Winging It

Day 165.

The Hubs got a nummy lunch yesterday. See, it's low carbing right now, so most of his meals are Hunk O' Meat and Raw Salad Vegetables or Egg with or without Meat, Cheese, and Veggies. BORING.

I surprised him with some chicken wings yesterday for lunch. They were really easy to make, low-cost, low-carb, and he loved them.

Chicken Wings
Amounts shown are for 18 wings

What You Need:
  • chicken wings (rinsed and patted dry)
  • oil for deep frying
  • 1/2 cup hot sauce
  • 1/2 cup butter
How it's Done:
  1. This is so easy if you have a deep fryer. We just happened to score one for cheap at a yard sale a few weeks ago. Heat the oil to 375 degrees.
  2. Cook wings for 14 minutes or until cooked through. They will be nice and crispy.
  3. While the wings are cooking, combine melted butter and hot sauce in a large bowl.
  4. As the wings finish cooking, drop them into the sauce. Stir them around in the sauce so that they get coated nicely.
  5. Serve right away with blue cheese dressing and celery.
Aren't those little dishes cute? They're from Pier One. I found the whole set at a thrift shop for $9.00 :)

I have a healthy respect for deep frying and no small amount of fear I'll spill hot oil all over myself.

Me, too.

That's why I love my deep fryer. It has a lid, so that you close the lid before you lower the food into the oil, thereby eliminating person-oil contact.

I still fret about the potential of knocking the thing over or some other unlikely calamity.

My hubby and son would love these. Thanks for sharing the recipe. I rarely deep fry but maybe I could work up the nerve to try it on these. :)
About the Zevia, Hubby, son, and I didn't think it had a bitter aftertaste but the girls did. Maybe it's because I am used to eating diet products all the time.

Oh how I love me some chicken wings!!! mmmmmmm....Every time I make wings I bake them just because of the health factor, but man, my deep fryer is looking kind of lonely right now!!! :)

This is one recipe I won't be making, but the photo of your husband chowing down in pretty cute.

I've decided since I have a total blog crush on you, that you I need to start reading your blog from the beginning. I'm going to get going on that starting tomorrow,

*NEW!* Stay current on what's cooking!
