Super Bowl barbecued chicken wings! . . .

DSCN0285Well, I have to admit that I’ve never made chicken wings for a football game. But since this might be a chance for the Patriots to win a 6th Super Bowl game, I thought I’d give it a try. Especially since I’m hoping that they’ll win without having us bite our fingernails to the very last minute! GO PATS!!

I bought a pack of chicken wings at the store, rinsed them well and dried them, placing them into a big mixing bowl. In a separate bowl, I mixed together the homemade barbecue sauce:

1 scant cup of Heinz ketchup; 2 Tablespoons of Poupon dijon mustard; 2 Tablespoons light brown sugar, a squirt of honey, 1 Tablespoon Worcestershire sauce, 1 teaspoon smoked paprika, hand ground coarse pepper, Lawry’s garlic salt. Stir together with a spoon and add to wings, stirring until they’re covered with the sauce.  I left the bowl of wings on the countertop, placing a dinner plate over the top.

When it was suppertime, I placed the wings onto a cookie sheet covered with aluminum foil and roast them at 375 degrees until cooked through. Then, I switched the oven to the broiler and browned the wings until they’re golden and crispy.

At the same time, I baked some cornbread with creamed corn to go with the chicken wings. Might grate some fresh cabbage and onion to make a light coleslaw to add some crunch to the meal.

We are hoping the Pats pull off another win. But all the others have been so suspenseful that I’m hoping for an early lead so that I can sit back, relax and knit during the game! Either way, I just hope they WIN!
