For those of you who could care less about Valentine's day, but are lamenting the loss of football Sundays, go ahead and crack open a beer and soothe your broken heart with a batch of these excellent hot wings. This super simple recipe is adapted from Grace Parisi's, check out her variations: Thai green curry, maple-chipotle, etc., at Food & Wine. The active time is all of ten minutes, and you'll be ready to dig into these classically crispy and hot wings in just under an hour. Don't worry, it'll be kick-off time before you know it!
