I usually don’t like to brag, but I just received one of the greatest honors of my entire life…
BEST WING MAKER…EVER!!!
The judge, my 9-year-old son, may have been a little biased but he definitely knows a good wing when he eats one!!
With the Super Bowl tomorrow, I’m sure you are curious about how you can make these award-winning wings yourself. While I would love to keep this secret to myself, that would just be selfish. So here it is, in all it’s glory!!
The best part about this recipe is you still get that crispy browned skin with out having to fill your house with the smell and mess of a deep fryer!
This time around, I made 13 wings. There was still some left-over seasoning, so if you needed a few more it would be fine. Also, the original recipe called for all purpose flour. My grandma mentioned that rice flour would offer a crispier breading, and who am I to argue?!
Start by rinsing your wings and cutting off that extra little phalange! Then use paper towels to pat the wings dry. Set your oven to 450 degrees while you prep the rest of your ingredients!
For the breading I used:
¼ cup of rice flour
1 tablespoon of baking power
1 teaspoon of garlic powder
1 teaspoon of salt
½ teaspoon of chili powder
½ teaspoon of cayenne pepper
½ teaspoon of black pepper
Mix all your dry ingredients, then coat your chicken wings thoroughly. Place them on a baking sheet with a rack to allow them to bake evenly. Set your timer to 30 minutes. It may be totally unnecessary, but I still flipped mine half way through.
While the wings were baking I mixed Frank’s Red Hot Buffalo Wing sauce, Sweet Baby Ray’s Honey BBQ Wing Sauce, and some minced garlic. I’ll be honest, I didn’t measure any of it. I started with half and half then just added a little more of whatever until I reached the flavor I was after!
Once my wings were finished baking I dished them out to my “non-biased” judges. Eric couldn’t believe that they had been baked. The wings turned out so crispy and juicy the texture was just like restaurant wings. Personally, I felt like I could have added a little extra seasoning to the flour mixture. The wing sauce concoction was definitely the star of the show! I poured a little onto the finished wings and everyone gobbled them up in minutes.
Next time, I think will toss the finished wings in the sauce and then put them under the broiler for a few minutes to make them extra crispy!
If you are looking for the perfect snack for your Super Bowl party I would totally recommend trying these crispy baked wings.
