Recipe of the Week 9/2/16 - Baked "Buffalo" Wings

The hardest part about changing my eating habits is missing my favorite foods. My all time favorite is buffalo wings. Smokeaters was a place I would go to at least once a week and indulge in sweet fried goodness.

Luckily, I have found a substitute, and truthfully, I like these more because I don't get that grease filled coma after!  So here it is, baked "buffalo" wings

What you need:
- 2lb chicken wings. (Trader Joe's has an organic choice that's perfect!)

 - 1 cup Tapatio hot sauce ( for zone diet, it's basically a freebie)

- 2 tablespoons butter
- 1 tablespoon minced garlic (or more it you want)

Cooking Instructions:

1. Let wings thaw if frozen
2. Melt butter and mix with hot sauce and garlic
3. Put chicken in large Ziploc bag (or bowl) and mix it all up
4. Let chicken sit in sauce for an hour in fridge
5. Use a cookie sheet and cover in foil
6. Preheat oven to 375
7. Place wings on sheet and cook for 20 minutes
8. Turn wings over, cover in any additional sauce left from step 3
9. Cook another 20 minutes or until wings are no longer pink in middle
10. Grub!

5 wings is four blocks if you’re zoning!
