Maple-glazed Wings with Bacon

In baking, chicken on January 28, 2013 at 6:08 pm


With a title like Fifty Shades of Chicken and a suggestive cover of a voluptuous chicken all glazed and bound bondage style, this book had me quivering in anticipation of the pleasures of the flesh nestled with the bosom of its pages.

Yes, this is a parody cookbook of the wildly successful Fifty Shades of Grey by EL James. Fowler was quick to jump onto the gravy train of Fifty Shades. Expect lots of thrusting (of fillings into chicken cavities – now get your mind out of that filthy gutter!), begging (to be marinated and cooked), sliding (into the oven), screaming of safe words (Golden! Golden! Black!!), ripping of (tin) foil and spanking (with a rolling pin). Fans of Fifty Shades will appreciate the references to the trilogy and get to relive the tense attraction between the two protagonists – Shifty Blades and Miss Hen.

I’ve marked the book with many post-its as many of the recipes seem easy enough and the ingredients readily available. For my virgin attempt, I chose Maple-glazed Wings with Bacon. Only because I had chicken wings and bacon in the freezer.

The recipe calls for restraining of the wings with bacon. Hmm… Christian Grey would approve. Unfortunately, Miss Steele feels like this is more vanilla chicken than a hot, kinky experiment. Patience, my dear. Hopefully the rest of the recipes will live up to its kinky-cookery inspiration.

Shopping list: maple syrup (I used honey instead), scallions (spring onion) chicken wings, bacon

From the pantry: soy sauce, rice wine vinegar or apple cider, garlic, black pepper

Hardware: baking tray, tin foil, oven

Can I do it?: Yes, baby, yes!!! But be gentle with the bacon strips when you tie up the wings.

Credits: Fifty Shades of Chicken by EL Fowler. And thanks to Wee for the book.
