The Hot Chicken Wings, The Skinny Kind

Wednesday, September 30, 2015

wasn't sure if I should post this or not considering the lack of photos I got from the meal, I decided I would because I think it's too good to pass up! By the time I went to try to take some photos, Jose was already enjoying the meal. 

Jose's really big on the buffalo wings at Buffalo Wild Wings so naturally I went to Pinterest in search for a good at home recipe for wings with the buffalo taste, not necessarily a wing that would replicate the ones from BWW.  Then I paired the wings with two of his favorite sides, baked potato and asparagus. I finished it off with Banana Bread and he made us some coffee.

The WingsSkinny Hot Wings is a recipe by Skinny Mom. Lower in calories than your typical wing. Shhhh, don't tell Jose! He said they were delicious, not sure he noticed they were "lower in fat and calories". These were surprisingly easy to make, except for the fact that all four of the foods I prepared were baked, the kitchen felt like a furnace.

The Asparagus: These were simple enough, I cut off the bottoms, placed an even layer in a pan, drizzled some oil, added a little salt and pepper and baked for 8-10 min at 400 degrees. I found a recipe for you in case you want some expert knowledge! Oven Roasted Asparagus, I skipped the orange.

The Potato: Scalloped Hasselback Potatoes-These gave me hell. Looked super easy in the photo but it was difficult to cut the potato in slices without cutting all the way through. I didn't have time to freeze the butter so it was super soft and trying to insert slices into the cuts I made was extremely difficult and to be honest I got a little frustrated. My tip: definitely freeze the butter if you will try this recipe and I would cut the potato in slices, without cutting all the way through but I would wiggle the knife side to side to open up the space more. You'll see what I mean when you see the post. You could also see the slices in the vlog.

The Banana Bread: I always use this recipe and everyone loves the way it comes out! 

Yes, this is my only photo! I know, blogger fail.

What did you have for dinner? Do you love buffalo wings? (I don't).
