There are a few things I love about the Fall: the changing of the leaves, the crisp air, Football, and Wings! Don’t get me wrong, you can pretty much eat wings whenever you feel like it during the year, but there is something about your favorite football or college football team (Go Dawgs! #FreeGurley), a frothy beverage, and some party wings!
I’ve been experimenting with different flavor of wings lately. I’ve tried orange sesame, sweet and sour, different styles of barbecue, buffalo, lemon pepper, and garlic wings. Below are three of my absolute favorite flavors, but of course get inspired and create your own!
Salt and Pepper
Parsley Flakes (because “This muthafuckah make any muthafuckin thang taste good…” –Aunt Fee)
Jack Daniels Honey Barbecue sauce
Lemon Pepper seasoning
Louisiana buffalo wing sauce + Ranch dressing
Preparing the wings
About a day or so prior to when you want to eat the wings, take the wings out of the freezer or fresh from the bag put them in a large bowl. Add Worcestershire sauce, garlic and onion powder, paprika, salt, pepper, and parsley flakes and coat well ensuring all pieces of chicken are covered with spices.
At this point, you can either put the wings and bowl into the fridge to marinate for at least a day or prepare to cook.
Pre-heat oven to 350°.
In a large frying pan, add a half cup of vegetable oil on medium to high heat.
Flash fly all wings until they are just about cooked.
Separate wings into equal parts into three separate bowls, with lids.
In one bowl, add about a cup and a half of barbecue sauce. Cover with lid and shake to completely coat wings in sauce.
In the second bowl, add equal parts Louisiana buffalo sauce and ranch. Cover with lid and shake to completely coat wings in sauce.
In last bowl, add 2 tablespoons of olive oil and 4 tablespoons of lemon pepper seasoning. Sprinkle seasoning all over wings to coat. Cover with lid and shake to completely coat wings in seasoning.
Add each type of wing to a pan and put into oven for about 20-25 minutes. Add barbecue wings and buffalo wings back into separate bowls and coat with sauces again to make them extra saucy. Optional, sprinkle extra Lemon Pepper seasoning on lemon pepper wings for added flavor.
Eat and Enjoy!
