Chicken wings, deep fried and seasoned with the flavors of pumpkin spiced latte. What are the odds that I, a Caucasian female-bodied individual, would find such a concept so fascinating?
Alright, I’m ready to move on from alluding to stale generalizations and get down to the business that is these Pumpkin Spiced Latte Chicken Wings.
You need not be a “white girl” to take advantage of this extraordinary recipe for Pumpkin Spiced Latte Chicken Wings because Pumpkin Spiced Latte does not belong solely to the white woman—it belongs to the people. Chicken wings belong to chickens, and via the circle of life, they too will inevitably belong to the people (minus vegetarians). But, I digress. If you choose to unite these two eminent ingredients, “Pumpkin Spiced Latte” and chicken wings, you’ll have a formula for peace on Earth. Maybe.
Browned to pumpkin perfection, Pumpkin Spiced Latte Chicken Wings are enchantingly crispy.
To make the pumpkin spice mixture, combine ground cinnamon, cloves, ginger, nutmeg, and allspice in a regular bowl—one cup of each. Next, mix the spices along with a cup of brown sugar, two cups of flour, and…pumpkin spice. Roll the chicken in this powder blend and fry for 10 minutes until they’re a gorgeous golden brown. Then set them aside for a hot minute. A hot latte minute.
Now, there’s a reason these chicken wings are called “Pumpkin Spiced Latte.” Grab a cup of hot sauce, two cups of pumpkin puree, and more of that pumpkin spice stuff; mix these together over the stove. Then, pour in the most important ingredient: half a cup of brewed coffee!
Add one last cup of brown sugar to the sauce, let it simmer, then whisk, whisk, whisk. Finally, pour the sauce over the fried wings, generously—look how they gleam in the light, how they shine.
Yep, it’s arguable that this recipe makes all other chicken wing recipes seem, dare I say it, basic. But what do I know, I’m just a Caucasian female-bodied individual…
