Game Day Wing Recipes

Yoko-Kalea-Football-WingsThis weekend and next are going to be HUUGE for football fans around the nation, Yoko and myself included.

Not only are we lucky to witness the ProBowl once again at Aloha Stadium this Sunday, but next Sunday will be the long awaited SUPERBOWL 50!

Yoko and I are definitely going to watch both games.  And what’s a football game without food?  Not just any food, I’m talking about chicken wings!

Did you know that more than a billion chicken wings are consumed during every SuperBowl weekend?  That’s a lot of wings!

You can expect all the chicken joints to be super busy on the ‘Bowl days, so Yoko and I are sharing our favorite, WINNING recipes from

1/2 cup hot sauce
Celery Sticks

1.  Arrange wings on baking sheet and season with salt

Sweet & Lemony Wings
(Raechel Ray)

Spicy Chicken Wings

3 lbs chicken wings, joints separated, tips discarded
2 quarts vegetable oil
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 cup flour
2 lemons
1/2 cup fresh chopped herbs (such as parsley, oregano and thyme)
1/4 cup honey
2 tablespoons crushed red pepper
salt and pepper

In a large bowl, combine juice and zest lemons, fresh chopped herbs, honey, and crushed red pepper

2.  Let the chicken wings sit at room temperature for 30 minutes.  In a large, deep skillet with a lid, heat the oil until the temperature registers at 300 degrees on a deep-fry thermometer, about 5 minutes

3.  Preheat oven to 300 degrees and line a rimmed baking sheet with paper towels.  Season the wings with 1/2 teaspoon salt, then toss in the flour to coat.  Add half of the wings to the oil, partially cover the pan and fry, turning occasionally with tongs, until golden brown, 12 to 15 minutes.  Transfer to the prepared baking sheet; blot with paper towels, then discard the towels.  Keep the first batch of wings warm in the oven while you repeat the process with the remaining wings.

4.  Toss the wings in the lemon dressing to coat

5.  Serve and enjoy!
