Hot Wings… I’m still drooling over these!

Last Monday I made Lemon Pepper Chicken Wings. Today, I was in the mood for spicy.  So, what’s better than hot wings? Not much!

So last time when i made the wings I learned a lesson. line the bottom tray with foil, so you have a bit less scrubbing to do when its time for clean up.

Otherwise…

– Toss the chicken onto a wire rack over a lined baking sheet, and toss into a pre heated oven ( 400 degrees F)

– Cook for 20 minutes, turn over and cook another twenty minutes

– in the meantime.. melt a two tablespoons of butter and mix with about a 1/3 cup of franks red hot. ( all depending on how many wings your making… i made 20 with this)

– Once the wings are cooked toss them in the sauce, grab a drink a bunch of napkins and chow down!

NOMNOMNOM

These were seriously the easiest and best wings I’ve had in a long time. Why would I want to go out, and spend 20 bucks for this… when I can eat it in the comfort of my own home, for a fraction of the cost, but so much tastier?! I wish I had made more! seriously, they are all I can think about! im just staring at the photo below… and still drooling…

Lemon Pepper Chicken Wings

I wanted wings a few days ago, but with life being busy I didn’t have time until today to make them. When i went online to find a recipe, I just couldn’t find one that suited me.  so i did the only logical thing…

I made it up as i went along.

 

I don’t have exact measurements, only estimations because i didn’t measure anything in the making of these wings.

Heat oven to 400

Place chicken wings on a wire rack over top a baking sheet to catch the drippings.

place in oven and cook for 15 minutes, turn and cook another ten minutes.

In the meantime, in a bowl mix the following – pepper, half a lemons worth of juice, some lemon zest just for kicks, and a few tablespoons of melted butter( or your alternative if you aren’t lacto paleo). Mix it all up!

brush it all over your mostly cooked wings and cook for another 5 minutes, turn and brush on the mixture to the other side of the wings and let cook for a few more minutes.

Your wings should be done!

 

Now if you read my other post, you would know that I feel pretty crappy today, so i only had a few of the wings. They were good. Darcy however ate most of them, and he just kept going on and on about how juicy and tasty they are. He kept asking me if I could make them again exactly the same. So I think i did a good job on these.  WooHoo!

So here is a picture of the wings, I didn’t take more, but really, who wants to look at pictures of raw chicken… the finished product is where its at!
