Bat Wings

     This recipe for Bat Wings from Mr. Food is great to make for Halloween or any time of the year.  This is the first time I have cooked chicken wings in my dutch oven, I was amazed by how juicy and tender they were, the meat fell right off the bones.  I used honey barbecue sauce and they were positively delicious.  Dry the wings well before placing in your dutch oven and try to arrange them in one layer.  You need to bake them for 30 minutes in a hot oven, I baked them in my 12 inch oven with 12 coals in a ring around the bottom and completely covered the lid with 30 or more briquettes.  After 30 minutes, using tongs, slather both sides completely with the sauce.  Bake for 30 more minutes or until they are lightly browned and cooked through.  If you're planning a party you might want to make more than one batch of these succulent wings, they will fly right off the plate.

     Lightly oil or spray a 12 inch or larger dutch oven.
     Thoroughly dry chicken wings and place side by side in prepared oven.
     Cover and bake at 425 degrees for 30 minutes.
     Meanwhile, in a medium bowl, combine barbecue sauce, mustard, hot pepper sauce and garlic powder; mix well. 
     Turn wings over and generously brush with sauce.  Turn wings right side up and completely cover with remaining sauce.

  1. PG, I like this one, I've done wings in a DO before but a little different. I may use legs and thighs instead, how you noticed how high wings have gotten,plus my boys eat ALOT. Like the name tho, for this time of year. Also, I don't comment on every post but I read them every day and appriciate you time and hard work. Just didn't want you to feel nobody was out there.
