My husband loves fried chicken. I’m telling you, if there was a KFC in our town, I would have to drag him out of there kicking and screaming every day. Don’t get me wrong – I do love fried chicken, too, but he’d rather eat it every single day and it’s not exactly very healthy if that’s ALL you ever have for supper… So I’ve been trying to come up with a perfect recipe that would taste just as delicious, but would be a little bit healthier and less greasy.
I had tried different ways to make chicken wings but none of them really seemed to wow him. He never complains about any of my cookings (his mother raised him right) but you know how it is. When you’ve lived with someone for twenty years, he only needs to raise an eyebrow and you know what he’s thinking!
I had almost given up hope already, but then I decided to get back to basics and only use the ingredients I knew he really loved. I made a sort of a marinade for chicken wings and then baked them in the oven. You should have seen my husband’s face when he tried them! His eyes just lit up!
I did not want to turn these into hot wings, even though we do enjoy spicy food as well. I added just enough Sriracha to give these a tiny bit of a kick, but you may just as well leave it out, if you don’t like spicy food at all.
On the other hand, if you do enjoy it – just add more hot sauce and chili powder! We also love garlic so I decided to add both fresh cloves and garlic powder. It turned out perfect for us, but you could use onion powder instead, if preferred.
