Healthier Chicken Wings

When you want to indulge in chicken wings but want to make them at least a little bit healthier, here is a tip.

I made these tonight. And what I did is boiled them in water first for about 5 minutes or so until they were done and a lot of the fat was boiled off.

Then I marinated them in a homemade teriayki sauce I made and then later cooked the in the oven at 350 degrees until they were as crispy and as gooey as I wanted them.

Basic Hack

So basically boil off the fat, season the wings with salt and pepper and sauce of your choice and then cook in the oven on a sheet pan or cookie sheet until they are the way you like them. You can even put the broiler feature on in your oven at the near end to really crisp them up and then toss a little more sauce on them to finish them off.

And ENJOY!

These were delicious.

Cooking Tip – Crisp up That Celery & Green Onion

Celery stalks and a green onion in cold water

When you are wanting to use celery and/or green onions but would like them nice and crisp and fresh, just soak them in cold water for a bit.

I did this today while preparing a salad for dinner. I also like to make the salad ahead and leave some moisture on it, stick it in the fridge and let it get really cold and crisp before serving. There is nothing worse than wilty lettuce. Wouldn’t you agree? 🙂

I hope you enJOYed my tip today and make sure you always have FUN in the kitchen and don’t be afraid to try things. 🙂
