My Mom’s Mmmmarvelous Lepp’s Chicken Wings!Print Print Without Images
Being the Marketing Manager at Lepp Farm Market has many perks. I love food, and all day
I read or think about food – cooking it, eating it, enjoying it, sharing it and baking it. I couldn’t
begin to think about what career would better serve my always hungry family of 6 (yes, our
nanny happily trades my latest dinner creation for a quick empty of the dishwasher, which is
my very least favorite task on earth!) I love that whatever I can think of for dinner, is steps away
from the office – what a luxury!
My Mom, Kathy, has been making these chicken wings for as long as I can remember, and with
my two baby, but at 6ft. plus each, brothers around, I had to get them while they were hot, literally!
Mom always doubled or tripled the batch of wings and made them with a huge batch of simple homemade chow mein – and nowadays I would really go crazy and make these Baked Beans with Bacon as a side! Now these are a treat that my own three kids fight over and my boys aren’t going to eat any less than my brothers did, so I love anything that I can make it mass quantities!
We carry all of these ingredients, and simply ask our butchers to pack up a mix of drumettes and wings, throw it all in a freezer bag and into the oven. Most recently I took them to a Super Bowl party and watched them fly. It’s time for you to be a hit with these wings too!
2 1/2 lbs. of Lepp’s Chicken Wings & Drumettes
1 cup Soy sauce
1 cup Roger’s Brown Sugar
1 cup water
1/2. tsp sesame oil
1/4 cup vegetable oil
2 cloves minced garlic
3 chopped green onions
Preheat oven to 375 degrees.
Mix all of the ingredients together in a plastic freezer bag,
and add the chicken. Marinate in the fridge
for a LONG TIME – at least over night!
While being careful to be food safe with your chicken,
drain your the chicken from the marinade and bake on a
sprayed broiler pan (line the bottom in tin foil) for 40-45
minutes, turning when your chicken no longer sticks.
When they look likethe above picture, they are ready to be enjoyed
(and unfortunately, shared!) You’ll have to hide them!
Note that very thankfully this recipe doubles very easily.
Trust me – you will need to!
