Chicken Wings

Hubby and I were planning on spending the evening watching NFL. And he had been craving chicken wings for a while. He ordered some last weekend and wasn’t impressed, so he was still looking to satisfy that craving. We trekked out in the 6″ of snow we got and headed to grab groceries for the week and decided to make chicken wings for dinner. The only thing missing was some cold beers!

I followed a recipe from Mrs Sac’s Purple Kitchen, except used a different sauce (those B-Dubs sauces are awesome though!)

Chicken wings – from Mrs Sac’s Purple Kitchen
2.5 lbs chicken wings, rinsed, dried, separated, and wings discarded
salt and pepper to taste
1/2 tbsp garlic powder – I didn’t measure, just sprinkled some on
3-4 tbsp butter, divided
about 2 tbsp vegetable oil
BBQ sauce – I used Nance’s hot wing sauce (hot for hubby and mild for me)

Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Coat a baking sheet with tin foil and non-stick spray.

Spread out wings on the baking sheet, drizzle a little vegetable oil over them and turn to coat. We just tossed the wings in a bowl with the olive oil, salt, pepper, and garlic powder.

Lightly season wings with salt, pepper, garlic powder on both sides. Put in the oven and bake for 20 minutes, turn over and baking for an additional 20 minutes.

Meanwhile, heat approximately 1 cup sauce and 3-4 tbsp butter in saucepan (separate if using different sauces). Heat till simmering and mixture is reduced.

Remove wings from oven. If there is a lot of liquid on the tin foil, drain off, or replace and spray with non-stick spray. Pour sauce on wings and turn to coat. Bake for an additional 10-15 minutes, sauce will become like a glaze. Enjoy with ranch, bleu cheese & celery sticks.

    Thanks for posting the taco seasoning recipe. My husband and I make tacos all the time and were always buying those silly packets. Turns out we have all of the spices we need in our cupboard already! Looking forward to trying it!

    Great idea. I tend to use the slow cooker more in cooler months, don’t know why, but I think I’ll try this – sure looks good.

    A lot of people say that Libby, but I would argue that it’s even better in the summer because it doesn’t heat up your kitchen to cook dinner. We use ours about once a week.

    This sounds really great! I am going to be using my crock pot a lot more as I get deeper into nursing school.

    Also, did you get your new lens? That first picture is really great 🙂
