Chicken Wings Round One

Chicken WingsMy memory does not serve me well as I thought I had posted my chicken wing recipe, however, I think that I posted the recipe in my cookbook. With that said, I should note that my cookbook rocks and will soon be available to purchase online. 🙂


  • Wings, cleaned and clipped
  • Seasonings to your liking
  • Cooking Oil (canola or vegetable)
  • Frank’s hot sauce to your liking
  • Cold beer

The chicken wing. Bake, fried, grilled, it simply is a beautiful thing. I typically marinade mine for a day or so, then slow cook for a couple of hours, then grill. As I stated, it is a beautiful thing, or process, I might add. Lately I attempted a technique that is new to me. As I normally clean my wings, I never clip them. This time around I used a kitchen scissors and cut the wings. Basically I cut the drumstick from the wing, then clipped the end of the wing. I was a bit sad as the tip of the wing is my favorite part, seriously. 🙂

Once cleaned and clipped, I seasoned them with good stuff. If you do not know what the good stuff is, then you need to figure it out. The good stuff is what seasonings you like on your food. This can be anything so have fun with it. Be creative. Sweet, spicy, sassy. The triple s.

Once seasoned, throw them in a bag, and let them get happy. Keep in the happy bag for 24 hours if you can. Once you are ready to go, take them out of a bag and remove the moisture from them by setting them on a wire rack for 30 minutes or so, or place on paper towel for a few minutes. In the meantime, heat your oil. Cook in batches for nearly 18 minutes. Remove with a slotted spoon, place in a bowl and toss with Frank’s Red Hot Sauce. That’s right I said it. Not my sauce, but Frank’s. I was never a fan until lately. Truly a great wing.

Looking for a great blue cheese sauce to go with this wing? Stay tuned, as mine seriously will blow your socks off. Remember, it’s all good, whether it’s mine or Frank’s sauce..

Thank you for visiting my website. Truly, I do appreciate it. My free time and stress reliever is cooking for my family, friends, and everyone in between. The recipes you find on this site are those that I have either created, been part of, or those that I simply enjoy and have made my own in some shape, form, or other. My focus has always been on comfort food, because at the end of a long work day, you want something comforting. I currently am the father of three children, and married to a wonderful wife of thirteen years. There is nothing fancy with these recipes, just simple, and I will admit, not so simple ingredients, and a simple kitchen corner I can call my own. I learned early on that cooking and bringing family together was very important. After all, this notion of being together at dinner time was instilled early on by my parents. There are many memories of being in the kitchen with my parents, watching them cook, or preparing meals, or those home cooked smells while waiting for dinner. My parents who worked full-time, always had home cooked meals during the week, with the exception of Friday nights where we would enjoy a Wisconsin fish fry, and often on late afternoons on Sunday, where we would order Ann's pizza. I tend to cook by making things up. As a home cook, I think you have to take chances, and add or subtract ingredients that make up a dish, and make them your own. Remember to taste, and taste often. If a dish has potential, try it again, and make it your own. You should also note that I do not count calories, or break down recipes into grams of anything. To me, that's a bit boring. My philosophy is that if the food is good, eat it, and eat it in moderation. Life is just too short not to enjoy good food.
