It's A Wing Thing

Updated on August 13, 2017

Chicken Wings For the Soul


Super bowl is just around the corner and nothing goes better with football than some beer and some chicken wings. I have attempted to put a bit of a new twist on how to prepare and cook some wings for Super bowl Sunday. Since tailgating has become popular with football, this recipe should be a great way to hang out, drink some beer, and cook some kickin’ chicken wings. I think chicken wings are some the best foods to experiment with. From using sauces in many different styles, or using your dry rubs. Chicken wings are always a big hit. I feel that this recipe could be a big hit for you and your gang when you give these a try.


First off we will marinate the wings. Now, being from Louisiana we like our wings on the spicy side, so this recipe may be hotter for some than others. I marinade the chicken wings for at least twenty four hours. This time, I used a bit of a different recipe than I normally do when I marinade chicken wings. Another trick is to make sure to poke holes into the wings and the drums. This way the marinade can seep into the meat and make a juicier wings loaded with flavor.


The Marinade:


Take a gallon sized Ziploc bag or two if needed, and prepare the marinade first. This time I added lemon juice, minced garlic, teriyaki sauce, some good ole Tabasco sauce and some Balsamic vinegar. Now, I don’t measure these ingredients, so add as much or as little as you want. Mix it all up in the bag and I like to let it sit for at least thirty minutes so the flavors come together before I add the chicken into the bags. Add the raw chicken wings to the bag, but before so, poke a few holes in each wing with a fork. This way the marinade can get into the meat of the wing and have a universal marinade taste throughout the whole wing. Put wings in fridge and flip bag every few hours. Also, before grilling take the wings out and let them come to room temperature. You want the wing to be at room temperature so that the skin and outside don't cook the quickest and leaving the meat near the bone raw and cold.


Wing Sauce:


Not only are the wings going to be full of flavor on the inside, we are going to add some spice and flavor to the outside of the wings. I mean the messier the wings, the better they are right? So, in a frying pan or skillet melt about a stick of butter (Paula Dean style) and add the new buffalo style Tabasco sauce along with some minced garlic and some fresh herbs and spices. Blend all together and let sauce come to a boil and then turn down to simmer. Once you have grilled the wings to perfection, toss the wings a few at a time in the buffalo sauce. After that, get a roll of paper towels, water or a few beers and enjoy the wings with good company and a great football game.

      Fullerman.....Hey!! I'll have you know I'm a native Western New Yorker....30 miles from "BUFFALO"!! Yes, that's right....where the Buffalo chicken wing was born, nurtured and spread thoughout the world. "Frank & Theresa's Anchor Bar"....on Elmwood Ave. The ORIGINAL wing makers.

      Your recipe sounds good. It is not true that Buffalo have no wings.....trust me, WE DO!!!!
