last-minute “you invited who over?” wings

It’s 3 pm on Super Bowl Sunday, and some of us have done nothing to prepare. It happens to everyone; at some point in your life, you will have unexpected guests for some sporting event. My sister, Ms. Ines whipped up some last-minute chicken wings, for those inevitable times where you end up screaming “You invited WHO over for the game?!”

Ms. Ines’s Last-Minute “You Invited Who Over?” Wings

  • 8 wings
  • 2 (12 oz) bottles of dark beer
  • 1 cup Honey Barbecue Sauce (Sweet Baby Ray’s Honey BBQ Sauce)
  • 1/8 cup Hot Wing Sauce (Frank’s Red Hot Wing Sauce)
  1. Place wings in large pot in one layer so that wings are just touching. Pour in beer and enough water to cover the wings.
  2. Bring to a boil.
  3. Reduce heat to Medium-High. Let cook so that there is no visible pink, turning frequently, about 20 minutes.
  4. Transfer wings to plate, cover, and set aside.
  5. Pre-heat broiler on High.
  6. In a container with lid, combine BBQ and wing sauce.
  7. Lightly brush wings with 1/4 cup of sauce.
  8. Broil on High for 8 minutes, turning half way through.
  9. Place wings in lidded container and shake to coat thoroughly. Serve hot with your choice of garnish. Ms Ines recommends pineapple slices (grilled is best) and plantain chips.

Tips: For hotter wings, add a 1/8 cup more of wing sauce. Also, you can boil the wings ahead of time and keep refrigerated or frozen and begin at Step 5 with thawed wings for spur of the moment entertaining.
