Ahh summer, when you can eat so well, so easily... there is abundance everywhere you turn! So many farms have so much to offer right now, and one of our favorite treats is to turn every seasonal veg into some kind of tasty pizza. And what goes better with pizza than chicken wings? Here is how we make our not-fried chicken wings, including sauce and we've never had a complaint! We thought we'd share, so you too can sit on your porch with a good brew and the classic pizza/wings pairing- but far more delicious because it's FARM style!
1 Dozen Wings, split
1/2 stick of butter
1 cup crushed tomatoes
1/8 cup ketchup
1/8 cup brown sugar
liberal amounts of salt, chilli powder, pepper, garlic powder and smoked paprika
Par-boil your wings (probably for about 5-10 minutes) while you are preheating your oven to 425.
On the stove-top, mix all of your sauce ingredients and let it cook down at a simmer for at least 15 minutes. Don't be afraid to add spices, take some away or just generally change the entire sauce recipe. Though the butter is key to make a smooth sauce.
Spread your wings out on a cookie sheet, and toss them in olive oil, salt and pepper. Roast them until golden brown, crispy and cooked thoroughly.
Pour your sauce over your wings once they are ready to serve. Eat them immediately, and provide ample napkins!!
