I go back and forth on what my last meal would be. But one of the top contenders, that's been in the running ever since he first made them for me, are G's chicken wings. I've been obsessed with them for years, and despite receiving countless DMs asking how to make them, I've actually never shared the method on the blog! A lot of my hesitation to publish it here is that it's a stretch to even call our method "a recipe." We essentially bake the wings, then coat them in store-bought sauce. But they are truly one of my favorite recipes, which we indulge in at least once a month. Here's how to make G's chicken wings:

We always get about three-times the amount of chicken wings we're going to eat that evening because I love them cold as leftovers. This means we usually buy three pounds of wings at a time, but one pound is probably enough for one evening, for two. If you're getting them from a market with a butcher, you can request that the wings be chopped in half, which I recommend so you don't have to pull out a machete-knife at home to do it yourself.

Next, set your oven to 400° F (convection setting if you have it). Lay the wings out on a baking rack and add a light sprinkling of salt. We personally use a rack so the chicken can get crispy all the way around. If you're using a baking sheet, spray coconut oil directly onto the pan to ensure the meat doesn't stick. Then, bake the chicken for 20 minutes or until the chicken is lightly browned and the juices run clear. 

Once the chicken is cooked-through, we grab a bowl large enough to hold all of the wings to prepare for the sauce, which truly is the secret to this amazing recipe. We use the bottled sauce by Wing Time, and combine the hot and mild. Since we've never found a medium bottle, we use 3/4 of a bottle of the hot and 1/4 bottle of mild, the perfect amount for our 3 pounds of chicken. Try to coat the meat completely, then use tongs to toss them. 

Serve and eat! We eat them directly from the bowl with (wait for it) plastic gloves. It may sound crazy, and we look nuts while eating them, but the second we tried it, we decided we couldn't eat them any other way. You can get down and dirty with the wings, and instantly take them off to go about your night. Enjoy! x
