Chicken Wings with Red Pesto

Today, I have prepared for you a special recipe to give a healthy Italian touch to your chicken wings. Avoid deep frying the chicken and cook it slowly… This gourmet mixture combines Pitted Leccina Olives and Red Pesto to create a combination of fresh new flavours.

Red Pesto is a tasty sauce that combines the sweet and rich flavour of sun-dried tomatoes with carrots, celery, basil,  olive oil and a mixture of nuts. It is the perfect alternative to a healthy nutritious and easy meal.

This unique combination will result in a creamy and flavorful sauce. If you like your chicken wings with a spicy touch, try adding few tablespoons of hot chilly pepper spread to your sauce!

So call your friends over and prepare my:

Clean carefully the chicken wings with water, then dry them with kitchen paper. Season them with a pinch of salt.

Fry a clove of garlic in a pan with a little bit of Extra Virgin Olive Oil “Il Vero”. When brown, remove the garlic and sauteè the chicken wings for few minutes each side. When the wings are golden, blend it with white wine. Let the alcohol evaporate for 5 minutes on a medium heat.
