Winning Wings

Winning wings are just the thing for a half time snack while waiting for the real food to appear. There are a whole ranch of dipping sauces that go with wings, but with my wings, I prefer a simple ranch dressing.

Here’s what you’ll need:

  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1 cup cornmeal
  • 1/4 cup Sea Salt
  • 1/4 cup ground cayenne pepper
  • 1/4 cup paprika
  • A dash or two of any crazy named hot sauce you may have on hand. I use PETA (People for the Eating of Tasty Animals) sauce
  • 2 cups milk
  • 18 whole chicken wings
  • 1 bottle Smart Balance(R) “Buttery Burst” spray

Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Trim the ends off the wings and keep these in a plastic container, they are good for making stock. Then separate the lower wing (drumlette) from the mid-wing. Mix first 5 ingredients in gallon-size resealable plastic bag.

In a shallow bowl pour the milk and give it a dash or two of hot sauce. Dip the wings in this mixture and place them, two at a time in the bag and shake till evenly coated. Lightly shake off excess and arrange wings on 2 baking trays. Bake in the preheated oven for 30 minutes. Turn wings and bake for an additional 30 minutes or until crispy-brown.

These wings go well with a Blue Point brewery Toasted Lager… you knew there was going to be a local Long Island twist here somewhere.
