Poultry Essentials: Late Night/Early Morning Wings

 Poultry Essentials: Late Night/Early Morning Wings


Enjoy wings anytime with Late Night/Early Morning Wings. Perfect for a snack that satisfies your craving.. Worked last evening/morning in the kitchen perfecting my Mexican dishes. About 1:00a I thought to myself: “I think I want a mess of chicken wings.” You probably do that too, yes? Anyway, the test kitchen was littered with stuff for my Mexican recipes, so I wanted something that would be easy to make, not be too messy, and be tasty. I opened the walk-in, picked up a vacuum-sealed package of frozen wings, and this is what I came up with. Olive oil makes them crispy, spices give them flavor, and 2-heat baking, keeps the insides juicy. So, you ready… Let’s get into the kitchen.

Poultry Essentials: Late Night/Early Morning Wings



Cook time: 35 Min  Prep time: 5 Min  Serves: 1
Ingredients
6 whole chicken wings
THE SPICES
2 Tbsp olive oil, extra-virgin variety
1 tsp ancho chili powder, or chili powder of choice
1/2 tsp ground cumin
OPTIONAL DIPPING SAUCE
2 Tbsp mayonnaise, plain variety, i prefer duke’s
2 Tbsp sour cream
1 Tbsp lime juice, freshly squeezed
1 - 2 dash hot sauce, i prefer frank’s
salt, kosher variety, to taste
black pepper, freshly ground, to taste
Directions
1. PREP/PREPARE
2. You will need a parchment-lined, rimmed baking sheet to make this recipe. If you have a wire rack for your baking sheet that would be outstanding, but it is not necessary.
3. Chicken Wings A whole wing is composed of three parts: The drumette, the flat or wingette, and the tip. Separate the drumette from the flat, then freeze and save the tips for flavoring soups and stocks. With six wings that will give you twelve separate pieces.
4. Gather your ingredients (mise en place).
5. Add the oil and spices to a bowl, then whisk to combine.
6. Completely dry off the wings, then place into the bowl and toss to coat.
7. Add the wings to your baking sheet.
8. If you are not using a wire rack, you will want to turn the wings over, halfway through the baking process. If you are using a rack, this will not be necessary.
9. Place a rack in the middle position and preheat the oven to 425f/220c.
10. Add the wings to the preheated oven and bake for 20 minutes.
11. Lower the heat to 350f/175c, then bake until the wings are crispy and beginning to brown, about another 12 – 15 minutes.
12. OPTIONAL DIPPING SAUCE
13. If you are making it, simply whisk all the ingredient together in a bowl, and taste for proper seasoning.
14. PLATE/PRESENT
15. Serve with the dipping sauce and tuck in. Enjoy.
16. Keep the faith, and keep cooking.
