NBA All Star Game at Toyota Center

Posted

The best players in the NBA headed to Houston for the NBA All-Star Game this past weekend, and fans attending the festivities got in on the action with the best in basketball dining.  We dished up the ultimate sports snacks and drinks, shining a spotlight on great local flavors.
Toyota Center Executive Chef Atanacio Zamora spent months crafting the All-Star Game menu, with a slam dunk coming from his spicy grilled chicken wings.  Chef tip – make the wings extra spicy or on the mild side by adjusting the amount of chipotle peppers and cumin.
Spicy Grilled Chicken Wings
16 chicken wings, de-jointed
4 tablespoons vegetable oil
2 teaspoons chipotle peppers, canned in adobo
2 tablespoons honey
½ cub green onions, chopped
2 teaspoons garlic, minced
1 teaspoon salt
2 teaspoons ground cumin
½ teaspoon cayenne pepper
Bamboo skewers for serving
Buttermilk Dip

In a food processor, add the vegetable oil, chipotle peppers, honey, green onions, garlic, salt, cumin and cayenne pepper and blend until just combined.
Using bamboo skewers, place 4 chicken wings on each skewer. Place the chicken wings in a plastic zipper bag and add the marinade. Refrigerate overnight.

Prepare a charcoal grill to medium-hot heat. Place chicken wings on the grill and cook for about 10-15 minutes, turning and basting constantly with marinade. Serve chicken wings with buttermilk dip.

Buttermilk Dip
1 cup sour cream
½ cup buttermilk
2 teaspoons garlic, minced
1 teaspoon Worcestershire sauce
1 teaspoon granulated sugar
1 teaspoon salt
½ teaspoon white pepper

Combine all of the ingredients and mix thoroughly. Adjust seasoning to taste. Chill and serve dip with spicy grilled chicken wings.
