Chicken Wings

About a month ago, I started craving some buffalo chicken wings, but didn't really have the time to make some. I decided to pick some up at a pizza joint about a block from my home, but they just didn't do them right (they were breaded - an obvious no no for the true buffalo wing connoisseur). I guess I should have known - 'this west coast folk don't know nothing about no buffalo wings'.
Finally, I decided to go ahead and make mine. The recipe is simple - toss the wings in seasoned salt, let sit for about 30 mins. Toss them in a little bit of flour (about a teaspoon), deep fry and toss in your favorite buffalo sauce. Yummy!!!

After cooking up a second batch about a week later, I got sick of eating buffalo wings, but I still had some frozen wings left in the freezer. Not really a dilemma, but, since I am always looking to add something new to my mental recipe book, I decided to try making 'Teriyaki Wings'.

I picked up a teriyaki glaze/marinade from the store ( I picked a teriyaki glaze over a teriyaki sauce because it is thicker, which makes it more likely to stick). I tossed the wings in salt and black pepper, cooked them in the oven at 400 degrees Fahrenheit until they started to brown, tossed them in the glaze, then put them back in the oven for about 10 mins to brown.

The result - a simple but excellent and tasty wing dish. I made mine a meal with some homemade coleslaw on the side.
