From time to time Is like to make a pub inspired dinner - often because there aren't a lot of gluten free friendly pubs that have all my favorites. Of the pub meal, my favorite component is chicken wings. I remember years ago going for pub dinners based on 10 cent chicken wings. Play pull tabs just added to the fun of the meal.
Now I make chicken wings at home. But instead of making the deep fried pub version I make a baked version. Using this gluten containing recipe, I easily adapted it to be gluten free.
To make my version, you will need:
- Chicken Wings. I buy mine pre-cut at Whole Foods, and make about 9 or 10.
- 2-3 heaping tablespoons of white rice flour
- 1 tsp-ish chipotle pepper spice
- 1/2 tsp-ish garlic powder
- Salt & pepper to taste
- 1/4 cup of butter
- 1/4 cup Frank's Red Hot Sauce
Get a quart size ziploc bag. Put the white rice flour and spices into the bag and mix it up. Then add the chicken wings and give a good shake. The wings should be generously coated. You can add more flour if you need to. Now put them back in the fridge in the bag for about an hour.
Preheat your over to 400F. Once the hour is up, prepare the hot sauce. Melt the butter either in a sauce pan or in a bowl in the microwave (my preferred option). Once the butter is melted, add the hot sauce and mix. Now, one at a time, roll the chicken wings in the sauce until the are completely coated with the sauce. Then place the wing onto a baking sheet. Bake for about 45 minutes, flipping once half way though. You may brush with more hot sauce after baking if you really like hot food. Serve immediately, with gluten free blue cheese or ranch dressing.
