Game Day WINGS
A few years back Buffalo Wild Wings opened its doors here in Algonquin. At that time my son was playing football and all of a sudden it was the PLACE to be. Who knew a chicken wing would be the start of male football bonding.
The excitement would be 10 cent wing night when the kids would all want to go “just with friends”. By that time they were driving and it was fine with me.
I toyed around with creating my own wings so that they could watch Bears football at home. The food panacea of the suburbs, Costco, had 10 pound bags of frozen wings that weren’t coated. My family loves them HOT, me, not so much.
For Sundays I’d make wings and the friends would come and hang out in the basement watching the games. It was one of those memories that would continue when they’d come home from college. One practice day I made 20 pounds of wings and brought them to football practice. The coaches reserved the remains in their office.
Game Day Wings
- 10 pounds frozen plain chicken wings
- Chef Paul Prudhomme’s Poultry Magic Seasonings
- KC Original Barbeque Sauce
- Louisiana Hot Sauce
Preheat the oven to 350.
Cover 2 sheet roasting pans with heavy duty foil. Lay the wings in single file on the covered pan. Sprinkle the seasonings generously over the frozen wings. Place in the oven for 35 minutes.
In the meantime in a small bowl pour 1 cup of the KC BBQ Sauce into the bowl. Add the Louisiana sauce to taste. Using a whisk combine the sauces.
After the 35 minutes are up turn the wings over and coat lightly with the Prudhomme seasonings. Roast another 10 minutes.
Coat the wings with the BBQ sauce after the 10 minutes are up and place in the oven for 5 to 8 minutes.
Serve the remaining sauce (or make more) with your wings. BTW, did I say how wonderful it smells in here when they’re roasting? Use lots of napkins!
