It’s funny ever since I came up the BEST WAY TO MAKE CRISPY OVEN “FRIED” wings I’ve been in love with these suckers! I’ve shared with you countless wings recipes throughout the years. Then when I bought my first pressure cooker (Emeril by T-fal CY4000 Nonstick Dishwasher Safe Electric Pressure Cooker) I became addicted to ’em. It’s funny because for decades you couldn’t pay me to eat a wing let alone chicken with bones in it. Oh trust me it was awesome going out on wing night with my friends and Mr. Fantabulous only I was the one ordering something other than wings. OR better yet I’d order wings and use a fork to pick the meat off. God forbid I hit something icky while taking off the meat – yeah I was done and often went hungry. I know, I’m weird.
But slowly I started to appreciate them and realize that meat is often richer and have a more depth of flavor if it’s cooked with the bone. Or as Mr. Fantabulous would say I “suck it up buttercup and put on your big girl panties”! FYI I tried that same tactic with him when it came to telling him to kill the ginormous (when really it was maybe the size of a dime) spider. Yeah I’m pretty sure that I didn’t step in and kill it he was pretty much going to set the house on fire to kill it.
Now if this recipe looks a tad familiar it is. It’s kinda sorta like my Pressure Cookier Asian Sticky Ginger thighs but the ingredients vary slightly. And plus it’s wings. LOL Truth be told he’s odd when it comes to thighs. If we went to say KFC (which has happened maybe 3 times in the bajillion years we’ve been together) he’ll only ever get a breast and to boot he picks off the crispy part. I know, right! Crazy! HOWEVER any time I make thighs he inhales them saying how much he loves them. Yet when I tell him they are thighs he just shakes his head telling me no that I’m mistaken. LOL Ah okay baby.
Ever since I shared with you how to make the most amazing Crispy Baked Oven Fried wings in both regular and Sticky Honey BBQ, both recipes have gone VIRAL. I mean we’re talking from Pittsburgh to Japan, Antarctica to Australia! So for that, Thank You! Honestly it’s overwhelming and still surprises me to this day that my name is known globally. It’s rendered me speechless at times (Mr. Fantabulous thanks you for that by the way) and has truly kept me humbled and grounded. And knowing that even just 1 other person on this planet made my recipe is more than I can ask for. However to know that millions have and love it is just surreal. I truly am blessed that you all allow me to share my dream and passion with you.
Now… let’s talk food. Here in the states we’re getting ready for the Super Bowl. Now even though the Steelers aren’t in it this year (still love ya Black ‘n Gold!) I’ll still watch it and get into it. But as I’ve gotten older, football get togethers isn’t just about football, it’s about food. I mean seriously, it’s a requirement that if you’re hosting the game at your house that you have a killer spread of food that goes beyond chips and salsa. Yes those should be there but with the foodie rage out there, great food is a must! If you’re hosting this year, this is a MUST HAVE dish! I’m telling you, these wings are the bomb! Honestly, I think out of all my crispy baked oven friend wings, this is one of my favorites! Seriously anything with peanut sauce ROCKS!
Normally I make about 2 dozen of wings a week leaving them nekkid (without sauces) this way we can sauce them however we want. He loves the honey bbq or burn a hole in your gut hot whereas I like the honey bbq, ranch, butter garlic and now these.
