Man food was the theme on New Year's Day, numbing football on all day so we tried Ina's chicken wings from her Barefoot Contessa Family Style cookbook, released in 2002.
I say "we" because husband needed to separate the wings which I find disgusting, that is the most time consuming part of making wings at home. Homemade wings are so much better than sports bars because they are not deep fried. I usually bake them but Ina's recipe calls for broiling them for 8 minutes or so on each side. So much faster and the broiling creates beautiful caramelization. I added much more Frank's hot sauce than her recipe calls for, the only change I made. The men loved Ina's wings, very moist and succulent! After flipping through several of her cookbooks yesterday, she has a ton of man food recipes. This will make husband and son happy as I venture through Ina's cookbooks this year.
