Love Me Some Chicken Wing!

So here I am - my first round of blogging on AR, sharing all of my wisdom and smartiness. Don't get nervous, its short.
Recently on the Buzz a few people had requested favorite wing recipes, with Superbowl XLVI fast approaching and all. If everyone's household is as typical as mine, then wings are a given for the Big Day menu no matter what else you are having. Each time it was requested I suggested the following simple recipe, so I thought now would be the perfect time to share this recipe I got from my sister's wedding rehearsal dinner.
Time flies too quickly in my life, so short, quick recipes are "da bomb" when it comes to fixing dinner, and this is one of the fastest, easiest recipes there is - three ingredients and done - wings served.
I used a four pound bag of prepped wings for this recipe, a bottle of Dynasty Oyster Sauce, and a half bunch of green onions, chopped.
To start with, mix the wings, half the bottle of oyster sauce mixed with about 3 tablespoons of hot water to get it more liquid, and half (of the half) of the green onions. Place it all in a plastic bag and squish out (yes, that IS a technical cooking term - at least in my world) as much air as possible. Put the bag in the refrigerator for at least 4 hours, all day or overnight is even better.
Once your wings have marinated in their deliciousness, dump the whole thing, marinade and all, into a baking pan and throw them in the oven at 375 for about 20 minutes or until nearly done.
If you cook them all the way at this point, no worries - the next step doesn't take long and the wings will be just fine.
To finish them off, remove the wings from the baking pan and discard the juices. At this point, I like to let the wings cool a bit because the sauce seems to stick to cooler wings a bit better than when they are all hot and steamy.
Put the wings on a baking sheet covered with foil and sprayed with non-stick spray. Pour the rest of the oyster sauce over the wings (no water this time) and add the other portion of the onions, mixing to coat. This is where the wings should actually be finished off on a hot grill because the flavor is out of this world fantastic, but my grill was unavailable tonight, so the oven it was.
Throw the wings back in a screaming hot oven (500 degrees) for about 10 minutes or until the wings are completely done, sticky, and wonderful. They should be a beautiful mahogany color at this point.
I have no idea what these are called but they are lovely and flavorful and oh so yummy.
So there you have it. My first blog. Hopefully I didn't bore you all to death and you're still awake. Till next time - - - and I hope you come back again - - - keep it between the navigational beacons. :D

Yum!! Those wings look very tasty! Good first blog, too. Nope, not bored to death, either!

Great blog! And oh man, that looks sooo yummy! Thanks for sharing. When I was dating my ,now husband, I used to marinate my wings using yoshida teriyaki sauce and adding chopped garlic to it. That was my favorite 3 ingredient recipe then.

Thanks all - so sweet! :) And by the way, yes, the entire pan of wings is g-o-n-e. I was a bit surprised that my picky kids liked them when we first had them - not something they usually go for, but they love it.

These wings look great! Your blog was nice too and the pics were wonderful. My guy was standing a few feet behind me and saw the pics and said "What's that?!" We'll be making these soon.
Jan. 25, 2012 12:30 am
One question though. What do you mean by "prepped" wings?
Jan. 25, 2012 1:00 am
Yum! We love wings, but hate the frying -- these look fantastic. Don't do Super Bowl down here, but I am planning a late summer party with lots of nibbles and finger foods -- this will be perfect! Congrats on starting your blog!!!

I love easy peasy recipes... thanks for sharing and welcome to the world of blogging!
Jan. 25, 2012 4:53 am
Nice looking wings! Thanks for sharing.
Jan. 25, 2012 5:02 am
Great blog, Caroline. I think you have convinced me to finally make wings. I think I may be the only person on AR who hasn't made wings. They look delicious!
Jan. 25, 2012 6:10 am
I enjoyed your blog. Those wings look finger lickin good. Keep blogging.

Do they end up tasting "fishy"? I've used Oyster Sauce in many recipes, but a much smaller quantity.
Jan. 25, 2012 8:17 am
Thanks for the wonderful comments everyone! Glad you all like it. :) Redly - prepped wings just means that I bought the frozen bag of wings that were already sectioned apart and then frozen - I just thawed them out and then proceeded as usual. Gebah - they do not taste fishy at all. I've used the oyster sauce in egg rolls and don't care for it, but on these wings it develops a wonderful, rich, deep flavor.

