Happy National Chicken Wing Day! To celebrate, use my Crispy Chicken Wings recipe to bake your wings to perfection and add one of my favorite sauces to finish them off!
Crispy Chicken Wings
- 10 chicken wings
- 1 tablespoon baking powder
- 1/2 tsp salt
Preheat the oven to 250 degrees and cover a cookie sheet with aluminum foil. Place a metal drying rack on the baking sheet.
Combine ingredients in a plastic bag or mixing bowl and make sure that all the chicken is well coated with the mixture. Cook in the oven for 30 minutes.
Take the wings out of the oven and raise the temperature to 425. Cook an additional 40-50 minutes in the oven.
Coat the wings in your favorite sauce and enjoy!
Buffalo Chicken Sauce
- 2 tablespoons cayenne pepper
- 1 teaspoon oregano
- 1 teaspoon cumin powder
- 1 teaspoon chili pepper
- 1 tablespoon apple cider vinegar
- 5 tablespoons water
Make sure to thoroughly combine the ingredients (to disperse the cayenne pepper) in a large bowl. Coat your wings and serve.
- 20 cloves of garlic
- 3 tablespoons olive oil
- 1 tablespoon pepper
- 1 teaspoon salt
- 3 tablespoons butter
Completely de skin and peel the garlic, place into an oven safe container and add your olive oil, salt and pepper. Bake in the oven, covered with aluminum foil, at 325 for about an hour or until the garlic is roasted and soft in texture.
Take out of the oven and mash up the garlic mixture with a fork. Add in the butter, combine with the wings and serve.
