How to Prepare Delicious Chicken Wings

roasted chicken wings

This roasting technique (oven roasting), which has numerous variations, eliminates the oils and is nearly ideal.


  1. 3 pounds of chicken wings, cleaned, dried, divided into three pieces, with the wing tips kept for stock.
  1. 1/4 cup of a mild spicy sauce, such as Louisiana, Frank’s RedHot, Crystal, or Cholula.
  2. 1 teaspoon minced garlic.
  1. Sherry vinegar or white wine vinegar, 2 teaspoons.
  1. Vegetable oil of a high quality, two tablespoons.
  1. 4 tablespoons of melted butter.
  1. Pepper and salt.
  1. one cup of blue cheese dressing


1. Heat the oven to 375°F. Combine the hot sauce, butter, vinegar, and garlic in a small bowl.

2. Place the chicken wings in a large roasting pan, drizzle with oil, and season liberally with salt and pepper. Toss to coat, then spread the wings out in a single layer. (Don’t worry if they’re a little crowded; they’ll shrink.) Roast the wings for 30 minutes, or until the bottom of the pan is coated with fat and the wings begin to brown. Use a spoon to baste the wings with the drippings, then carefully pour or spoon the fat out of the pan. If the wings are still sticking to the bottom of the pan, return them to the oven for another 5 minutes.

3. Turn the wings over, baste again, then carefully spoon out any remaining fat. Return the wings to the oven until nicely browned, another 20 minutes or so (again, they’ll release easily from the pan when they’re ready).

4. Raise the oven temperature to 450°F. Carefully pour off any accumulated fat, then drizzle the wings with the hot sauce mixture and toss to coat. Spread them back out into a single layer and return them to the oven. Roast, tossing once or twice, until crisp all over, about 10 minutes more. Serve hot or at room temperature, with the celery and blue cheese dressing for dipping if you like.

Honey Mustard Chicken Wings

Omit the hot sauce, vinegar, and garlic; combine the butter with ¼ cup Dijon mustard and 2 tablespoons honey. Proceed with the recipe, using this sauce to coat the wings in Step 4. Serve with lemon wedges.

Grilled Wings 

 Cook the wings on the cool side of the grill for about 20 minutes, or until crisp and just cooked through. Remove the wings from the grill and toss them in a large mixing bowl with the sauce until evenly coated. Return them to the grill over direct heat for a final browning and crisping.

What Makes a Good Mayonnaise

The Basics of Mayonnaise

homemade mayonnaise

Reading that mayonnaise is simple to prepare at home can seem like a lie to inexperienced cooks. But after you do it correctly the first time, possibly even on your first try, you’ll realize it’s not as easy as it seems. After that, you’ll have a sauce to work with that is a thousand times superior to what the grocery store has to offer.

Mayonnaise is made with raw eggs but you can also use pasteurized eggs. 

What makes a good Mayonnaise

Mayonnaise is a type of emulsion in which oil is mixed vigorously with water, eggs, vinegar, or lemon juice to create a thick, light-yellow cream. The flavors are balanced by a few simple ingredients. Really, that’s all there is to it.

.When you add the oil too quickly or, less frequently, when you add too much oil, homemade mayos go bad. You might put the oil in a squeeze bottle or a liquid measuring cup with a spout to assist you add it in a slow, steady stream. Alternatively, add a few drops at a time using a teaspoon. If you’re using a food processor, be aware that many of them have a little hole in the feed tube that was designed just for this use; you put the oil in the tube, and it drips out. 

Due to its neutral flavor, grapeseed oil is my preferred choice for most uses, especially if I want to add additional flavorings. If you want a taste that is distinctly Mediterranean, which is frequently the case, especially with the Aioli variant, use olive oil. However, keep in mind that mayo produced with only olive oil tends to break more quickly; opt for a mixture of grapeseed and olive oil. A mayonnaise produced from grapeseed, corn, or for a more prominent flavor,peanut oil, complements Asian foods better. I use sherry vinegar or white wine vinegar for vinegar, although lime or even lemon juice would give your dish a more vibrant flavor. Based on how you intend to use the mayo, all of these choices should be made.

How to fix mayonnaise problems

Although this is a fairly tiny thing, if you’re being cautious, check to make sure your eggs and oil are roughly the same temperature because temperature variations can lead to some instability. And despite what you may have heard, it doesn’t matter which way you whisk.

If your mayonnaise doesn’t emulsify on the first try, put a fresh egg yolk and more mustard in the bowl or machine after you’ve transferred the egg-oil mixture to a measuring cup with a spout. Restart, adding a few drops of the broken mayonnaise at a time like you would oil. After adding all of that mixture, you can start blending in any remaining plain oil.

Homemade Mayonnaise

Homemade mayonnaise

An emulsion of oil, egg yolk, and an acid, usually vinegar or lemon juice, makes up Homemade mayonnaise. There are various variations that incorporate additional flavors. The hue ranges from nearly white to pale yellow, and the consistency is variable, ranging from a thin cream to a thick gel.

The main equipment you need to make homemade mayo is a blender or food processor. You can also hand mix with a whisk if you don’t have a blender.

A Homemade mayonnaise Recipe

  • 1 egg yolk
  • 2 teaspoons Dijon mustard (optional)
  • 1 cup good-quality vegetable oil or olive oil
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • 1 tablespoon sherry vinegar, white wine vinegar, apple vinegar or fresh lemon juice


1.To make mayonnaise by hand: 

Put the yolk and mustard in a medium bowl. Beat together with a whisk. Begin to add the oil in dribbles as you beat, adding more as each amount is incorporated. You’ll notice when a thick emulsion forms. Then you can add the remaining oil a little faster. Depending on how fast you beat, the whole process will take about 5 minutes.

To make by machine:

 In a blender or food processor, combine the yolk and mustard; start the appliance. Slowly and steadily trickle in the oil while it’s running. You can add the oil a little more quickly once an emulsion forms (and scrape down the sides as required) until all of the oil is integrated.

2. Add salt, pepper, and vinegar then mix. Taste the seasoning and make any necessary adjustments. Apply right away. Alternately, store in the refrigerator for around a week.

Don’t be fooled by Megapixels. Higher megapixels does not necessarily mean better camera quality. There is more into what makes a quality phone camera than just megapixels. The only way to know a good camera phone is to read reviews. However, some high end phones were built specially to showcase its camera quality. Such phones include;  Google pixel series of phones, iPhones, Infinix Camon series of phones and the list goes on.

That said, most high end phones are fitted with high quality cameras for taking high resolution pictures and videos. 


High end mobile devices are fitted with very powerful processors.
