What’s Your Thing Chicken Wing?

I love chicken wings almost as much as I love pizza. I found raw chicken wings on sale at Kroger the other week and so I decided to make our own at home. 

My favorite chicken wings are the garlic Parmesan and chipolte BBQ dust from Buffalo Wild Wings and so I looked up a copycat recipes online. I could only find the garlic parm recipe, so that’s what I went with. I didn’t want to fry the wings to keep somewhat healthy and so I also found a recipe for baked chicken wings that are just as crispy at their fried counterparts. 

They turned out so good!! Almost exactly like BW3s and a little better for you since they were baked 🙂 Though it sounded really weird, the boiling the wings did make them nice and crispy in the oven.

Heat up a big pot of boiling water. Season the water like you would for cooking pasta.
 

Boil the chicken wings for 7-8 minutes, then remove them to a wire rack so the excess water can drain off. 

Let them drip dry a little bit, then dry them well with a paper towel.
 

Season the chicken wings lightly with salt (though if you salted the boiling water enough, it won’t need much, if any). Place the chicken wings directly on a sheet pan. Bake the chicken wings for 30 minutes on one side, then flip the wings and bake for another 10 minutes on the other side.

Combine the rest of the ingredients in a big bowl, add the cooked chicken wings and coat well. Serve immediately.
