INGREDIENTS

  • 4 lbs chicken wings (two 2-lb packs)
  • 2/3 cup flour
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 tbs chili powder
  • 2 tsp garlic powder
  • 1 tsp pepper
  • 2 tablespoon baking powder
  • 1/3 cup to 1/2 cup hot sauce (Tolula is a good one)
  • 1 stick of European-style butter (regular is fine; but European-style will give you a creamier sauce)

For dip:

  • 1 1/2 cup plain Greek yogurt
  • 1/3 cup chopped fresh cilantro
  • 1/3 cup finely chopped fresh chives
  • 1 clove minced garlic
  • Zest from 1/2 lemon
  • Salt, pepper, to taste

Adapted from Yellow Bliss Road’s recipe, we toyed with the spices and sauce, and added a ranch-chive dip to balance the spicy with cool. Perfect for game day!

PREPARATION

  • Preheat oven to 450 degrees.
  • Mix garlic, chili powder, salt, pepper, and flour in a large bowl, and toss in chicken to coat.
  • Prep a baking tray with tinfoil and margarine or cooking spray.
  • Put wings on cookie sheet, spaced evenly.
  • Bake 30-33 minutes. (Flip wings halfway through.)
  • Next, the sauce. Add 1/3 cup hot sauce to a small saucepan and a stick of butter. Heat through until bubbling slightly. Continue toying with hot sauce and butter amounts until you get the spice level you seek!
  • Once wings are out of the oven, transfer to a large bowl, pour over sauce, and toss to coat.
  • To make cilantro-chive yogurt dip, combine remaining ingredients and refrigerate 20 minutes before serving.
