Is there any better food than wings for a Super Bowl party?
These wings are a little different from the usual Buffalo or soy sauce-flavored wings. This recipe uses a Russian dressing and horseradish-based dipping sauce and baste.
The amount of horseradish used depends on individual taste.
Game Day Wings
4 lbs chicken wings, disjointed & wing tip removed
1/2 cup olive oil
1/4 cup lemon juice
1 tsp garlic powder
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 tsp ground black pepper
16 oz Russian dressing
1/4 cup white horseradish (not the one with beet juice)
6 strips of bacon, cooked crisp and crumbled finely
Mix marinade ingredients in a small bowl.
Place wings in a 2-gallon (the largest size) zipper-seal bag. Pour marinade over wings, seal bag and invert bag a few times to coat wings. Place in refrigerator overnight.
Preheat oven to 400 degrees.
Prepare basting sauce by mixing all ingredients together in a medium bowl. Reserve 1/2 of this sauce for dipping.
Line 2 large baking sheets (such as jelly roll pans) with foil. Place a rack on the baking sheet and arrange wings in a single layer on rack. If you have a Misto, you can spray lightly with oil at this time if you wish.
Bake wings for 45-50 minutes or until almost done and just beginning to brown. Baste wings well with the basting sauce. Return to oven for an additional 10-15 minutes, or until nicely browned and glaze is caramelized. If you wish additional browning, place under the broiler for about 5 minutes.
Serve with reserved sauce and some arugula and scallions.
