New year, new you, right? While eating healthy and working out are excellent habits, everyone deserves a “cheat” day.  Here, for your absolute pleasure, is a cheat meal you can work into your balanced lifestyle.


Sweet with Heat Wings

2 lbs chicken wings
4 tbsp extra virgin olive oil
4 tbsp dark brown sugar
1 tsp garlic powder
1 tsp ancho chili powder
1/2 tsp cayenne
1 tsp salt
1 tsp black pepper
1/2 tsp smoked paprika
1 tsp onion powder
Dip:
1/2 cup mayonnaise
1/2 cup sour cream
1 tsp dill weed, dry
1/2 tsp parsley, dry
1/2 tsp chives, fresh/dry
1/4 tsp onion powder
1/2 tsp garlic powder
1/4 tsp salt
1/8 tsp black pepper

Preheat oven to 350°F. Mix all dip ingredients together and set aside in the fridge. Mix all remaining ingredients (except wings) together in a bowl to form a loose paste. Massage the mixture onto the wings and ensure they are thoroughly coated. Spread wings out on a parchment-lined pan. Bake for about 40 minutes, until the internal temperature reaches 165°F. Serve immediately with dip.
Yield: 2-4 servings
