Butter and Garlic Wings

     I found a great butter and garlic chicken wing recipe.  I will admit wings are one of my favorite apps to cook.  I do enjoy them but I think I love cooking them more.  We have a lot of friends and family that love to eat them so I love showing them new styles and flavors!  This recipe is great because it is oven based so you don't have to take out the fryer.

     One of the best things I love about wings are you can do so much with them.  You can fry them, oven bake them or even use your slow cooker!  You can bread them or leave them naked as they say.  There are also many different glazes you can try or make your own up and share!  However the case maybe always try to cook new kinds and expand your horizon.  Don't get scared to leave your comfort zone.      

Prep Time:  10 Minutes
Cook Time: 30 Minutes
Total Time: 40 Minutes

2 pounds chicken wings
2 tablespoons butter, melted
Pinch of salt and pepper

7 garlic cloves, minced (or 2 table spoons if you have a jar of minced garlic)
5 tablespoons butter
1 tablespoon flour

  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Place the chicken wings in a large mixing bowl, add in the melted butter, salt, and pepper. Mix everything together.  Place the chicken wings on a parchment lined baking sheet. Bake for 15 minutes. After 15 minutes, turn the wings over and bake for another 20 minutes.
  2. While the chicken wings are baking, prepare your glaze by sauteing the minced garlic and butter in a small pan on the stove on low-to-medium-low heat. I did this after flipping the chicken wings the second time. You do not want to burn the garlic, just cook it. Whisk in the flour and allow the glaze to cook for another 5 minutes.
  3. Glaze the chicken wings, turn the oven to broil on high, broil for 4-5 minutes then flip and broil the other side. Serve with your favorite sauce, or enjoy plain!
  4. ***A short cut also*** If you just used minced garlic from a jar you can mix this with the melted butter and save time sauteing.  Also you can cook the last few minutes on broil and crisp the the wings. Flip them over for another few minutes, then toss them in some left over butter garlic sauce then serve.  

Here is the site I found it off.  Great other ideas as well, check it out!

     I hope you enjoy this great app.  Making wings can be very fun and with all the variations it is endless.  I liked this recipe because I got to use my oven this time and the texture was different.  One of the nice things about these wings are the sauce is light and they are easy to bake per they are done in the oven.  If you have any questions or anything to add let me know!
Thank you Chelsea again for this great recipe!

Remember, cooking should be fun!  So have fun doing it!
