from Chef Moe
Hi everyone it’s Chef Moe here once again with one of my very favorite foods to make and eat: chicken wings! I love them so much, especially when it’s the beginning of football season. (Go Cowboys—whooo!) Wings are party favorites for any occasion and will most definitely be a hit no question. There are many different styles and methods of making fried chicken wings or what most people call “Buffalo wings” because they were invented in Buffalo, New York.
My favorite is Lemon Pepper or Jerk Buffalo wings. We recently had a wedding with teriyaki wings and lemon pepper wings, which we made with no problem and where good.
But after the wedding, the cooks and I in the kitchen where joking around. We had left over wings, and we also had spicy honey leftover from another dish, so we decided to toss the wings with the spicy honey, which thinned the lemon pepper. OMG, that was the best decision we ever made! It was sweet, spicy, and lemony—so much flavor but not over powering one another. It was a very good combo of flavors.
Today I’m going to leave you all with our new recipe, called Spicy Lemon Pepper Honey Wings. Please try it out and enjoy. Until next time, people, remember to stay hungry and cook with a smile.
SPICY LEMON PEPPER HONEY WINGS RECIPE
- ½ cup raw all organic honey
- ¼ hot sauce ( Texas Pete )
- 24 free range chicken wings whole or cut
- ¼ cup lemon pepper
Garnish & Condiments
- Fresh-cut celery
- Ranch or Blue Cheese dressing for dipping
Heat fryer to 350 degrees and toss in dried chicken wings—no flour, just skin on—and cook for 10-15mins. I like mine very crispy.
Meanwhile, in a small mixing bowl, combine honey and hot sauce together and whisk until all ingredients are mixed together, then set aside.
Toss wings with the spicy honey until coated evenly. Sprinkle lemon pepper over coated wings until a nice coat of lemon pepper is on the wings.
Serve with celery, ranch, and blue cheese.
