So my spread included my chili, black beans, Jalapeno poppers and chicken wings.
Lets focus on the unusual - the wings, why because they were bake not fried!
I took hints from Bobby Flay (cooking chicken at 300 F) and Alton Brown (who fries his chicken twice a higher temperature the second time).
Chicken wings were rubbed with a dry rub over night.
Spicy Chicken Wings
Dry rub ratio:
· 1 ginger
· 1/2 cumin
· 1/4 dry chipolte peppers
· 1 raw sugar
· 1/4 cayenne pepper
· 1/4 salt
· 1/4 smoked salt
- 1 paprika (smoked, hot or regular)
Wings are coated and left over night
bring to room temp and bake at 300 F for 1 hour, remove and let cool
1 cup plain or panko bread crumbs mixed with paprika or crushed red pepper
create an egg wash (scrambled eggs)
dip each wing in the wash and then coat in bread crumbs
place on a greased cooking rack and baked at 400 F for 45 minutes
Cool and serve with dipping sauce.
