2 pounds chicken wings

Olive oil, for drizzling

Super Bowl BBQ Wing Spice Blend

2 tablespoons coriander seeds

2 tablespoons cumin seeds

2 tablespoons black peppercorns

2 tablespoons paprika

½ tablespoon dried basil

½ tablespoon dried oregano

2 tablspoons kosher or sea salt

½ -1 teaspoon cayenne pepper (your call)

2 tablespoons finely ground coffee (pick your favourite)

Dipping Sauce

2/3 cup sour cream

1/2 cup crumbled blue cheese, such as Roquefort or Danish blue

2 tablespoons spring onions or chives, finely chopped

1 tablespoon fresh lemon juice



Heat up your BBQ! Place chicken wings into a large Ziploc bag and drizzle olive oil on wings – shake the bag up to cover the wings with oil. Sprinkle ½ tablespoon of the rub on the wings and shake to cover them. Ensure that they are all lightly covered with the rub…add more if needed.

BBQ wings on an oiled grill, grilling is the best way to cook chicken wings as it allows the fat to drain away and gives you a nice, crispy wing without a lot of excess fat. To avoid flare-ups keep a medium flame, you don't want too high of a temperature. You will also need to turn the wings frequently to avoid burning. It will mean standing by the grill for about 15 to 20 minutes. As always with poultry don't undercook. Test your chicken wings when they are getting close by removing one and cutting it open. There should be no pink inside and any juices should run clear. Serve the chicken wings hot, with dip on the side.

Super Bowl BBQ Wing Spice Blend

Combine coriander seeds, cumin seeds and peppercorns in a small, heavy skillet. Shake pan over medium heat for 2-3 minutes, or just until you can smell the spicy aroma.

Crush spices with a mortar and pestle or grind in a spice mill. Combine with remaining ingredients.

Makes about ½ cup (save leftovers in a sealed glass jar for your next guys get together)!

Dipping Sauce

Mix the dip ingredients in a bowl and blend well. Keep refrigerated until you’re ready to dip!
