Chrissy Teigen Adds An Asian Flare To A Classic Recipe!

Now, don’t get us wrong.  We love the annual 4th of July picnics and BBQ’s, but with the fireworks all set off and the freezer emptied of every last hamburger, we think it’s about time that we step away from the potato salad and try our hand at a slightly more elevated summer dish.  Thankfully, model Chrissy Teigen hasn’t let the holiday stop her from whipping up a scrumptious new entree that would be perfect for us to test drive this weekend! For her latest post via her sassy-sweet blog, So Delushious!, the culinary beauty shared her latest tasty concoction, Southeast Asian Chicken Wings and Asian Slaw. Tangy, sweet, and spicy, these wings are the perfect summer pairing if you’re looking for an innovative take on the laid back classic. The best part-aside from the chicken’s smoky juiciness that is- these wings are grilled on a skewer, which means no mess and a fun way to dive right in and indulge! To get started today, check out the recipe here and head over to So Delushious for step-by-step images and more of Chrissy’s mouthwatering recipes!
