Sweet Chili Beer Chicken Fingers

With football starting back up its time for chicken wings. Well these are close enough in my opinion. This is a recipe from the beeroness. She operates a really cool blog about cooking with beer if you have  half a second check her out (she is way better at this than I am).

Anyway, I changed it up a bit and of course used one of my own hand crafted beers but man did they come out well. The beer I chose was an apricot pale ale the bitterness of the hops plays really well with the sweet apricot flavor. If you want to see the original recipe click the link above and it will shoot you over to her site. Hope you enjoy and I will let her recipe speak for itself! Cheers.
