Garlic Chicken Wings with Bleu Cheese Dressing
A “Messy” Recipe
Contributed by Samantha Lawhon
Makes 8 servings
1-5 pound bag of plain frozen chicken wing pieces thawed (you can also use 5 pounds of fresh chicken wing pieces)
1/4 cup cooking oil
3 minced garlic cloves
1/2 cup of your favorite pepper/chili sauce. I recommend Pepperplant’s Original California Style Hot Pepper Sauce
1/2 cube of butter
1. Preheat oven at 350°f.
2. Rinse the thawed chicken wings and pat dry. Place pieces in a single layer on a greased baking sheet and sprinkle wings with garlic powder. Bake for 10-15 minutes; turn and bake for another 10-15 minutes. (Cooking time varies depending on the size of the pieces.) Remove from the oven.
3. In a sauce pan combine minced garlic, your favorite pepper sauce, and butter. Heat until all the ingredients are combined and set aside.
4. In a large skillet, heat 1/4 cup cooking oil. Place as many of the baked chicken wings in the heated pan and cook for 5 minutes on each side. Then place all the pieces in a large bowl and toss with the wing sauce and serve with bleu cheese or ranch dressing.
Tip ** I like to place the prepared wings in the crock pot on LOW/WARM to keep them hot!
