Super hot and spicy chicken wings that are low carb too
Spicy chicken wings were on my mind all day after I watched Megatoad (aka Matt Stonie) eating sixty-five (65) chicken wings on his YouTube channel. He starts mild and steps up to the really hot and spicy chicken wings towards the end and then has a mishap with sauce in his eye.
I went grocery shopping this morning and picked up eight wings for $4.50.
In the meantime podcasting friends from the USA who were being snowed upon were talking about blazing hot buffalo wings too. I reckon if I was snowed upon and freezing cold I’d want hot and spicy chicken wings too. You could argue I’m eating these at the wrong time of the year, especially when today got to 37 °C (98.6 °F). I had the oven on for an hour so it warmed up the living area even more. I do like a warm environment and today was certainly warm, it’s a pity it wasn’t humid.
Super hot and spicy chicken wings made with ground Queensland nuts, smoked almonds, iodised salt, black peppercorns, smoked paprika, dried mixed herbs, bird’s eye chillies, and chilli flakes.

Chilli and nut crusted chicken wings ready for the oven
I dried some bird’s eye chillis in the oven earlier in the afternoon to get the flat nice and cozy.

It may look like a large piece of cream cheese, but it went well with the hot and spicy chicken wings.
Questions and answers
Why do you like hot and spicy chicken wings?
The meat is always tender, the skin is easy to get crispy and it’s always good to have some chilli and nuts every day.
What’s with the kale?
Lots of fibre and some iron.
How is this a low carb meal?
Rather than using any sugar or sweet syrups in the rub like a lot of recipes, I made a shot and spicy nutty rub and really massaged it into the skin.
