Baked Chicken Wings

It's November which means that college football is on the schedule for the weekend.   What games will you be watching this weekend? 

More importantly, what will you be snacking on while you cheer on your favorite team?

Cooks' Country published a baked chicken wing recipe in their latest magazine.  My family is always up for chicken wings so I decided to try it out on them.

Oven Fried Chicken Wings
4 pounds chicken wings
2 Tablespoons baking powder
3/4 teaspoons salt

Wing Sauce
1/2 cup hot sauce
4 Tablespoons butter, melted
1 Tablespoon molasses

Set wire rack in foil lined baking sheet and preheat oven to 250.  Pat wings dry with paper towels.

Transfer wings to a ziploc bag and add baking powder and salt.  Shake to coat.

Arrange wings on wire rack.

Bake 30 minutes on lower-middle rack of oven.  Move to upper-middle rack, increase heat to 425 and bake an additional 40-50 minutes.

Transfer wings to a bowl and coat with sauce of your choice.

I mixed up the recipe for hot sauce but I put that in a separate dish for dipping.  I coated my wing with a mildly tangy barbeque sauce that is more kid - friendly. 

Serve with celery and ranch. (or blue cheese)

Watching the football game will never be quite the same again.
