Simple Chicken Wing Preparation

Just broke down a chicken for the first time yesterday (and almost lost a finger doing it) and my wife won't be around for dinner tonight so I wanted to cook up the wings as part of my dinner.

So what is your guys ideas on a simple preparation for them? Also I am not a fan of spicy foods but other than that I would love to hear your thoughts.

You could easily pan fry or bake them.

Pan, skillet, pot..anything (almost) that will hold a little oil. Don't cook them to fast (hot) they will be get too brown on the outside before they are done on the inside.

Enjoy....

I think I will try MostlyWater's suggestion tonight. For baking, 350 degrees a good temp.

I always grill or bake my chicken wings & they always turn out great. I arrange them on a broiler pan & top with whatever dry seasonings I want. I then bake them at 425 degrees (450 if they're particularly large), for 15 minutes, then drop the oven temp down to 375 for another 15 minutes of cooking. I then remove the broiler pan, flip the wings over & season the 2nd side, & put them back into that 375 oven for 15 minutes. For the final 15 minutes I crank the oven back up to 425 (or 450). Wings are cooked thru but still juicy & have a crisp skin.

At this point I toss the wings in whatever sauce I've planned - hot buffalo, Asian, Garlic/Anchovy Butter, etc., etc. Or you can just enjoy them as is with your favorite dipping sauce.

Regardless of how you plan to enjoy them, I'd definitely bake them at a higher them than 350 degrees. While 350 will definitely cook them, you won't get a crisp skin - they'll be sort of pale & flabby.

I just brush them with butter, then add salt and pepper and maybe a little granulated garlic and into a 375 degree oven for about 40 to 50 minutes. I like the skin to be crispy.

This really isn't hard to make

This is the closest I've ever come to what I have in Chinese resturants and I have to say my family loves it when I make it. It started out as a Sweet & Sour Chicken Recipe from JMediger......this recipe is really good but one day I thought I'd try to get a spicy flavor out of it........and sure enough I accomplished it. The sauce is red too! Hope this helps and is to your liking. As with most all recipes you'll need to adjust to your taste....add a little more of what ever ingredient you think it needs. Hope this helps!

SWEET & SOUR WINGS or THIGHS

Original Recipe from JMediger

Dip in egg - then flour
Brown on each side
Place in single layer in greased baking dish

SAUCE....
3/4 Cup Sugar
1/4 Cup Pineapple Juice
1/4 Cup White Vinegar
3/4 Cup Ketchup
1 tsp Soy Sauce
1 1/2 tsp salt

Combine all in sauce pan and bring to soft boil.
Spread over chicken wings and top with crushed pineapple if you like.....NOTE: I don't top mine with the pineapple.
Cover and bake for 40 - 45 min. @ 350. NOTE: You'll have to turn these 1/2 way through.

I usually let the chicken wings set after I dip them while I do the sauce. The batter seems to stay better when I brown them.

Doubled, this will cover about 3 lbs of wings that have been halved (wing and "drummie" separated) so I would think the single recipe would cover your 6 thighs (about 1 lb?).

NOTE: I taste the sauce and then add a little more of this and that to get it to my taste.
To make this spicy like General Tso's...............I added red chilis to the sauce along with some scallions but since you don't like spicy I don't recommend this.
You can just use pieces of chicken breasts and adjust the time accordingly.
Also...after the first couple of times making these instead of the original order to bake I switched to frying these.....I prefer them better this way.
