Easy Peasy Super Bowl Wings

Superbowl is coming soon, maybe, depending on the snow. The snow storm has been horrendous lately that we spent most of our time shoveling. It is a good thing. Got our workout time in spite of the weather.

As a tradition here in the US, we celebrate SuperBowl with, what else, food. Superbowl, celebrated just like other holidays calls for its own food. Just like Thanksgiving with Turkey, Christmas with cookies and pies, Superbowl is incomplete without wings, chilli, nachos, burgers and chips n dips.

I am seriously tempted to do a superbowl series of recipe. However, if I am to do that, it will call for my family to eat Superbowl food for a week, which by no means will the cardiologist approves. Let's start with the wings and we will figure the rest out later.

The usual wings served during a Superbowl party will be buffalo wings. However, I came up with this easy delicious healthy wing recipes, baked and not fried. They are just as good and better for you too.

Superbowl Wings recipe
(serves 6-8 as an appetizer)

3lb wings (about 1.5kg), sectioned
2 recipe of brine
2 recipe of seasoning
4 tablespoon of olive oil

1. Brine the sectioned chicken wings for 2 hours in the refrigerator
2. Prepare two baking sheets. Grease generously with 2 tablespoon of olive oil on each sheet.
3. Drain the wings from the brine. Pat dry with paper towel.
4. Preheat oven to 400F (about 200C). Arrange wings, skin side down on baking sheet in a single layer.
5. Sprinkle with seasoning liberally to coat wings.
6. Bake for 25 mins, turning wings once halfway.
7. If you have the speed bake or convection oven option, turn it on in the last 10 minutes of baking time to crisp up the skin. If you don't, let the wings cooked for the full 25 mins. Pull it out. Turn the broiler to low. Broil it for 3-5 mins to crisp up the skin. Keep an eye on the browning process as not to burn wings.
8. Served with blue cheese dressing, celery and carrots or your favorite hot sauce.
