And these bad boys happened.
These wings were baked, not fried and quickly became the "Can't wait for sides" wings as they were done before I could finish making macaroni salad and really didn't need it anymore. They were gooood!!!
This simple recipe I found from Ice over at FoolProofLiving. She, in her wisdom, figured out that using baking powder can get wings to that crispy fried consistency when baked. Heaven!!!!
I had to adjust the recipe a bit because I had way less wings than she used. I had 4 large wings that I cut into halves. I soaked them out in some water, vinegar and chilli powder (I add chilli powder to everything for no reason). After about 10 mins I pat dry the wings as dry as possible and added them to a bowl. In the bowl I sprinkled a tablespoon of baking powder (I think I would use 3/4 next time with the amount of wings I had) and a few shakes of salt. (Not too much). I then ensured that the wings were properly coated in this "mixture". Oven at 250 degrees, I baked for 30 mins on the low rack. Then upped to 450 on a higher rack for 45 mins. When that was done I took them out and cooled for about 5 mins and tossed in a bowl of sweet baby ray's BBQ sauce and some honey. You can use whatever sauce you like.
And it was AMAZING!!!
