Chicken Wings

There is a place in Eagle, Wisconsin, that serves up the best chicken wings we have ever had. Justin and I stumbled across it one night when we were up there looking for a place to eat. I cannot remember where we were originally trying to go, but the place was closed. We saw the bar on the corner and decided, “What the heck.” There were about a hundred Harley’s lined up in the front and a very large, intimidating man at the door, but we went in anyway. We ordered up a bucket of chicken wings and a couple of cold beers and we were hooked.

We used to take the kids on Thursday nights and have a feast. Thursday was wing night, cost a quarter a basket or something ridiculous like that. I would not normally take my kids to a biker bar, but the food was amazing! They had a huge beer garden out back and we would all pile in the cars and drive up there. It was the place we had to go if we were in Wisconsin. We have had some great times in that place.

When I was diagnosed and had to give up gluten, the one time that we went because the kids begged us to go, there was not a single thing I could eat.   Our days of Knuckleheads were over. I truly miss the whole experience, it was so much fun and I really miss the wings. I just could not force myself to go sit through an hour or so of torture while everyone else ate, because I really loved those wings. So Justin would take the kids every once in a while and I would see the take out containers and be sad.

I decided to be proactive instead of sad. I was determined to figure out how to make their wings. It has taken me quite awhile to perfect this recipe. I tried a dozen store bought wing sauces and eventually gave up on that and came up with my own homemade recipe that just works.

I got a deep fryer from the kids for Christmas a couple of years ago and that my friends, was the key to take these wings to perfection. If you are gluten free, and can swing it, I would seriously consider investing in a deep fryer. They come in all sizes and price ranges, I think the one I have cost about $75.00. To make these wings, they need to be deep-fried. I have done them in a cast iron skillet with oil and that works, but the deep fryer works better. Baking is also an option, but to achieve the proper texture, they need to be fried. Once you get that deep fryer, I have a fantastic fried fish and chips recipe that I will give you.

Chicken Wings
The wings I use for this recipe are called, Drummettes. Regular size chicken wings will not work for this recipe, they are too big and will not come out well. I have used them and have even tried cutting them up, but they just don't work well. The grocery store sells Drummettes and they work perfectly. I use a light oil like peanut or canola oil. It is always better to start with a clean fryer. Frank's Red Hot Sauce is the sauce you will want to use, it works the best and they sell it just about everywhere. Whatever you decide to use, Tabasco sauce will not work.

Instructions
  1. Preheat the fryer to 355º Preheat the oven to 350º
  2. Place 8-10 drummettes in the fryer at a time and cook for 7 minutes. When they are done, let the wings drain for a minute and place them into a large bowl
  3. When you are on your last 2 batches in the deep fryer, place the butter and the hot sauce in a medium size sauce pan and heat on low. You want it just hot enough to melt the butter, stirring frequently. Making the sauce too early will cause the hot sauce to separate. When the butter is melted, remove from the heat and set aside
  4. When all your wings are done being cooked in the deep fryer, add half the hot sauce mix to the bowl and mix together until all the wings are coated with sauce.
  5. Place the wings on a baking sheet and cook for 10 minutes at 350º. When the wings are done take the remaining sauce and spread over the wings
  6. Serve with blue cheese and/or ranch dressing and fresh cut up vegetables. I use carrots and celery Enjoy!
