Muncie Famous Recipe Wings - UGA Bulldog Style

Looking for new chicken wing recipes? That's what this project is about.  We make chicken wings for every UGA Game.  What we decided to do this year is use recipes from the area of UGA"s weekly opponent. This week's recipe is a "Lee's Famous Recipe Chicken' copycat
I wasn't sure there was a Chicken Wing for Indiana. Corn maybe. But Chicken Wings?  Turns out though, there is a chicken wing recipe considered local to Muncie, Indiana.  You probably know it as "Lee's Famous Recipe Chicken".  Founded in 1966 in Muncie, the recipe is known  there as "Muncie Famous Recipe Chicken."

The Muncie Famous Recipe Chicken is  a special blend of spices of paprika, garlic powder, onion powder, salt, and pepper. The wings are deep-fried and then tossed in a signature sauce that is made with butter, vinegar, hot sauce, and spices.
The  only thing we are going to change is the frying. We're going to bake them.  Watching the video will explain how we still got them crispy. 
Here is a recipe
• 1 pound chicken wings, tips removed
• 1/2 cup all-purpose flour
• 1 teaspoon paprika
• 1 teaspoon garlic powder
• 1 teaspoon onion powder
• 1 teaspoon salt
• 1/2 teaspoon black pepper
• 1/4 cup butter, melted
• 1/4 cup vinegar
• 1/4 cup hot sauce
• 1/4 cup water
1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
2. In a shallow bowl, combine flour, paprika, garlic powder, onion powder, salt, and pepper.
3. Dip chicken wings in the flour mixture to coat.
4. Put them in the refrigerator for at least an hour. Then take coat them again, and return to the fridge. 
5. After another hour (or so) take them out of the fridge and place them on a low rack on a baking sheet and bake for 25 minutes.
6. Remove the wings from the oven, turn the temp up to 400 F, and turn the wings over.  Return to oven for 15 minutes.  At fifteen minutes, turn them down to  375 for the next 10 minutes. 
7. While the chicken is finishing up melt butter over medium heat in a sauce pan.
8. Add the hot sauce, and water to the melted butter.  Add YOUR preference of hot sauce. If you want to use mild, use mild. Whatever level of heat that you prefer. 
9. Bring this mix to a simmer and cook for 5 minutes, or until thickened.
Toss the cooked chicken wings in the sauce and serve.

About Potato Chip Sandwich

According to some people, men can't tell time, can't follow directions and can't cook. That's simply not true. The owner and author of the site, me..  can cook. This site is simply a way for me to keep up with my recipes without putting it into my other 10 or so blogs. Everything is Google-ized, so it's connected to all my other stuff. This site gets it's name from road trips when I was in my 20's. By the time we would head home all we could afford was a loaf of bread and some potato chips.
