Author: Basil and Bubbly


  • 8 Whole Chicken Wings roughly 2 lbs
  • 1 cup Valentina
  • 2 tablespoons Butter melted
  • Cooking Spray


  • Preheat the oven to 475 degrees.
  • Bring 8 cups of water to a boil in a large pan. While you're waiting for the water to boil, using a very sharp knife or kitchen shears ( hint hint use the shears if you have them -- makes it a lot easier! ), remove the "tips" of the wings and discard them, and then separate the drummies from the flats by cutting directly through the joint.
  • Add the newly separated chicken wings to the boiling water, and boil for 10 minutes.
  • Drain the wings, and let rest until cool enough to handle.
  • Remove the skin from the wings. Expect this step to take at least 15 to 30 minutes, depending on how surly your wings are feeling that day.
  • Pat the skinless wings dry.
  • In a bowl large enough to hold all of the wings, mix half of the melted butter with half of the Valentina ( 1 tablespoon of melted butter, ½ cup of Valentina ), and toss the wings in that sauce. Discard any remaining sauce.
  • Line a baking tray with parchment paper ( or foil ), and set a wire rack on top. Spray the rack with cooking spray.
  • Arrange the wings on the rack, and spray them with cooking spray.
  • Bake for 7 minutes. Flip all of the wings, and bake for another 3 minutes, then turn your oven to "Broil" ( high, if that option is available).
  • Broil for 4 minutes, then remove the wings from the oven.
  • Mix up a second batch of sauce in a clean bowl, by mixing the rest of the Valentina ( ½ cup ) with the rest of the melted butter ( 1 Tablespoon ).
  • Toss the cooked wings in the second batch of sauce, and serve!
