 25 minutes.


At the 10-minute mark in the oven, add a generous tablespoon of Colavita Balsamic Vinegar and continue cooking until done.


Serve topped with chopped scallions and sauce as a glaze.
