INSTRUCTIONS

  • Pat dry chicken wings. If desired, cut wings into wingettes and drumette pieces. Add wings in a large bowl. Season wings liberally with salt and pepper. Set aside.

 

FOR BAKING THE CHICKEN WINGS

  • Pre-heat oven to 425°F. Line a baking sheet pan with parchment paper.

  • Lightly coat chicken wings with the vegetable oil. Spread chicken wings on baking sheet pan.

  • Bake for about 50 minutes, or until golden and cooked through.

FOR FRYING THE CHICKEN WINGS

  • Season with additional salt and pepper to taste.

  • In bowl, combine flour and cornstarch. Coat chicken wings with flour mixture.

  • Heat oil about 1” deep in large skillet to 350-375° F.

  • Gently place wings in hot oil in batches so they don’t crowd each other and stick together. Fry wings on both sides until golden brown and cooked through, about 3-5 minutes per side.

  • Remove chicken wings from oil and season with additional salt and pepper to taste.

 

MAKE THE SPICY GARLIC SAUCE

  • In medium sauce pan melt the butter, then add minced garlic. Cook garlic until fragrant and lightly browned, but not burnt.

  • Add brown sugar, soy sauce, salt, smoked paprika and hot sauce to the sauce mixture. Cook for about 2 minutes or until sauce is combined well. Remove from heat.

  • When wings are cooked, add them to large bowl and toss with the spicy garlic sauce. Coat all wings evenly with sauce.

  • Serve warm, with sides of celery sticks, carrot sticks or blue cheese dip.
