Chicken Wings

So we’ve been on a roll this week! First we churned out the asparagus soup, then we made the spanish tortilla and now we’re making baked wings. So we’ve been trying to eat healthier and we’re finally making quite a bit of progress so I decided to share one of my wife’s favorite meals: wings. You can buy a tray of them at the supermarket and since the oven does all the work, you can make as many as you like! First step is to mix the wings with some olive oil, paprika, cumin, salt and pepper. Mix them around so they get evenly coated.

Next put on a rack, I do this so the fat drips below and the wings aren’t stoking it in. This makes them crisper, and healthier. Make sure they’re evenly spaced so the steam doesn’t cook them and make them soggy.

Leave them in the oven at 350 for 30 minutes just doing their own thing. After that you’ll see tht they begin to get s little color in them. My wife likes them BBQ but I prefer buffalo so at this point I take half the wings and toss them in BBQ sauce. I put all the wings back I for 10 minutes. That way the BBQ sauce caremelizes and the buffalo wings get a little toastier.

During that last 10 minute stint I cut up some carrots, celery and cucumber into sticks to go with the wings.

After 10 minutes I take out the wings, serve the BBQ ones into a bowl, toss the rest in my buffalo sauce and serve!

And that’s all there is to it! It’s healthier, tasty, and fun!
