CHIPOTLE GARLIC BUFFALO CHICKEN LEGS RECIPE

 

While RVing in the Pacific Northwest, I was having a massive craving for Buffalo Chicken Legs. Normally people cook chicken wings with buffalo sauce, but I love having them with legs because they are meatier. Thus, the Chipotle Garlic Buffalo Chicken Legs recipe was born!

 

Now, you are probably thinking that chipotle and buffalo will be too hot together for the average person. You would be correct. However, what if you made a campfire bleu cheese dipping sauce with it?

 

That would be legit and quench the fire from my Chipotle Garlic Rub and the homemade buffalo sauce. Let’s do it!

CHIPOTLE COFFEE RUB STEAK SKILLET

I have been on a coffee steak rub kick lately. Honestly, finely ground coffee is one of the most amazing things to have on a steak. It is sweet, savory and full of flavor that you cannot get from most seasonings. This Chipotle Coffee Rub is no exception.

 

 

This rub is super easy to make for people whose lives are on the road. Most of the ingredients can be found in a common RV kitchen! I made the steak rub into a breakfast skillet as well because I always wanted to try coffee rub steak in the morning. Turns out it pairs really well with eggs, potatoes and coffee to drink!

First you are going to cook the potatoes in the cast iron over the fire. Potatoes take about 10-15 minutes to fully cook. Moreover, you will put that skillet to a multi-purpose use. As the potatoes are finishing, you will add the steak to one side of the skillet and cook till its done. As the steak is cooking, I topped my potatoes with some eggs and then covered the skillet. Cook for another 5 minutes and everything should be ready to go!

Only tip here is to pull that steak off the skillet once it is done. If you let it rest for 5-8 minutes, then you will keep the juices inside from cooking fully. Top with some parsley and you are ready to eat!

Enjoy!

DAD’S BEST BROWNIES

One of many fond memories I have of my late dad was his love for cooking and baking. He and I would make these brownies together quite often and they never lasted long. I continue to make this recipe now for my kids, reliving the experience of baking with my dad each and every time. Bon appetit.

Ingredients

  • 1⁄2 cup flour
  • 1⁄3 cup cocoa powder
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1⁄2 cup vegetable oil
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 1⁄4 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1⁄4 teaspoon salt

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 350F
  2. Blend together and mix oil and sugar
  3. Add the eggs and vanilla and mix until combined
  4. In a separate bowl, mix all of the dry ingredients making sure no lumps remain
  5. Gently stir the dry ingredients into the oil and sugar
  6. Grease a 9 x 9 pan and pour the batter into it smoothing off the top
  7. Bake for around 20 minutes or until the sides of the brownies start to pull away from the pan
  8. Very important – please cool before cutting otherwise it will be a crumbly mess.
  9. Note:  Sometimes when we were feeling ambitious, we’d add walnuts to the batter and would top with homemade chocolate ganache (recipe below)

Chocolate Ganache

Ingredients:

  • 1 cup chocolate chips
  • 5 tablespoons heavy cream
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract

Steps:

  1. Bring the heavy cream and vanilla extract to a boil in a small saucepan on the stovetop.
  2. Remove the saucepan from the heat and pour the hot cream mixture over the chocolate chips in a bowl. Stir until the chocolate chips are smooth and melted. Allow mixture to cool slightly (it will thicken) and spread atop brownies.

A Sweet Bon Appetit 🙂 xoxo
