The Last Supper

The Last Supper is the working title of Her Campus BC’s weekly food blog. Since it is my senior year here at BC and the blog will chronicle my adventures both in the culinary arts and mixology (or just critiquing brands), I found the title fitting. For this first week, after having so many home football games, I decided to attempt to make homemade wings with barbeque sauce from scratch. I found my inspiration at allrecipes.com, but added a few twists based on recommendations found in the comments section. Overall the wings were delicious, but the sauce, while tangy and sweet, did not particularly taste like barbeque.

Wing Ingredients:

·       10 chicken Wings/Legs

·       3 tablespoons Butter/Margarine (Please – I used butter)

·       1 tablespoon Onion Powder

·       3 tablespoons Brown Sugar

·       3 tablespoons Worcestershire Sauce

·       ¾ cup Ketchup

·       2 tablespoons Mustard

·       ½ cup Water

·       Tablespoon Soy Sauce

·       ½ Tablespoon Hot Sauce

 

Note: Wings are missing because they were defrosting in the microwave, sorry!

The original recipe called for more sugar and ketchup, but based on the comment section I decided to cut some of the sweet out of the sauce, and go for something a little saltier. One person recommended adding soy sauce and hot sauce to the recipe, so I did just that. While the sauce wasn’t perfect, I’m glad I made the adjustments.

So here is how you make it:

In a small saucepan melt the butter/margarine. To this add the onion powder, brown sugar, Worcestershire sauce, soy sauce, and mustard. In a separate bowl dilute the ketchup with the water, then also add this to the sauce on the stove. Reduce the heat and let the sauce simmer for 15 minutes. In the last couple minutes add the hot sauce. (I thought cooking it may kill some of the heat but I have no real science to back this up.)

While the sauce is simmering, preheat the oven to 425 degrees. Put a layer of tinfoil down in a pan and then add the chicken on top. When the sauce is ready, spread about half of it on the chicken, making sure it gets on all sides. Cover the chicken with another piece of tinfoil and put the wings in for 20 minutes. After the 20 minutes are up, take the wings out and cover them again with the rest of the sauce. Put the wings back in for 30 more minutes (or longer – BC ovens can be slow). When they’re done take them out, let them cool, and enjoy!

Along with the wings, I also had one of my favorite beers, Goose Island 312. Goose Island 312 is an India Pale Ale. IPAs fall into the category of Pale Ales, but are distinct by their “hoppy” flavor. My dad is an avid IPA fan (it is about all he will drink), but I tend to stay away from them. Goose Island 312 though, for whatever reason, is the one IPA I have found I really enjoy. But to each their own.
