I have to be the biggest goofball every known to grace this earth! I made up a song titled, “It Ain’t Nothing But A Chicken Wang!” I proceeded to sing this song as I made my chicken wings, ahhh. Entertaining. I won’t bore you with the words but I will tell you that it could be a Grammy nominated song if I ever chose to pursue a career in music. Too bad I love cooking instead. 😉
Apple pie, pizza, hamburgers and chicken wings- that is what we Americans are known for. Just like the previously mentioned foods, everyone has a recipe for chicken wings and claims that theirs is the best. Sorry guys, mine really is!
I prefer my chicken wings naked, in the sense that they are not breaded but I find that the majority of people love a breaded wing. Also, I like my wings baked, I know- how crazy. Give this recipe a try, it is pretty good and the skin on the outside becomes pretty crunchy. The sauce is amazing, a classic blue cheese sauce that only adds to the flavor.
6 tablespoons peanut oil or canola oil
¼ cup rice flour (feel free to omit to make it a low-carb recipe)
2 teaspoons paprika
1 teaspoon cayenne pepper
1 teaspoon cumin
1 teaspoon garlic powder
1 teaspoon salt
4-5lbs chicken wings or drumsticks
Blue Cheese Dipping Sauce Ingredients
¼ cup plain Greek yogurt

In a large bowl combine the rice flour with the remaining ingredients.
