Once again, this post is pretty late, but I’ve been working on my house and it has been very distracting. I tried this recipe on Saturday and I have to say, the wings this time were AWESOME!
So, since the beginning of this experiment, my wife has been saying that I need to make boneless wings instead of traditional. Boneless wings are actually made from chicken breast cut into pieces, breaded and then deep fried. So they aren’t really wings, but whatever, they tasted amazing! I’ll probably make more of the traditional style again, but I think for the next several batches at least, I’ll be making these boneless wings.
The wings on Saturday had some real kick to them, and the molasses gave them a nice sweet flavor. I didn’t really think the garlic came through very strong, though, so I’ll definitely need more of that. Perhaps using minced garlic instead of powder. The molasses was actually surprising. I had been looking for something to use other than butter that would add flavor and really stick to the wings. I knew molasses would stick but I wasn’t sure about the flavor, so I had mixed up a small batch of the sauce several days prior. It tasted all right on its own, but as I already have stated, it was really tasty on the wings.
Anyway, I could go on and on talking about how these wings taste, but you won’t really know unless you make them yourself and try them. I think they are pretty great but I’m not sure they are the world’s greatest just yet. Make them yourself and tell me what you think. Here is the recipe for the sauce, to make it just mix everything together into a small bowl:
- 1/3 cup Frank’s Red Hot Sauce
- 1/3 Blackstrap Molasses
- 2 tbsp vinegar
- 1 tbsp garlic powder
The wings themselves were made by first cutting up whole boneless skinless chicken breasts into smaller bite sized pieces. Each piece was dipped into a mixture of 1 egg and 1 cup of milk. The egg and milk coated chicken pieces were then rolled in flour until they were completely coated. The chicken pieces were then deep fried for 6 minutes in vegetable oil. After deep frying, the wings were coated in my wing sauce and then baked in the oven for another 20 minutes. Enjoy! Feel free to post any comments and suggestions.
