Step 1: MARINATE WINGS

Read through the entire recipe before getting started. Remove chicken wings from package; rinse and pat dry. Smash garlic cloves; then, rough chop. Place yogurt, harissa, cumin, 1 Tbsp. apple cider vinegar and a pinch of salt and pepper in a large baking dish. Mix until fully incorporated. Add chicken wings and toss until wings are fully coated. If making ahead: cover with parshment paper and aluminum foil (parshment first, aluminum on top) and refrigirate for 2-3 hours. Otherwise cover with parshment paper and aluminum foil (parshment first, aluminum on top), refrigirate and marinate for 30-35 min.

Step 2: PREP POTATOES

When chicken wings have 15 min left begin preping the potatoes. Preheat oven to 400ºF. Cut potatoes in half; then, cut into 1" wedges to form frites. Toss potatoes with 2 Tbsp. oil and a pinch of salt and pepper until incorporated. Place potatoes on baking sheet spreading out to allow space between wedges and direct contact with the baking sheet.

Dissolve vegetable broth base in ¾ cup of warm water. Heat 1 Tbsp. oil in medium sauté pan over medium heat. Remove cover from wings. Carefully remove wings from marinade and transfer to pan.

While wings are baking begin tossing the salad (Step #5) USDA recommends cooking chicken to an internal temperature of 165ºF.
