If you've been reading my blog, you've probably figured out that I don't eat too much meat. My weaknesses aren't high quality cuts, but bacon and chicken wings. Today, in the spirit of the playoffs, I made chicken wings with my boyfriend and his roommate Aaron. We made two kinds--buffalo and garlic parmesan. First, we cut up the wings, removing the tips.
Then, we made the two sauces. For the buffalo sauce, we sauteed ginger, garlic, butter, and scallions in a pot. Then we added hot sauce and let it cook for a couple minutes. For the garlic parmesan wings, we melted a stick of butter in a pan and added some garlic powder and onion salt. We preheated the oven to 450 and then covered the wings in their respective sauces. Before putting them in the oven to break, we sprinkled (liberally) parmesan cheese on the garlic parmesan wings.
Bake the wings until they are done to your liking--shorter if you like them juicy, longer if you like them crispy.
The final step is to enjoy! Make sure you have plenty of ranch or water on hand for the buffalo wings. After eating, I recommend a nice nap on the couch before the football game starts. :-)
