Wings Four Ways

Pin It My husband and I really enjoy going out to Wild Wing Cafe and eating the sampler platter of 25 wings with five different flavors. With two little ones at home and no family nearby, it has made that little venture a tad more difficult so I decided to see what I could come up with for an at-home version of our favorite flavors. Begin by using the base recipe and baking the wings in the oven until cooked and crisp, then coat in the sauces and cook an additional 5 minutes or so. Here's what I came up with:

Base Wing Recipe:
about 1 dozen wings trimmed of tips and cut into two
3/4 cup flour (or Bisquick)
2 T paprika
1 T salt
1 t pepper
butter or margarine

Preheat oven to 450 and place about 1-2 T butter or margarine in glass pan in oven. Mix dry ingredients and lightly coat wings in mixture. Place wings in single layer in the pan of melted butter and cook about 30-45 minutes or until wings are done and crispy, turning once about halfway through. Remove wings and place in four separate pans coating each in the flavors listed below. Return the wings to the oven for about 5-10 minutes or until the sauces begin to bubble and adhere to the wing surface.

Honey Lime
2 T lime juice
4 T honey
4 T fresh chopped cilantro
2 cloves fresh chopped garlic
2 tsp. chicken bullion
1 tsp. salt

Honey Mustard Buffalo
3 T honey mustard
4 T spicy buffalo barbecue sauce

Spicy Asian
2 tsp. soy sauce
1 T orange marmalade
2 tsp. rice wine vinegar
1/4 tsp. ground ginger
1/4 tsp. garlic powder
2 T ketchup
red pepper flakes

1 packet ranch seasoning

These are perfect for sitting down to a football game or a family gathering. Hope you enjoy and let me know what you think!
