Game Day Snacks: Chicken Wings Two Ways

Sweet N Spicy Asian Chicken Wings

  1. Yield: 2 dozen wings

It seems we are in the final month of American Football season, concluding with the SuperBowl in a few weeks. Confession: I know absolutely nothing about football, and I am just fine with that. But I do love traditional Sunday football “fare,” and so for the next few weeks I’ll be providing my husband’s favorite recipes that go along with good game watching

Up first: my fried chicken wings, two ways.

If you don’t have a proper deep fryer, of course you can bake the chicken wings before saucing them. You can also fill a large pot with oil and use that for frying.

Traditional-Style Hot Wings

  • vegetable oil for frying
  • 2 dozen chicken wings
  • 3/4 cup pareve margarine or butter flavored shortening
  • 3/4 hot sauce of your choice
  • 1 Tbsp salt
  • 1/2 Tbsp black pepper
  • celery sticks for garnish

Rinse chicken wings in cold water, and pat dry thoroughly.

In a deep fryer or large pot, heat oil to 375 degrees. Fry wings in oil for approximately 12-15 minutes, until just crispy.

Meanwhile, heat margarine and hot sauce in a saucepan on medium heat. Whisk until heated through and smooth. Pour sauce into a large mixing bowl, add salt and pepper.

When wings are done, add wings to large bowl and toss to sauce. Add celery sticks for garnish, and serve.
