Lighter Buffalo Chicken Wings Recipe
(adapted from Ellie Krieger's "Comfort Food Fix")
(makes 4 servings)
2 pounds chicken wings, split at the joint
1/4 cup cayenne pepper sauce (for example: Frank's Red Hot)
Place wings into a large pot and fill the pot with cold water to cover the wings by 2 inches. Bring to a boil, and boil for 10 minutes. While chicken is boiling heat your broiler to HIGH. When done, drain and place chicken wings on rimmed cookie sheet.
Broil 6 inches from element or flame for 5 to 6 minutes per side. The skin should blister and brown. You are just trying to get that CRUNCH texture added to the wings.
Drizzle with reserved sauce. At this point you can toss them to make a covered wing or leave a bit uncovered for less messy eating.
