I so wish corporations weren’t so full of stinkin’ greed. “Wings” were pieces of the chicken that used to either be thrown out, or cooked down for stocks and broths. Now they’re very expensive due to their popularity when they became famously appealing little appetizers.
It’s sad, isn’t it?
The prices immediately skyrocketed.
No wonder so many people are raising chickens now for their eggs and meat to feed their families. What else can you do?? I’m considering it myself!
Anyways, on a brighter note, I love them, and so does my hubby. But he’s not into “buffalo” anything. So I try to come up with different ways to prepare them so that we can both enjoy them, and this latest creation was a hit!
All of the flavors of tacos, baked right into the wings!
So, starting with one rather odd ingredient. I wanted the breading to have a little extra boost of chicken flavor, so I decided to try adding a little chicken gravy mix into the flour mixture. It’s a very old, strange bottle that’s been in my cupboard forever. (Does this stuff ever go bad? Ha!) So, it was about time that I found some kind of use for it. And this actually worked really well! *If you don’t happen to have any, don’t worry about it. You can just leave it out if you wish. It won’t hurt anything if you don’t add it.
Now, you may look at the ingredient list, and say, “Uhm, nope. This is going to take too long!” But seriously, it’s just pantry ingredients that I gathered up in 12 seconds flat!
Just whisk them up with a little flour, and whisk up a nice, spicy egg bath, and you’re almost done!
Just toss the kids into the flour and roll them around to get them nice and “dirty”, then into the tub, then back into the flour to dry off, and bake!
You don’t even have to turn them! And just look how beautiful they come out!
Fall-off-the-bone tender, juicy, flavorful, and so silly-easy to make that it’s fun! 😀
Pin this one to your board if you’d like!
We actually had these for a light supper as they were gigantic for wings and drummies, but you could most certainly bake these up for a March Madness party and serve them as appetizers! 😉 *9 of these monsters equaled 2 pounds!
Since this was for going to be for an actual meal, while the chicken was baking, I made up a tasty, cheesy, creamy batch of taco rice to go with!
Coming next! Super Cheesy Taco Rice!
I also made a quickie dipping sauce that was simply divine! This really made for a delicious and fun supper that I’m sure your whole family will enjoy! Or, a cool new twist on traditional wings and drummy appetizers that you and you’re friends are sure to love!
So give these new wings a try soon! I know that they’ll be a hit at your house, too!
*Cheesy Taco Rice recipe coming soon! 😉 *I buy one can of Chipotle Peppers in Adobo Sauce, dump it into the blender and puree it. Pour it into a ziploc freezer baggie and freeze it. Then, when I need some, I just break off the amount needed, thaw it and use! Easy, and goes a long ways!!
