The first night,
I BARBEQUED them in the oven here...
A week later, I made the same wings only I grilled them on the grill according to the directions...
OKAY! Tim preferred the grilled ones.
Me, you ask? It's a toss-up, both tasted the same but the grilled ones had a crispier scowl on them.
Whether you grill or bake them.
Okay, let's start by making the
Chop up the onions and garlic..
Pour the ketchup into a mixing bowl, add the cider vinegar and the brown sugar...
Add the Worcestershire sauce, chili powder, cayenne, cumin and mix all together...
So throw your onions and garlic into a skillet and begin sauteeing.
Add the ketchup mixture in.
And the aroma begins!
Oh, might I mention I had a little helper with me this day...
Next, mix up the olive oil, salt and pepper, and cider vinegar. Add this mixture into a plastic bag with the wings.
And let sit...
let me introduce you to my new vintage spoon rest I picked up at a garage sale.
You want it? Too bad.
Finders Keepers Losers Weepers.
Okay, back to the wings....
On the left we have the baking of the wings...
Get the wings set up on the baking rack.
Bake for about 15 minutes.
So then brush with some of the yummy barbeque sauce...do this TWICE. Cook for an additional 15 minutes
On the right we have the
grilling of the wings...
Go throw the wings out on the grill.
Grill for about 15 minutes.
Now brush with some of the barbeque sauce. Do this TWICE. Cook for an additional 15 minutes.
See that's it!!!
Plate up these finger lickin' babies!
With a Bean medley dish that I will be sharing.
With some sweet potato fries if you will.
Okay, either way you make the wings,
by baking or grilling,
the barbeque sauce is
THE STAR OF THE SHOW!!!
I guess this sauce works well on chicken breasts too!
I asked Tim why he liked the sauce so much and he responded:
1. Tangy but not too tangy.
3. Was it smoky? Cause something was real good in it.
4. Didn't give me heartburn either time.
Okay, now let's talk a little bit about the Slow Cooker Bean Medley from the same
Taste of Home Grill It magazine.
...with your chicken wings?
This Bean Medley is tangy and tasty and such a nice compliment to the barbeque chicken!
The reviews on this recipe state that it makes a good dip-like appetizer when you plate it next to a basket of crackers too.
So let's start this tangy Bean Medley recipe that goes in the slow cooker. You literally just throw stuff in the slow cooker and leave it alone! How easy is that??
So here's the fixins for this Bean Medley...
Chop up yer celery, green and red pepper and onions.
And that's all the prep work.
Now start throwing stuff in the slow cooker...
Start with the ketchup.
Add the chopped veggies...
Now add the bay leafs, vinegar, ground mustard and salt and pepper...
Now drain the beans...tons of beans!
You may want to cut this in half for smaller families!
lookin' good so far!
Mix up all the ingredients,
put a lid on it and slow cook for 5-6 hours.
This bean medley is healthy and is actually better the next day!
After 5-6 hours,
scoop up a spoonful of
hope ya'll liked these pictures and such of the barbequed wings and bean medley!
OH! Here's the recipes...
However, I would like to show you to my colorful, ceramic rooster hanging out in my barn first.
