Crispy, hot wings without the hassle of deep-frying or the lengthy marinating process. Though I live a mere hour's drive north of the city from which buffalo wings originated, I can't find a place that makes decent wings! This recipe is a combination of a wing recipe from Better Homes and Gardens cookbook and the sauce we always used at home. I don't claim credit for it by any means, but I think it should be posted, because it's awesome!
- Cut off wing tips; discard. Separate wings at joint.
- Place wings in a single layer on a wire rack inside a shallow pan (to catch grease). (You can use a broiler pan, but the super thin bars of the wire rack keep the meat from sticking).
- Broil 4 to 5 inches from heat for 10 minutes or until lightly browned. Use the stove fan if you have one; the grease from the meat makes a lot of smoke.
- Turn. Broil another 10 to 15 minutes or until meat is no longer pink.
- Meanwhile, microwave butter in large, microwave-safe bowl.
- Add hot sauce.
- Add wings to bowl and cover. Shake until wings are well coated.
- Serve hot with celery ribs, carrot sticks, and blue cheese dressing, if desired.
