Another perfect balance of crispy, juicy, sweet, and spicy…let me introduce these medicated hot honey garlic butter chicken wings, made with infused hot honey by Good Day Farm. With their clearly labeled dosages and tablespoon for easy measuring, medicating any meal with GDF’s honey is made effortless. Try eating just one, betchya can’t!
Step 1: Dry and Refrigerate Wings Overnight
One crucial step in making sure your wings have a nice crisp to them, is to dry them out beforehand. I start this process by rinsing my chicken wings, patting them as dry as I can, sprinkle with some salt and baking powder (very important to use baking powder and not baking soda), and place in the refrigerator overnight. If you don’t have the time to refrigerate overnight, at least 3 hours of drying will make a huge difference alone.
The reaction of baking powder and salt helps to ensure a dry, crispy skin and brown them while they bake. Extra crispy skin and a moist, tender interior is the holy grail of chicken wings, and this process makes them taste deliciously like deep-fried chicken, but without the mess and is a healthier alternative!
Step 2: Toss in Vegetable Oil & Dry Rub
Once your wings are good and dry, you’ll want to toss them in vegetable oil -not a lot, 1 tablespoon is enough to just coat them- for baking. Mix your dry rub ingredients in a glass mixing bowl. With your fingers, rub your dry rub mix onto the oiled chicken wings. Make sure to coat all sides so they are evenly seasoned!
Step 3: Bake Your Wings
Preheat your oven to 400°F. Lay chicken wings on a baking rack over a baking sheet lined with parchment paper. Keeping your wings elevated on the baking rack ensures that they are cooked evenly, and not sitting in fat/liquids (this will also help maintain the ideal crispiness you’re looking for). Bake on upper shelf in oven for 45-50 minutes.
Step 4: While Wings Bake, Prep Sauce
As your wings are baking in the oven, combine your sauce ingredients in a glass mixing bowl, and mix well with a metal whisk.
Making sure to use glass bowls, and mixing with silicone or metal -not plastic or wood- ensures less loss of THC in your recipes due to absorption.
**Note: I used a mixture of regular, non-medicated local (Arkanasas) honey and Good Day Farm’s Hot Honey and added a little more Sriracha and garlic than the recipe states (I always measure these 2 things with my heart, no recipe can tell me otherwise!) (:
I decided to add some non-medicated honey, because I have little willpower in not eating all the wings in front of me, and wanted to make sure they remained at a medicinal and comfortable dosage.
Step 5: Toss Wings in Sauce & Bake For 3-5 Minutes
When wings are crispy, remove from oven. Place ½ of your cooked wings in a medium-sized glass mixing bowl and pour ½ of your sauce over wings. Toss to coat with metal tongs and repeat this process with the rest of your wings. Place your saucy wings back on the metal baking rack and bake for another 3-5 minutes. This will let the sauce stick to the chicken wings, and wonderfully blend all your flavors together.
Step 6: Enjoy!
Enjoy the combination of sweet and spicy, crispy and juicy chicken wings that are sure to please the tastebuds and have you coming back for more!
Cooking with Cannabis-Infused Ingredients
A good starting point for ingesting cannabis edibles is to limit yourself to <5mg THC ; even less if you are new to THC-infused food. It can have the tendency to be a lot stronger, more intense, and can differ drastically from smoking. For one, the effects can take anywhere from a half hour to 3 hours to fully metabolize, depending on an individual’s unique body and metabolic rate. In addition, because the THC is digested through your liver and can more readily cross the body’s blood-brain barrier, the high can be stronger and last longer. With that said, your edible’s potency depends on many factors; how it was prepared, the potency of your starting product, as well as considering if the strain or concentrate used in your infusion is indica, sativa or hybrid. To test the potency and effect of your finished product, try a smaller amount (<5mg) and see how that dose affects you after 2-3 hours. Titrate your dose as desired, and you can then use this personalized “standard” dose as a baseline for your recipes.
