I thought I’d wing it ! I don’t like the fried ones, so I baked them.  They turned out great. My husband was impressed.

I used:

1) 8 pieces of chicken wings, skin on.

2) 1/4 tsp of fresh black pepper

3) salt to taste

4) 1/4 tsp red chilly powder

5) 1 tbslp of extra virgin olive oil

6) 1/4 cup of lemon juice

7) 1/4 tsp of garlic power

7) your favorite Buffalo wing sauce –I used Franks 

I marinated the chicken wings in ingredients 2 through 6 for 4 hrs, or overnight [make sure you place in the refrigerator]. Preheat oven to 425 degrees F. Arrange the wings on a baking sheet and bake. Half an hour later, check on the wings. Water should accumulate–throw it all away and return to the oven to bake for another half an hour or more until they are golden brown and crispy. Remove them, and toss them hot in the buffalo wing sauce and serve hot.

For fries: 

2 potatoes, peeled and cut into wedges. Drizzle some extra virgin olive oil. Add salt, fresh ground pepper, and oregano. Toss well. Place on baking sheet, and bake at 425 degrees F until golden brown and crispy. Serve hot.

Simple Baked Chicken

This is something that you can whip up real fast when you are in the mood for something light, and don’t want to spend much time cooking. It’s an emergency food for me, without sacrificing taste.

You will need:

1) 1 Cornish hen quarter with skin on [or any regular whole chicken will do].

2) 2 medium sized potatoes peeled, and quartered lengthwise [into wedges]

3) 3 tbslp of extra Virgin Olive Oil

4) 1/2 tsp of ground cinnamon

5) 1/4 fresh ground pepper

6) salt to taste

7) ground chilly power  or pepper flakes [ or chilly paste] OPTIONAL but gives it a nice kick.

8) 1 small red or yellow onion thinly sliced [I used red]

Preheat oven at 400 degrees Fahrenheit. In a Pyrex place the chicken, onions, and potatoes. Add the rest  of the ingredient. Mix well.  Add 1 cup of water, from the side of the pan don’t disturb the spices that have clung to the chicken, onion and potatoes. Bake uncovered for 45 minutes until golden brown. There will be a wonderful broth at the bottom of the pan.

Serve with bread. Enjoy!
