Chicken Wings at home.

Everybody loves wings.  Well maybe not, but I do, so I wanted to make them at home.  It turns out that they are not that hard to make and because they will be fresh they will likely blow away what you are used to.

Here is what I did...

I'm not a fan of the frozen prepared wings.  Fresh is best,.
I'm a huge fan of the drumette so I picked up  a pack of them and a nice size package of whole wings.  The ranch is for dipping and the hot sauce, corn starch, and teriyaki will make the glaze.

Let's begin...

The drumettes are good to go.  Now it's time to cut the whole wings.  Trial and error taught me the easiest way to cut them.. before we go forward, please have a sharp knife.  I bought a simple diamond sharpener for around $20.  It's great for old knifes that have been letting you down.

Here is a quick video on how to cut your wings.

Now that you have all of your wings cut up it's time to fry them up.  I use a nice size skillet with a cup and a half of vegetable oil.  Heat the oil on medium high for 5 to 7 minutes and put down a nice layer.
Let the wings cook for a good 10 minutes and flip.  You should have a good brown as seen above.

They need another 10.  Just let them be and when they are done remove them to a good draining area, I just use a paper bag as it is perfect for this application.
From here you can make any type of sauce that you want.

We are going to do Spicy Teriyaki!

Yeah I know but it works really well.  
This is half a bottle of the hot sauce and 3 tablespoons of cornstarch.
and then a half bottle of the teriyaki sauce.
Hand mix and you will get this.

After your wings have drained, just mix with your sauce. 

Great wings were had by all.

There are a few more methods, I'll show you guys in the future, this is one of my favorites.


Punkin got all mad because she didn't get a wing.

Fresh wings are the best wings.  I hope you guys enjoy!
