Celebrate World Nutella Day with Nutella Wings
Wednesday, 5 February is World Nutella Day, and Deliveroo is marking the occasion alongside Dublin food spot The Chilli Shack with a unique and original combination: Nutella Wings. Yes, that is just what it sounds like: chicken wings coated in a smooth and delicious Nutella-based marinade, blended with sauteed challots, fennel seeds and brown sugar, and a host of other savoury ingredients, topped off with Chilli Shack’s habanero hot sauce. Chocolate chicken wings? We’re not sold…except for the fact that we very much are.
