Here's a healthy alternative to fried wings: one of my famous recipes! The meat will fall off the bone! Unbelievable!
- 1 lb chicken wings
- 1 tablespoon cayenne pepper
- 1 teaspoon crushed red pepper flakes
- 1 tablespoon salt
- 1⁄2 cup louisiana hot sauce
- 1 tablespoon margarine
- Fill a large pot half way with water and then add the first 4 ingredients.
- Bring water mixture and wings to a boil and then boil for 15 minutes.
- Transfer wings to an oven safe container coated with cooking spray. Bake wings on "Broil" (high) for 15 minutes on each side.(For crispier wings, cook longer on each side, maybe 20 minutes per side).
- While waiting for wings, combine the Hot Sauce and Margarine in a microwave safe container and cook in microwave for 2 minutes or until melted. (You can cook the sauce longer for a thicker sauce).
- When wings are done, shake 'em up with the sauce and enjoy!
I doubt many of the reviewers actually did the recipe. i followed it to the letter, and would have wound up with burnt cinders if i followed through. I think the problem is semantics: there is a difference between "broil" and "bake". I broiled about 4 inches from the top burner. They started to burn after 5 minutes,the recipe calls for 15/20 minutes! perhaps "baking' at 425/450 would be more appropriate.
These were excellent! I made 2 batches. One of the reviews suggested that you brush with oil. This batch did not come out crispy. My second batch came out excellent, but I put the wings on a rack coated with cooking spray so they did not soak up any drippings. Very crispy and very delicious! NOTE: You can boil up a large batch of wings, cook some and freeze the rest. Thaw and just broil!
I did not add all the cayenne and red pepper flakes to the water when boiling and should have cut down on the salt also. However, this is a fabulous method and produced wings that tasted char broiled. So so good! I mixed 4 tablespoons melted butter with 1 teaspoon of cider vinegar and 1/3 cup of hot sauce and brushed it on before broiling.(Perfect amount of sauce for 14 individual sections of wings.) Less than 10 minutes per side and they were perfect! My quest for a great wing recipe is over. Thanks so much for sharing.
