Yes, that’s right. You are looking at a meat chicken wing stuck into a bowl of creamy, yummy ranch dip. I know it’s like a train wreck that you can’t turn away from, and I can just hear some of you yelling “TREIF!” But before you totally freak out, let me tell you the pre-dinner story as it went down at my house last night.
I’ve been working like a mad woman for the past 3 days at my job – early mornings + late nights = neglected family, house, dog, cat and especially dinner. Who wants to cook dinner when you are so busy you don’t even have time to break for lunch? Not me. So that was the scene last night when my hubbie called me on his way home from work to ask, “what’s for dinner?” “Well, I’ll tell you what’s for dinner,” I say. “Not a darn thing unless you stop at the store and get something.”
So hubbie went to our local Tom Thumb and came home with a box of frozen Meal Mart spicy Buffalo-style chicken wings. I baked the chicken wings, along with some non-spicy chicken nuggets for my daughter and just as we were about to sit down to eat, I had a wonderful Treif idea … You can’t have Buffalo wings without ranch dip, right? So, Tofutti Pareve Sour Cream + Lipton’s Pareve Ranch Recipe Secrets = a yummy, creamy (very dairy-like) dip that is just perfect to tame the spice of the chicken wings.
So I whipped up a batch and we happily dipped spicy chicken wings and various other veggies into our ranch dip. It made for a fast, easy-to-prep dinner and not a single chicken wing was left behind. I also have a great recipe for homemade chicken wings that I’ll post soon, but if you’re in a hurry, this menu can’t be beat.
