Welcome back to chicken wing Monday’s! Today I present to you the glorious flavour of honey butter! I have seen a lot of recipes for honey butter glazed salmon, and let’s face it, I don’t eat fish! If you are following us, you know Colin has an allergy to seafood and I’m not big on fish. I have only one recipe for fish that I like and it’s my fish cake. ( check it out!)
But, honey butter I do love! And what else do I love? Yup! Chicken wings, you got that right! And of course I knew that honey butter flavour would work awesome with chicken. I wanted to create a nice thick crispy coating to the chicken wings for that honey butter glaze to cling on to.
So, I decided to do something I rarely do, deep fry. Yes, I know, deep fried food is not the healthiest way to eat, but that’s not the reason I rarely do it. The real reason is I’m always afraid to deep fry since I don’t have one of those fancy deep friers that are suppose to be safe, and yes I’m scared of deep frying in a pan, but this recipe was well worth my anxiety!
Not only did I fry the chicken wings, but I double fried them! Yes twice!!!!! Frying them twice gave them that awesome crunch and created the perfect coating for that honey butter glaze to cling on to and not make the coating soggy . The result is awesome crunchy, sweet, buttery and nutty flavoured chicken wings!
