A family favorite . . . Buffalo Chicken Wings
One of the things that always makes my guys happy is buffalo chicken wings . . . and they like them hot! But I don't necessarily like frying them . . . too much grease and the house smells like fried food . . . So I found this recipe and it really works!
Buffalo Hot Wings (not fried)
1 c flour
1/2 tsp cayenne pepper
1/2 tsp paprika
1/2 tsp salt
20 chicken wings
Mix together the dry ingredients. Put in a large plastic zipper bag. Add part of the wings and shake to coat. Repeat till all wings are coated. Cover with plastic wrap and refrigerate for 2 hours.
After 2 hours, place the wings on an aluminum covered cookie sheet that has been generously sprayed with non-stick spray. Bake in a 400* oven for 40 - 50 minutes, turning a couple of times.
While the wings are cooking, prepare the hot sauce.
1/4 c butter, melted
1/4 hot sauce (I prefer Franks)
2 dashes black pepper
1 tsp. garlic powder (more if a more garlic flavor is preferred)
Mix these ingredients together. Toss the cooked wings in the sauce and serve with celery and bleu cheese dressing!!
