What’s For Dinner?
Tandoori Touchdown Wings
(First star is lowest, fourth star is highest)
These Indian-inspired treats will surprise your guests, because they're far from the average wings. Don't over-marinate the wings, or the acid in the yogurt may cause the texture of the meat to be too soft. If you prefer, you can use nectarines instead of mangoes in the chutney. Garam masala is an Indian spice blend available in supermarkets or Indian markets.
