Sometimes a girl just wants to eat chicken wings. Or something spicy. Or something garlicky and buttery and not all that good for you.
For these occasions, I have just the recipe: Spicy, Garlicky, Buttery Chicken Wings
My mom has been making this for years, but only on special occasions. It was definitely a treat whenever she decided to fry up chicken wings. Now that we’re older and our tastes have matured, she’s taken to adding hot peppers into everything she makes…which is more than fine by me.
2 dozen chicken wings (about 3lbs)
2 cloves of garlic, sliced
3 Habanero peppers, sliced
salt and pepper
1/4 cup of butter (1/2 stick)
Add chicken wings, garlic, peppers, salt and pepper in a zip lock bag. Shake the bag around and make sure everything is evenly distributed. Place in the refrigerator and let it marinade over night.
When you’re ready to cook these guys up, add the butter to a frying pan on medium heat. Place the wings in and make sure to have a lid handy. We always sit the lid on so that it’s halfway covering the pan. Do this. Unless you want a spicy, garlicky, buttery explosion on yourself and your stove top.
Turn the wings every few minutes to make sure they’re cooking evenly. Cook until they’re golden brown, about 15 minutes, depending on how big the wings are.
Proceed to eat the entire plate of wings….oh wait, sorry, that’s just me.
