Basic Wing Recipe

Helene Mulvihill


This is an adaption of Alton Browns wings tutorial video. Hubby and I have changed our cooking method to this one and we have success with wings each and every time no matter what seasonings we use.
The idea here is to steam-cook the wings on the inside first, then bake the skin crispy.
They come out perfect! Juicy meat on the inside but crispy skin on the outside! yummm-o!
**NOTE** This is not my picture, I pulled it off the web, but this is what they look like before you toss them in bbq sauce.

remove wings from fridge, Preheat oven to 425 degrees. brush wings with melted butter (if you chose to use it) sprinkle with salt and pepper and your choice of dry seasonings. I use lemon pepper and hubby likes chicago chicken.