Thanks Caroline!
Jan. 25, 2012 8:42 am
Very welcome gebah! Have a wonderful day :D

Caroline - Wings look awesome. Now if you could just come up with a "firecracker" recipe for wings.
Jan. 25, 2012 9:00 am
These sound wonderful Caroline...I might make them for Superbowl. I love the flavor of oyster sauce so these would be a big hit with me!

bd.weld - I'm up for that challenge! :)
Jan. 25, 2012 9:08 am
Wyattdogster - hope you like them as much as we do! Can't wait to get my grill back up and running so I can have them on there - so good. Now if I can just get the foot of ice chipped off of it so I can light it up!

thanks for the idea, I am making wings this weekend, usually do a kick a$$ hot variety, and a BBQ sauce variety, will try this too
Jan. 25, 2012 10:26 am
Just discovered Oyster Sauce this summer when my sister marinated a flank steak - that stuff is so versatile! Good job!
Jan. 25, 2012 11:45 am
Looks good!
Jan. 25, 2012 2:39 pm
Thanks for something different from hot wings.I think these are what our local takeout Chinese place calls "Mahogany Wings" I'm saving this for sure.
Jan. 25, 2012 5:59 pm
They look amazing! Love Oyster Sauce but never saw it on wings! Who da thunk?!? Nice blog!
Jan. 26, 2012 6:10 am
oyster sauce & chicken wings ? I'll keep that one in the back of mind. Thanks - they look great.
Jan. 26, 2012 11:09 am
Yes, I know it sounds strange but a look at a couple of my personal and saved recipes and you'll find I'm kinda weird that way. :D
Jan. 26, 2012 12:47 pm
I recently discovered Oyster Sauce too and it very good. Its great added to Fried Rice - in fact I was told its the secret to fried rice. I have got to try this with wings. Thanks for sharing. - I'm off work tomorrow; have a great week end.
Jan. 26, 2012 5:48 pm
Thanks for the tip Carousel-Lady! :) Hope your weekend is fantastic too!

Well, I don't need the epi pen for this. :). However, you have the, what I refer to as "the forgiven weekend" of possible big game recipes. (we can test it out before SB weekend). Unfortunately I cannot experiment this weekend, so it's a "make it or use a recipe I know" gig. Not sure on this. It looks fabulous. Ok, going to buy oyster sauce. And "I'll be back. With my review."
Jan. 27, 2012 7:05 am
lisa j - you crack me up! :D
Feb. 11, 2012 4:02 pm
Great post! Love the photo too! We had't made wings that way yet (baked), we always deep fry them and toss them in sauce. Thanks for this idea, we just may have to try!

About Me
I'm currently a SAHM and loving it. I have four children from college age to preschool, and have been a professional cake decorator for years and when it all comes right down to it, cake is my life. :) I love to cook and bake for my family and especially love doing large meals for holidays. I also blog outside of AR - if you'd like to stop in and visit!
My favorite things to cook
I love finding the unusual recipes and trying them out. My grandmother's recipes are often my favorites - watermelon pickles, three (really four) bean salad, etc. I like to find very old recipes (and recipe books) and bring the forgotten recipes to life again.
My favorite family cooking traditions
My family is actually quite large but VERY spread out so our cooking traditions usually center around holiday fare. Good, hearty, home cooked dishes and stick-to-your-ribs casseroles and such. And butter. Lots and lots of butter.
My cooking triumphs
Finally being able to work with yeast! I had never had the knack for it until recently when I was determined to get over this love/hate relationship with yeast - I loved to use it and it hated me for it! But now I feel I have maybe developed the patience for it? I always seemed to be in a hurry before, but now things are working quite nicely.
My cooking tragedies
A beautiful dish made up solely by me at around age 10 - an astonishing grape jell-o and rice dish that was, oh, how shall I say it? "Different." :)
