Beer Soaked Buffalo Wings

It’s not a party until the wings come out. This weekend is one of the biggest parties of the year. It’s Super Bowl Sunday and if you’re throwing the party, then you need to be ready. Wings, beer, and sports! So pick up some Narragansett lager beer and try this wing recipe with it.

Serves:   10

2 cans Narragansett lager beer
5 pounds frozen chicken wings thawed
2 teaspoons ground red pepper
1 teaspoon salt
3/4 cup cayenne pepper sauce
1/4 cup butter, melted
Set aside 1/3 cup beer. Pour the remaining beer into a large shallow dish; add the chicken wings, cover, and marinate for at least 4 hours in the refrigerator; drain the wings.

Preheat the oven to 425 degrees F. Line two large rimmed baking sheets with aluminum foil; coat the foil with nonstick cooking spray.

Season the wings with ground red pepper and salt and place on the baking sheets. Bake for 30 minutes. Turn the wings over and cook for 25 to 30 more minutes, or until crispy and no pink remains.

In a large bowl, combine the cayenne pepper sauce, butter, and the reserved 1/3 cup beer; mix well. Add the chicken wings and toss until evenly coated. Serve immediately.

Preparation Tip: Be sure to use cayenne pepper sauce instead of regular hot pepper sauce, because that would make these really spicy!
