Do you like Applebee’s?
When I was in my college days, every Friday, me and a group of friends would go to Applebee’s and eat half off appetizers. My order would vary but for the most part I would get potato skins and classic boneless buffalo wings. That meal would cost me no more than $8 and was as close to a home cooked meal as I was going to get. Although I have graduated from the University of Cincinnati almost 8 years ago (Geesh I’m getting old) I still crave and absolutely love boneless buffalo wings and potato skins. The one thing I had back then that is currently diminishing is a fast and active metabolism. So I gotta cut back, I guess.
I don’t eat them as much as I use to but I do love them just as much as I did when I was in my early 20’s. Whenever my significant other and I go out to get some wings, we usually go to this local place called “Roosters”. I usually get chicken wings covered in a Sweet Thai Chili Sauce and he gets Medium Garlic Wings and we both share an order of potato wedges. Although I like the flavor of wings that I order for myself, I absolutely LOVE his flavor of wings. He never switches it up. He always get the same thing. To be honest, I understand why. If you have never had Garlic Buffalo Sauce you should really try it. Especially if you love garlic. It’s basically just like buffalo wing sauce but with more flavors. When I told my fiance that I could I make the sauce he immediately gave me a look of disbelief. That disbelief turned into praise when he tasted the wings. He even got down on his knees and bowed (don’t tell him I told you that). So, take it from me, the woman who is dating a chicken wing maniac, if he says these wings are good…they are amazing!
- 1 stick unsalted butter
- 4 cloves garlic, minced
- 12 oz. Cayenne Hot Sauce
- 1 tsp. cayenne pepper
- 2 tsp. brown sugar
- 1 tsp. distilled vinegar
- 1.25 lb. boneless chicken breast
- 3 eggs
- 1 tbsp. milk
- 2 c. flour
- vegetable oil for fying
- In a medium sauce pan, melt the butter. Once the butter has melted, add the garlic and allow the garlic to simmer in the butter for 5-7 minutes. Pour the hot sauce in the sauce pan, add the cayenne pepper, brown sugar, vinegar, and stir. All the sauce to simmer for 10 minutes.
- Pour the vegetable oil in the deep fryer and allow to reach the temperature of 350 Degrees. Cut the chicken breast into large chunks equal in size as much as possible. You can season with salt and pepper if you want (the reason why this is optional is because you may find there is enough flavor in the sauce).
- In a large bowl whisk together the eggs and milk until well incorporated. Take the chicken chunks and dip in the egg mixture. Once the chicken has been dipped in the egg mixture shake off excess and coat in flour, turn to hot oil, and fry for 5-7 minutes. Once the chicken is completely cooked turn to plate lined with paper towels for about a minute or so.
- Dip the cooked chicken into the sauce and set aside. Repeat until all chicken is cooked and covered in sauce. Serve with your favorite dipping sauce.
