I fry quite a lot of wings at home, and Im always looking for a different sauce or marinade recipe to try. Anybody have some go to standbys that are a little different?
First....lets get one thing straight :)
Breading a wing should be reserved for buttermilk marinated fried chicken, not "buffalo" style chicken wings, those are best done naked.
Some of my favorites are ...
Traditional Buffalo style (of course) with just hot sauce and butter.
Raspberry Chipotle: raspberry jam, bbq sauce, hot sauce, chipotles, and a little butter.
The Neelys Buffalo Wings recipe. It uses a lemon pepper marinade with a similar Buffalo style sauce.
Parmesan Garlic: parm cheese, chopped garlic, melted butter.
Hot BBQ: Shaken in BBQ sauce, grilled til sticky and slighly charred, then shook in straight hot sauce.
For those from WNY, Ive also been toying with a Chiavettas marinade/sauce combo (for those not from WNY, its a local vinegar based marinade/sauce). Where I marinate in Chiavettas, deep fry, then shake in a combo Chiavettas/Hot sauce mixture.
Hit me with some of your favorites. I look forward to trying them.
