Crispy Wings

Serves 4-6
 INGREDIENTS:
1 Package of Wings

DIRECTIONS:
Boil a large pot of water, enough for the chicken to fit it. Once the water is boiling, carefully place chicken in water. Boil for 45-50 minutes. The juice out of the bone will run clear, pull chicken away from bone to make sure all blood has cooked out.

Chicken Postickers

Makes 3 dozen
These are so easy and so yummy! Try pairing these with my Lettuce Wraps
 INGREDIENTS;
1 LB ground chicken (Safeway and Walmart now carry this, or have your butcher order it in for you)
1 tbsp Asian Chili Sauce
1 bushel of green onions chopped
1 tbsp soy sauce
(you can add cabbage if you want)
Won Ton wrappers. (Found in the produce department next to the tofu)

DIRECTIONS:
Place ground chicken in pan and cook. Once the chicken begins to cook add soy sauce and chili sauce. Once the chicken is cooked through, remove from heat and add green onions. Mix well.

Place won ton wrapper on prep station and fill with 1 1/2 tsp of chicken mixture. Wet your fingers and wet all four edges of the wrappers. Fold in half, wet fingers again to help seal edges. Continue process until all wrappers are filled.

Once your wrappers are filled, in a large skillet heat a small amount of oil. Place the wrappers in oil, heat on both sides until lightly browned. Place on paper towels to let drain.

Serve with soy sauce and chili sauce mixture.

Corn Dogs

Makes up to 10 corn dogs.

In Arizona October is the Month of the State Fair, which always has me craving "Fair Food". Del loves corn dogs so here is a very simple recipe for them.

INGREDIENTS
1 package of your favorite hot dogs
Wooden skewers
1 1/2 cups cornmeal
1 cup flour
2 tbsp sugar
1 1/2 tsp baking powder
1 1/4 cup milk
2 eggs
1 whole bottle vegetable oil

DIRECTIONS:
In a small sauce pan empty vegetable oil into pan and heat on high for 5 minutes. Then reduce heat to medium high.

Mix together Flour, cornmeal, sugar, and baking powder. Add 1 cup milk and the eggs. Whisk together. If batter is too thick add additional milk 1 tbsp at a time until you get a good consistency.

Pour batter into a tall glass. Dip hot dogs in batter. (Do not put stick in hot dog yet, learn from my mistake)


Once hot dog has been dipped, place into oil. Let fry until golden brown on all sides. I could put about 3-4 hot dogs in batter at a time.

Once the corn dogs are golden brown remove from oil with tongs. Place on a paper plate to let oil drain. Place wooden skewers in the bottom of the corn dogs now. (Much easier this way)

Serve with your favorite condiments.
