It's ridiculous, really, because this is what I SHOULD BE EATING!!!!!
But today, in honor of all those high schoolers doing double sessions for football season, and the upcoming NFL season, I bring you CHICKEN WINGS.
These are easy. And they're $8.99 for a dozen at our local pizza places, so this is a Must Make at Home dish!
I bought the ginormous bag of frozen, separated wings at Sam's Club. Here's the basic idea:
Remove a dozen wing pieces from bag.
Rinse under warm water just to get rid of ice glaze (it makes the oil spit too much)
Pat dry with paper towels, or your good hand towel and then use it to dry dishes.
(I'm kidding, for pity's sake. Of course you don't want Salmonella dishes! Silly you!)
Coat each piece with flour, seasoned with salt and pepper. (Like Southern Fried Chicken!!!!)
Fry at 375 degrees until dark golden brown and C-R-I-S-P-Y. I used the deep fryer, but you can pan fry it like you do for fried chicken or pan fish... Put about 1 inches of oil in a deep frying pan, heat and put wings in carefully.... and turn as needed.
Drain on paper towels.
Toss with favorite sauce. We use a pan with a cover to "coat" them....
Throw the wings into the 2 or 3 quart sauce pan, add the sauce, cover and shake! Then serve!!!
We love "Country Sweet" sauce, it's got tang and sweetness, a perfect combo!!!!
Serve and enjoy!
Busy times here on the farm, and here at the desk! I'm loving how blessed we are to have everyone healthy and happy... for the moment!
Life is full of plastic pools and boats, speed racing on garage sale bikes in my driveway and a new chicken watering system that appears to be working!
Note the fancy CONCRETE block supports, LOL!
SWEET!!!! Happy hens lay happy eggs.
And bread for the farm stand:
And a cute kid!!!
And country kids, lovin' on the pick up truck:
Yup, we've got it workin'!
