Autumn in Vancouver is very distinct. The weather in September Labour Day gets crisper, the rain starts rolling in and traffic is insane with everyone is in a mad rush to get to back to school or work. Secretly, I'm using Em as an excuse to shop for school supplies. Who says a 2-year old doesn't need these gradient pens?!
To keep up with all the kid's activities, there's no denying meal-planning and versatility is a must! This recipe holds up even a few days later and everyone doesn't even seem to mind to eat it cold (if we get too lazy to reheat it).
I am working Turkey Farmers of Canada again to bring you another quick and delicious recipe using Canadian Turkey like this and this.
Vietnamese Spicy Caramel Turkey Wing Recipe
This Vietnamese Spicy Caramel Turkey Wing Recipe is easy, big on flavour, yet quick to make! This simple oven turkey wing recipe is rich and tangy. The spiciness can be adjusted to your heat preference or omitted if you are feeding little ones. For us, I usually make two batches. One spicy and one non-spicy.
These oven baked turkey wings are perfect for your Thanksgiving Menu. This non traditional Thanksgiving dinner idea is an entertaining side for adults and kids!
Turkey is a tasty, versatile and very nutritious lean protein that easily adapts to different flavours. It can be used for milder dishes like turkey pho or turkey congee or bolder, brighter, flavours like this recipe.
I love how it is a concentrated source of protein to help build strong, healthy muscles and packed with Iron, Zinc, Sodium, Vitamin B12, Niacin, Selenium, Vitamin D, Potassium and Magnesium, Phosphorus and Tryptophan.
Marinating Your Turkey Wings
Poke a few holes in your turkey wings to help the marinade infuse deeper into the big giant wings. I usually like to marinate overnight in a reusable food storage bag. If you are in a pinch for time, even 20 mins help.
These baked spicy caramel wings are juicy, moist and tender.
Try making this recipe with turkey thighs. Grill the cutlets to add to your rice and top it off with a fried egg! Remember to pound the turkey into thin pieces like a cutlet.

Love the sweet and spicy combo. I’ve never thought of making turkey wings before (only chicken). This is a great addition/alternative for Thanksgiving!
Turkey wings are excellent. They are bigger and still juicy! You can get them in packs at Superstore! Of course, chicken wings are wonderful any time too!
