Treat Tuesday #75...

Treat Tuesday - 
The Perfect Baked/Grilled Chicken Wings
-Our senior in high school loves wings.  He and his buddy go to Buffalo Wild Wings quite a bit.
-We tried this recipe and a sauce in order to keep him home for a dinner.  

Ingredients and Directions...
*2 lbs chicken wings, cut into 2 pieces with tips removed
*Preheat oven to 450 degrees
*Bring a large pot of half water half chicken broth to boiling. 
*Boil the wings 8-10 minutes and remove to drain on a wire rack. (helps reduce some of the fat allowing for quicker crisping in the oven)
*Season the wings with your favorite DRY seasoning, salt, pepper, garlic powder, onion powder, etc.
*Bake wings on a sheet pan for 30 minutes, then turn wings over and cook the other side for another 10 minutes.
*Remove to a large bowl and toss in your favorite sauce. (see recipes to follow)
*Serve while hot

For all Sauces: Combine all ingredients in a blender and mix until smooth. Pour into a saucepan and bring to a boil, stirring occasionally till slightly thickened. Remove from heat and allow to cool, toss wings until well coated.
