I have been obsessed with chicken wings recently. Just obsessed.
Whenever we go out now, I feel like we NEED to order the wings.
I love those little crispy morsels of tasty skin and juicy fall off the bone chicken. All wrapped up in a dirty your hands and face kinda way.
Chicken wings bring joy to my life. They make me happy.
And there are SO MANY DIFFERENT KINDS. SO MANY.
My absolute favorite wings are the garlic butter wings served at a little Vietnamese restaurant called Phuong Trang here in San Diego. Oh, and of course the infamous Pok Pok wings we had while in Portland (I swear I’m going to get this recipe down…it’s a work in progress).
There is one thing I hate about chicken wings. That’s when they’re gone.
With as much as I love wings, I really haven’t spent much time making them. Well, that’s all going to change. I have a renewed goal this year to get my wing cookin’ on.
AND, it’s Cajun food month so guess what this recipe is for? Oh you read the title of the post? Oh well, I’m going to tell you anyway.
Crispy Cajun style chicken wings.
How do we make these Crispy cajun style chicken wings?
It’s super easy guys. We roll them in a little mixture of flour and Cajun seasoning, then fry them for about 10 minutes. Then we coat them with the delicious buttery sauce that it only took us 3 minutes to make, and bake them in the oven for about 20-30 minutes, until they are ooey, gooey, deliciously buttery and sticky.
If you like to dip your wings in something, try this super awesome homemade Cajun remoulade sauce. It’s easy to make and great on all sorts of things!
And then we devour them alone.
Ok, that last part is just my personal preference. But you should try it. Sharing doesn’t ALWAYS make you feel good.
