PJ’s housewarming…continued…the final recipe of the “series”…with guest chef BJ…
Boneless wings. What a perfect invention for the lazy eater like me. I know there are some of you out there who will have an opinion on this, but: I hate any food that takes work to eat. Like: ribs, crab/lobster and chicken wings. I guess “hate” is a strong word. I love those foods. I just don’t have the energy to fight the meat off the bone, or out of the shell. When these foods are involved, it’s my mom or Novin’s job to feed me like a baby bird. I just want direct food-to-mouth action without getting my hands dirty, or pieces of chicken wing up my nose.
And that is why the boneless wing is so perfect. An oxymoron, yes. But difficult to eat? No. And you can keep your hands clean for important things–like holding your beer.
Ingredients: (serves 10-15 people; scale down ingredients for smaller serving; 2 chicken breasts feeds 2 to 4 people)
6 chicken breasts
1/4 cup milk
3 cups flour
1 to 3 T salt
1 T cayenne
1 T chili powder
1 T paprika
vegetable oil for frying
Slice chicken breasts in bite-sized pieces like so:
In a large bowl, beat together eggs and milk. Add chicken pieces to egg mixture and evenly coat. Put flour, chili powder, salt, paprika, and cayenne in another large bowl and mix well. Remove chicken from egg mixture and add to flour bowl. Toss chicken in flour to evenly coat.
Chicken should be dry, like photo on the top. If it looks like photo on the bottom, it needs more flour coating.
Add chicken pieces to a deep fryer. BJ fried her boneless wings at 355 degrees for 3 to 5 minutes, or until golden brown. Toss wings in your favorite wing or BBQ sauce.
