SuperBowl is fast approaching and man am I sad that football season is coming to an end. I absolutely love it and cant get enough. To wrap the season up, why not make some crispy chicken wings. It’s not often that I have wings and I usually bake them or air-fry them so I thought why not go all out with breaded and fried. Cheat meal haha!

These wings are super easy to make, it’s just a quick dry rub, if you don’t have all the spices listed, use what you have and typically cook with. Whatever works well together, toss them in the mix, I like doing so by placing the wings in a big  bowl and using my hands to gently toss them around until their all coated. The next thing I do is pour the buttermilk overtop until their all covered and cover it with some plastic wrap. I do the wings soaking overnight which keeps the chicken extra moist. By soaking them, into a brine-like bath it helps to dissolve some of the proteins and loosens the muscles which helps retain moisture when cooking.

FRYING

If you don’t have a nice big fryer at home, and like me use a big Dutch oven it’s a little bit of work to stand over the pot and watch the wings as they cook. But hey this is what we signed up for. The longest and hardest part about making these wings. Of course if your baking or air-frying in the oven, don’t forget the drip tray for the juices. I made 30 wings and cooked 6 at time for 7 minutes each so it took some time. But they can definitely be re-heated if making ahead as an appetizer. They hold really well once cooked simply throw them in the oven at 350 degrees F for about 10 minutes until warmed through.

HOT HONEY SAUCE

This is a very simple quick wing sauce. It has 3 ingredients and takes about 5 minutes. Use your favourite hot sauce, I opted for some Frank’s I find it tasty for wings and mix it in a saucepot with some melted butter and honey. Depending on your preference for spicy vs. sweet taste and adjust the level of honey once all the ingredients have mixed well together.

SERVE

As soon as the wings are done, drizzle them with that freshly made hot honey sauce. I just drizzled on a few spoonfuls of the sauce and served some extra on the side for dipping. Make the sauce just before serving since it has butter that way it won’t have time to separate as it cools.
