Curt's Italian Chicken Wing Feast (4 flavors) Guest Post

This was a real treat for me to have my son Curt, wanting to do this second guest post, his first post here, was an appetizer, Curt's loaded potato skins and this time a variety of different flavored wings. Over the last few months he has been inspired to make many different sauces with his Italian background and eating these types of sauces on some of my Chicken recipes. He has tried all of them on several friends and family get togethers. I honestly can't choose the one I like the best, they are full of great flavor and delicious, not that I'm partial, but they are pretty darn good even if I am his mom to say so and he has done a great job with all of them! Curt said to tell everyone, give them a try let us know what you think! Thanks for readin!!

Curt is getting the garlic ready that goes into all the recipes.
None of the wings have a thing on them, they are all fried first naked, then immediately submersed in one of the sauces.

Saute the garlic till golden, unless the recipe calls for roasted then follow the directions below.

Be very careful while frying wings not to put too many at a time, the oil will overflow. Six to seven at a time in a small fryer is perfect.


Each batch of wings is coated while still very hot right into the flavored sauces.
Sauces Recipes below are enough to coat 10 to 15 wings

Spicy Garlic Marsala Wings
2 fresh minced cloves of garlic
1/2 teaspoon cayenne pepper, garlic powder
1/4 cup butter
1/4 cup extra virgin olive oil
1/2 cup Marsala Wine
minced parsley for garnish
Saute garlic in olive oil, add butter, cayenne pepper, garlic powder marsala wine..cook down for 2 minutes . Stir hot fried wings into sauce. Sprinkle with parsley.
These happen to be Curt's favorite out of the four, he has always loved the flavors in these, I wasn't sold on them until I had them, and he made a fan out of me!

Wow, terrific recipes for wings! Your son is a wonderful cook, Claudia!

I will seriously vouch for these wings. Each flavor had its own characteristic taste, and I went around back and forth a couple times trying to figure out which was my favorite, but in the end, ate all of them and still didn't accomplish what I was looking for. I'll tell you want though, my stomach was surely satisfied :D...

Claudia said...

I'm handing the pots and pans to my son tonight! I love all the flavors - now that Marsala sauce would be a new one. I'd love to try that.
