Chicken Wings – Eric’s favorite!

There are 2 types of wings in this household.  Wings everyone loves and the wings Eric loves.  This recipe is from America’s Test Kitchen.  I make a couple of changes in the baking of them.  They come out perfectly Simple and Delicious!! Here is the recipe…Eric 🙂

Chicken Wings

(When I have a picture I will post.)

3          pounds chicken wings, halved at joint and wingtips removed, trimmed (or go to Costco and buy 10# bag for $20.  That’s all done for you!)
1          tablespoon baking powder
1/2      teaspoon salt
2/3      cup Frank’s Red Hot Original Cayenne Pepper Sauce
1          tablespoon unsalted butter, melted
1          tablespoon molasses

1. Adjust oven rack to middle position and heat oven to 475 degrees. Line rimmed baking sheet with aluminum foil (I put parchment on top of the aluminum foil, too) and top with wire rack (I don’t top with a wire rack, pain to clean.). Pat wings dry with paper towels, then toss with baking powder and salt in bowl. Arrange wings in single layer on wire rack. Roast wings until golden on both sides, about 40 minutes, flipping wings over and rotating sheet halfway through roasting.

2. Meanwhile, whisk hot sauce, butter, and molasses together in large bowl.

3. Remove wings from oven. Adjust oven rack 6 inches from broiler element and heat broiler. Broil wings until golden brown on both sides, 6 to 8 minutes, flipping wings over halfway through broiling. Add wings to sauce and toss to coat. Serve and invite Eric over!!

  1. Mmmmmm, molasses………

    We’re all about Caribbean wings in our house. Fried, not baked and naked, never breaded. I use molasses in my sauce, too!
