Saw this on Good Eats and noticed that DH was practically drooling on the TV screen. Thought I'd save it for a rainy day...looks like it would be nice refreshing dinner idea to whip up ahead of time and enjoy that fact that it's fairly healthy too! Have yet to try.
I love buffalo wings, but not all the deep frying that is involved. I was watching "Good Eats" one day and Alton Brown's fool proof method to delicious buffalo wings was discovered! I did make a few adjustments to this recipe that helped me out... but stayed true to the original for the most part. This method may be a little time consuming, but the end result of crispy, fall of the bone, tender wings is well worth it. The cook time includes the 1 hour in which the wings rest/cool in the refrigerator before baking.

This recipe is absolutely delicious. The best pork chops anyone in my family had ever had!
I left out the walnuts and raisins and doubled the dried cherries and used dried poultry seasoning instead of the fresh sage.
Tender and succulent, this is fall-off-the-bone chicken, with tons of roasted garlic! This recipe can be made quicker and without too much fuss, it's suggested to purchase whole garlic cloves already peeled. They are usually found in a jar in the produce section and sometimes even packed in oil. :)
It is interesting how he puts the steaks right on the coals, hence the need for a blow dryer. It's a good episode to watch to see how creative he is. **If you don't do it directly on the hot coals, you need to cook it longer, like 2-3 minutes per side (and watch for flare ups). Really, you can make it any way you like! I sometimes use the broiler - heat up a cast iron skillet then place the steaks on it to broil - or just a quick pan fry with some olive oil. Oh, and DEFINITELY pay attention to the way to cut the steak, it makes all the difference! Makes a great marinade on whatever meat you choose :) Prep time includes a one hour marinating time.
Alton Brown is my FAVORITEST chef on the Food Network. He's funny and, like me, believes that everything in the kitchen should multi task. Most all of his recipes are easy and every-day stuff we can all enjoy. (Let's face it, some of those dishes from some of those cooks are a little too much trouble if you've got a hungry bunch or your market has limited selections.) This one, however, is simple and darn good.
