So I’m not really sure this qualifies as a recipe, but more of a how to. As it turns out, chicken wings are pretty easy to make and are a lot cheaper when made at home. They are relatively easy – the only real leg work is separating the wing. I forgot to take pictures of it but you can check out this video on youtube, it’s a really good how-to.
I had no idea, but there is an entire section in the grocery store dedicated to wing sauce, which is awesome. My boyfriend is more into the sweet and spicy sauce and I’m a fan of the original buffalo sauce so we selected Frank’s Red Hot Wing Sauce (Special shout out to Scott who gave me his super secret wing recipe) and Moore’s Honey BBQ Wing Sauce.
The Franks was a pretty typical buffalo sauce, not overwhelming spicy but a good flavor. The Honey BBQ was a perfect combo of sweet and spicy but it also had a faint hint of bbq flavor, not overwhelming.
40 chicken wings – separated
2 cups wing sauce of choice (we did two kinds, so 1 cup of each sauce)
1. Pre-heat oven to 500 degrees
2. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper
3. Bake the wings for 20 minutes (you don’t need to flip)
4. Let the wings cool for 3-4 minutes and place them in a large ziplock bag
5. Pour the sauce into the bag and shake making sure all the wings are coated
6. Pour into a bowl and serve with carrots, blue cheese and ranch
