Tried and True Recipe #3: Buffalo Wings

Long time no cook? To my defense, I have been cooking, but I haven’t been showcasing any recipes. Have no fear, my next two blog posts are all things food, and today I have an exciting recipe for you all.

Buffalo wings.

Oh how I love the pairing of spicy and cool by the illustrious buffalo and ranch.

The one reason why I couldn’t imagine a life without meat.

But enough skedaddling. Let’s get into it.

This recipe is all about preference. If you want to kick up the heat, add a little more hot. If you prefer a milder flavor, add more of the supplemental spices. The choice is yours.

I used a four pound pack of chicken for this recipe, but you could always halve it if you don’t want as much. Start off with less flour than you think. You can always add more. I never can really tell when it comes to coating chicken. So using about 3/4 a cup to one cup of flour should be good to start off with.

I normally only have to add a little bit extra in the end. Add Ms. Dash original seasoning, lemon pepper, garlic powder, onion powder, chili powder, cayenne pepper and crushed red pepper flakes as well as the flour into a plastic bag. I used around a tablespoon to two tablespoons for each seasoning, adding a little extra here and there as needed. Shake it up.

Put the wings on a heavily greased pan with aluminum foil (do not skip the grease because these wings like to stick), and they’re ready to pop in the oven at 400 degrees Fahrenheit for 40ish minutes on each side. One side always takes less than the other. Just keep an eye on it.

Once the wings are done and looking crisp and divine, combine about a tablespoon of butter with a good heaping of hot sauce (this is all based on preference ladies and gentleman).

Toss and serve to enjoy with family and friends (or by yourself — I won’t judge).

Ingredients:
