Food Recipe: Chicken Wings

This is a really simple chicken wing recipe that Chris created by looking at various recipes and preparations found on the internet.  Broiling was a preferred method because it cuts down on the fat and clean up of frying.  Also, because you're creating the marinade and hot sauce from scratch, you can really customize it however you please.  For example, if you want hotter wings feel free to add more cayenne pepper, red chili flakes or any other hot spice to the mix.  Not one for hot wings?  Try substituting cayenne pepper with other herbs and spices like curry powder, grated parmesan, onion powder or even poultry spice mixes.  And don't be afraid to use fresh ingredients like roasted minced garlic, grated ginger or even orange zest!

Chicken Wing Recipe

Hot Sauce (Also used as the Marinade)
1/2 cup of vinegar
2 tablespoons of melted butter
1 tablespoon of Cayenne Pepper
1/2 teaspoon of Paprika
1 tablespoon of Garlic Powder
2 tablespoons of Brown Sugar
1/2 teaspoon of salt and pepper, or to your taste

24 chicken wings

- Separate the wings from the drumettes, if they are still attached, by making a cut at the joint.
- In a large (big enough to hold all the wings and drumettes) combine all hot sauce ingredients and whisk together.
- Add chicken wings and drumettes and coat evenly, cover and refrigerate for at least 30 minutes.
- Before you turn on the broiler, line the broiler pan with aluminum foil to catch any drippings.
- Remove wings from the fridge arrange on a broiler pan, broil for 10 mins. on each side until golden brown.
- Remove from the broiler pan and serve with your choice of dipping sauce.

- If wings are still under cooked after 10 mins. on each side, add an additional 5 mins. for each side.
- Try not to over crowd the broiler pan, give each wing and drumette enough room to cook all around
- If you prefer wet wings, make another batch of hot sauce and coat the already cooked wings with it before serving.
- If wings are browning too quickly, place broiler pan lower from the heat source.
- If hot sauce is too runny, reduce the amount of vinegar used by 1/4 of a cup.
- If your oven doesn't have a broiler, set your oven to 400 degrees fahrenheit and follow the cooking directions.
