Tropical Cocktail Wings

Tropical Cocktail Wings will wow your guests. Fast, easy and it’s party time! Serve them in a carved pineapple for extra special Holiday flair!

This week Sunday Supper wants to show you last minute entertaining doesn’t mean just setting out cheese and crackers! We’ve come up with over 30 ideas to make last minute guests feel extra special.

The holiday season schedule can be tough on us trying to include everyone and not forget anyone! I admit my eyes bug out when I get a last minute Christmas card from someone I didn’t have on my list! A quick scramble to reciprocate. Pick the right card. Cross my fingers that I have stamps left. Rush to the post office dropbox (yes, they were closed for the day) and get it in the mail!

So I try my best not to have a meltdown when planning last minute parties or get-togethers.

These Tropical Cocktail Wings look like you went to a lot of trouble but in reality are ready in less than 30 minutes!

I keep a bag of frozen wings handy for when Tom’s football buddies drop over to watch the game. Wings are so versatile, right? Hot wings, BBQ wings, Garlic Parmesan and so on.

Coconut milk for the dredge and pineapple juice in the glaze will send your mouth on a tropical vacation! Don’t forget to toast the coconut!

dredged wings

Sweet, Tropical Cocktail Wings satisfy wing lovers wanting something different. Of course you can still include the old standbys too!

  17. Fantastic idea, Cindy! With all the tropical ingredients you’ve included I can almost feel the Hawaiian breeze with every bite =) P.s. Wonderful too for dairy sensitive folk to use coconut milk =)
