More Recipes from the Bag Lady's Test Kitchen

The Bag Lady has been experimenting in the kitchen again. She wanted to make something a little different for an appetizer, so came up with two ways to do chicken wings.

The Bag Lady is all about easy (for Pete's sake, not that kind of easy!), so she covers her cookie sheets with tin foil before cooking her chicken wings... clean up is a breeze.

Salt and Pepper Wings

2 lbs chicken wings, cut up, tips discarded (about 16 pieces)

1/2 Cup whole wheat flour

2 Tbsp Grated Parmesan (the stuff in the container that keeps in the fridge forever!)

1 tsp garlic powder

1 tsp onion powder

2 tsp freshly ground black pepper

1 tsp freshly ground sea salt

Mix all dry ingredients. Rinse chicken wings, roll in flour mixture, place on cookie sheets. Bake at 350 for approx. 1 hour, or until crispy. Add freshly ground salt and pepper if desired.

These measurements are approximate, because the Bag Lady just throws things together until it looks good. One of these days, perhaps she'll measure as she goes along, instead of having to guess afterwards...

Sticky Chicky

2 lbs chicken wings, cut up, tips discarded (about 16 pieces)

1/4 Cup soy sauce

1 Cup brown sugar

1 Tbsp dry mustard

1 tsp paprika

1 tsp garlic powder

1 tsp onion powder

salt and pepper to taste

Mix brown sugar with mustard and spices. Rinse chicken wings, pat dry. Dip chicken wings in soy sauce, roll in sugar mixture, place on cookie sheets. Bake at 350 for approx 1 hour.

(It's a really good idea to use the tin foil trick on the cookie sheet with this recipe....)

The Bag Lady hopes you enjoy her new recipes. She knows it's not salsa, but it's not fresh tomato season here yet.

Have a great weekend!

Dang those sound good. And easy. I like easy. I wish we could have a sample of them right now.

There are a couple left-over in the fridge - how soon can you get here?

Geosomin said...

Mmmm...those sound yummy.

the Bag Lady said...

Thanks, Geosomin. I was quite pleased with how they turned out.

Oh, yum. There's a great recipe similar to that in the LooneySpoons Cookbook called "Fee Fie Faux Fried Chicken" but it's rather a process to make it. Your recipe looks much easier to prepare!

Sagan - it was really easy, and does taste similar to fried chicken. The Bag Lady loves her fried chicken, and this has far fewer calories (she hopes!)

Sounds good Sis!

Sounds yummmy - may have to try tonight for a treat. Today has been a DAY - I think it is a Friday disguised as a Monday, so I need something good!


the Bag Lady said...

Thanks, sis.
Missicat - the Bag Lady had one of those days today, too! Sheesh.

Okay, at first I felt guilty about tagging you just when we became friends, but now I'm so envious that you can grow things and can things and cook things that I can't stand it. Check my blog for the rules and tell us seven facts about yourself--we promise not to tell. (And if you believe that...) Now, wonder if I can follow this new recipe of yours.

the Bag Lady said...

Oh, Amy. Just saw what you did...
That's okay, though, I'll find a way to get back at you, someday when you least expect it!!
