I love chicken wings, but was looking for a more “figure-friendly” version. So I asked myself why not try making my very own by baking them? I had to find the right combination of technique and ingredients that would give taste and crispiness to satisfy the most demanding palates (not interested in their figure) . After many tries… here it is!
They can be make with fresh or frozen chicken; if using frozen increase cooking time by 15 mins (total) . For a low-carb version, use a low carb sweetener instead of sugar. The best part is that you have the freedom of making the wings as hot or as mild as you like, even within the same batch!
Enjoy with celery sticks and blue cheese dressing, or whip up a batch of honey-mustard sauce.
Ingredients: (4 to 6 servings)
5 lbs chicken wing sections
salt, pepper and or seasoning to your taste
1/4 cup vegetable oil such as canola oil
1/2 stick of butter
1/4 cup apple cider vinegar
2 Tbls sugar or artificial sweetener
Hot sauce to your taste
Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Salt, pepper and or condiment chicken wings, place on a baking tray and cook in the oven for 15 minutes. Turn wings over once and let cook for another 10 minutes or until wings are brown.
In large sauté pan, melt the butter and slowly incorporate the vinegar and the sweetener. Add hot sauce to taste, start with a tablespoon and remember to taste often. Once the sauce is to your desired heat incorporate 1/4 the wings, turn to coat with the sauce, let cook for a minute and remove with thongs. Incorporate another batch and repeat the operation.
Serve immediately with celery sticks and blue cheese dressing. Enjoy!
