Greek Chicken Wings


Greek Chicken Wings | Cooking on the Front Burner

Time to get your game day food on with 12 great recipes from our 12 blogger group!  Perfect timing don't you agree?  There is nothing better than munching on snacks, watching the game and maybe enjoying a tasty beverage.  You'll see too that wings are more than just mild, medium and hot with these flavorful and unique recipes.  I'm bringing to the party these Greek Chicken Wings served with a creamy tzatziki sauce.  Keep reading to see what the others came up with.

Let's talk about teams - who do you cheer for?  We're in Minnesota so we don our gold and purple when watching the Vikings.  We usually go to one game a year with our good friends where it is so fun to be where the action is!  This year we have tickets to a game in November and I sure hope the weather is half way decent since they are playing outside in the Gopher stadium - next year the new stadium will be done.

    3. Ah, you had a bum game last night didn't you? So did I -- unfortunately I'm a Raider fan and it was one of the most horrible showings ever! At least there's the food -- these wings would've distracted me from the game! :)
