Do I Really Have To? Spicy Wings

My daughter asked me last weekend, "Is it hard to make fried chicken?"

"Nope it's not hard." Was my response (while clenching my teeth).

And she didn't know anything about my secret thoughts;

UGH!! My whole entire house is going to smell like fried chicken. I will have to use a whole bottle of Fabreeze just to get rid of the smell.

Do I really want to take two showers in one day?

And the mess is going to be disgusting.

Do I really want to deal with all of that?

Yes, I did!!

I asked my daughter to go and get the package of chicken legs I had in the freezer.

The chicken legs turned out to be chicken wings.

Don't ask me how a package of chicken can do a quick-change in the freezer.

There is no way wings can be just fried.

When you have wings....they have to be made into hot wings. Correct?

Please back me on this one because my daughter was not happy when she got home from school.

I cut the wing tips off (discarded them) and kept the drummies.

I soaked my drummies in heavy whipping cream (my new found staple ingredient) and then rolled them in whole wheat flour seasoned with salt and ground black pepper (lots of pepper).

I then fried them in about an inch and a half of canola oil on med/high heat. I let them fry about 3 to 5 minutes on each side (my house is starting to stink!).

(I can smell the grease on my clothing, in my hair, and on my skin....EWWW!!)

After they were fried I placed them in a big Tupperware bowl that is fitted with a lid.

When my daughter got home from school and found out I turned the fried chicken into hot wings she was not happy.

"Why do you always have to ruin everything? I'm not eating them!"

Ha, she ate them....that is her plate.

Were they good just fried without the hot wing sauce?

Yes, they were, but I'm not going to tell my daughter that....YIKES!!

After I got all the wings fried I poured hot wing sauce (the whole bottle) over them, put the lid on, and lightly shook the bowl to coat them all. You want to make sure you shake lightly or your crunchy coating will fall off.

The only dilemma I faced was: We had an open house appointment at the vocational school to attend in the evening. I placed the chicken wings in a warm crock pot while we were gone. And my daughter is going to attend the vocational school for chef training (I am proud). But anyway, back to the dilemma. With the wings being kept in the warm crock pot with the lid on, it caused my crunchy coating to become soft. This is a food that has to be served right away. They were still good though, just ask my daughter....

Good Luck~Happy Eating~Enjoy
