I stumbled upon this recipe a couple of weeks back when my friend, Stephen Wilson, revealed one of his tried and true infused dishes, and what a perfect time of year to divulge in his extra-easy and delicious spicy infused chicken wings. He graciously opened his doors to us in order to pass on this delectable recipe to the rest of the world. It’s an excellent addition to any party (or even just a night on the couch). You can expect a light and sweet cannabis flavor that is complemented by a touch of heat without overwhelming the palate.

Stephen’s tips for an even better chicken wing experience:

  • Dry your chicken on a paper towel before covering in seasoning mix – the flour coating will stick much better to dried chicken.
  • Drop in a little buffalo sauce for added flavor!
  • Grab two pounds of chicken and set one pound aside (following all directions sans cannabutter) for a round of extra munchies.

Note: The amount of cannabis butter specified in this recipe is a very loose suggestion; the actual amount you use should be modified based on the strength of your cannabutter and the potency you desire. Dosing homemade edibles can be tricky, so the best way to test for potency is to start with one portion of a serving, wait one to two hours, then make an informed decision on whether to consume more. Always dose carefully and listen to your body, and never drive under the influence of cannabis.
