Valentine's Lunch

4:51:00 AM

(like... extremely late)

I wanted to share these lovely fried chicken wings my husband made us!
We pretty much stayed in this Valentine's day. We feel pretty darn loved 100% of the time, so we didn't feel a need to celebrate the holiday with anything special. For couples who don't get to spend a whole lot of quality time together, I think this holiday is a great excuse to make a dinner date and set aside a night (or day) to spend with one another.

ANYWAYS - wings. Joe made some delicious fried wings in our new fryer and I have to say, the man can cook. He made two sauces: garlic butter part (bottom left) and a peanut sauce with a kick (top). The bottom right is a store bought buffalo sauce and it was by far the less tasty of the three. 

My husband is the kind of man to throw things in a pot and experiment with food, so as far as recipes go, these ones are going to be a bit vague. I did manage to ask him about it though, and this is what I got out of him:

Garlic Butter & Parm Sauce:
1/3 Cup of EVOO
5-6 Garlic Cloves
1/2 Cup of Parmesan
1/2 Stick of Butter

Add the EVOO to a small sauce pan. Add the garlic cloves and let simmer for about 3 minutes. Remove the garlic cloves. Add the parmesan and butter. Let melt together. Season with salt and pepper to taste. Toss wings in sauce.

Peanut Sauce:
1 Stick of Butter
1/2 Cup of Peanut Butter
1/4 Cup of Sriracha (can be adjusted to fit your taste)

Melt the butter in a  small sauce pan. Add the peanut butter and let melt together. After combined, add sriracha sauce. After all ingredients are combined, salt and pepper to taste. Toss wings in sauce.


These sauces are SO good. The peanut butter is thick and salty and the garlic is just... garlic-rific. 
To make the wings, Joe bought 10 raw chicken wings at the grocery store, cut them into drumsticks/wings, and fried them in our fryer in peanut oil. The temperature of the oil was 375 degrees and he fried them until they turned golden.

I hope you try these - all the measurements were approximate, so you have room to play with the ingredients depending on what you like. This is some gluten free deliciousness for sure.
