Make It Yourself Monday

I love places like Buffalo Wild Wings and Wings Stop but lets face it your paying a lot of money for those little tid bits of chicken. Well the Hubby has been craving some wings and we cant really go to a wings place because we can't really tell what's in there that might not be so Atkins friendly for his diet. So Here are a couple of tasty wings recipes to make at home whether your on Atkins of just love wings as much as I do. Enjoy!

Lemon Pepper Wings
2 lbs. chicken wings
1/2 c. lemon juice
1 whole garlic clove (4 slices chopped) 1 tbsp. pepper
2 tbsp. salt
1/4 c. vegetable oil

Place wings in bowl; pour on Sprinkle on the salt and pepper then pour on the lemon juice, and oil; stir.
Marinate for 2 hours at room temperature, stirring occasionally to keep coated.

Wings may be barbecued or baked 20 to 30 minutes, basting occasionally.

Hot Wings
We bake our wings so this recipe is based on that
Bake thawed wings for 25 to 30 minutes (for a little extra crispy spray with cooking spray). While they are baking mix together Hot sauce below. After wings are done toss them into the sauce and coat thoroughly. We always bake ours for an extra five more minutes but if you want to do this be careful because hot sauce vapors can clear the house lol.

Hot Sauce for Hot Wings: ¼ c butter
¼ c hot sauce 1 dash black pepper
1 dash garlic powder

Mix the butter, hot sauce, pepper and garlic powder in a small saucepan over low heat. Stir together and heat until butter is melted and mixture is well blended. Remove from heat.
