I had the privilege of having 10 friends over to my house for coxinha da asa, chicken wings, the other night. It all started with one friend asking if I had seen a video of a guy trying 30 different hot wing sauces and asking if we could do something like it. I said send me the video and I will see if we can do it.
We finally decided that about 10 people would be the max and that 5-6 sauces would be a good number because then everyone could try one of each and then eat more of the sauces that they prefer. The death sauce which I made was good but I wanted it to be hotter, I went and purchased 5 different peppers that I found in Brazil and then blended them together to make the sauce. I purchased the sweet pepper sauce and Frank’s hot sauce and the sweet pepper sauce was probably my second favorite sauce of the day. I also made teriyaki, barbeque, and garlic parmesan sauce from scratch, I think that the barbeque was my favorite sauce of the day.
Along with the chicken wings I also made ranch dipping sauce from scratch to dip the wings into. It is important when you have wings that you also have a couple of sides. The sides for the night were carrot sticks, a classic pairing, and homemade macaroni and cheese with candied bacon topping.
I am so thankful that my friends were able to come over and enjoy the food. It is pretty clear that they were all comfortable with the events of the night.
My churrasceira did not hold all of the chicken wings so I had to cook them in 3 batches in the grill. The first batch seemed to just wet the appetite of the people for more wings. I am glad that between everyone there was one or two sauces which they liked and they were all different.
One of my favorite part’s of the night was seeing cemetery full at the end of the night. Seeing the bones of about 7 kilos of chicken wings in one bowl was a sight to see.
