More Keto Chicken Wings!!!
Let me introduce you to my friend Joe Duff. He’s not only a Keto chef who runs an awesome Youtube channel but he’s also part of the Duff Family that owns ‘Duff’s Famous Wings‘. So when he offered to send me some of their hot sauce, I couldn’t refuse. However given that their slogan says Medium is Hot, Hot is Very Hot and so on and so forth. I asked him to send me the mildest sauce they had. And so he did. When I opened the bottle and tasted it, I didn’t find it hot at all. I guess I am Indian after all. The sauce though was delicious!
Now living in India I’ve never had a Buffalo Wing apart from whatever the Hard Rock Cafe served in Mumbai when they opened years ago. Their food sadly got worse as time went by and the wings never tasted the same. But this sauce reminded me of that flavour. So i started looking up recipes for Buffalo wings. All of them were simple. Season the wings with salt and pepper, either coat in flour (or not) and deep fry. Then toss the wings in the buffalo hot sauce and butter and that’s it.
Of course I should have just followed the recipe. But I didn’t. I wanted to create something new and use Indian techniques of marinating the meat to take the buffalo wings up a notch. How did I do? Watch the video and find out.
I’m changing the recipe!
If you watched the video I did have a few slip ups. I didn’t anticipate the butter solidifying because of which the marinade didn’t really stick to the chicken. This resulted in me dumping the wings into the pan and they basically stewed in their own juices and melted butter. So I had to think on my feet and remove them from the oven. I then put them back on the wire rack and reduced the sauce down further. I finally had to go back to the almost original way of making them.
So I think the thing to do differently is not use any butter in the marinade. Use just double the amount of yogurt with salt, pepper and the hot sauce. This should easily coat the wings and work as a marinade. Then bake the wings on a wire rack right from the start for about 35 minutes. This should result in the perfect wings. At least my idea of the marinade will work out properly. Then you heat some of the hot sauce along with butter in a pan and then douse the finished wings in that.
This is how I would do it the next time I make them.
I’ll figure it out later and add it. Cheers!
