MONDAY

Buffalo Wings

MamaLovesFood.com (MamaLovesFood.com)

Ingredients

Instructions

  • Place wings on a parchment or silpat lined baking sheet (they can be close together or even touching, but not on top of one another). If you are making plain wings, go ahead and dust with salt and pepper, to your liking.
  • Bake at 425F for about 15 minutes* on each side, until wings are browning and cooked through.
  • Remove wings and place in a prep bow. Pour sauce over, then cover and shake vigorously until wings are coated evenly.
  • Use tongs to place wings back on a lined baking sheet and return the tray to the oven for an additional 5 - 7 minutes, until crispy and perfect. If your oven has a convection setting, use it now for best results.
  • If you like your wings extra saucy, toss them once more in about a cup of buffalo sauce immediately before serving. Serve with celery sticks and blue cheese dip.

Instructions

STOVE TOP

  • In a large skillet, saute peppers, onions, and garlic in a small amount of olive oil until simmering and fragrant.
  • Add stock and bring back to a simmer. If using uncooked chicken, add it now and continue to simmer until chicken is cooked through.
  • Add enchilada sauce, and beans. If using cooked chicken, add it now, otherwise remove chicken, shred, and return it to the dish. Bring back to a simmer.
  • Stir in sour cream and serve.

SLOW COOKER

  • Add everything everything except sour cream to crock, stir well.
  • If using raw chicken, cover and cook on low for 8 – 10 hours or high for 4 – 6 hours. Remove chicken and shred, then add back along with sour cream and stir to the pot before serving.
  • If using cooked chicken, cover and cook on low for 2 – 3 hours or high for 1 – 2 hours. Stir in sour cream before serving.

INSTANT POT

  • Add everything everything except sour cream to instant pot, stir well, cover and set to sealing.
  • If using raw chicken, cook on manual (high pressure) for 10 minutes.  Allow 10 minute natural pressure release.  Remove chicken and shred, then add back to the pot along with sour cream before serving.
  • If using cooked chicken, cover and  set to sealing. Cook on manual (high pressure) for 3 minutes, then do a very careful quick release pausing if it sputters (or a 10 minute natural pressure release). Stir in sour cream before serving.
