Theedee's barbecue chicken wings

My little cousin turned 8 in feb(I know I am so late with this post) and I made these chicken wings for his party. One thing I know from babysitting so many kids in the past is that they love bbq chicken. So that's why I decided to do it. I mixed 2 different sauces for this.

Ingredients:
  • 1 bag of chicken wings (usually has about 30 wings in there)
  • 1 medium sized bottle original barbecue sauce
  • 1 medium sized bottle honey barbecue sauce
  • 2 tablespoons seasoning salt
  • 2 tablespoons black pepper
  • 1 tablespoon ginger powder
  • 1 tablespoon cayenne pepper(optional)
  • 1 tablespoon thyme
PS: You can make this as spicy as you want, I didn't make this spicy at all because I knew I was cooking for children and 90% of them don't like spicy food lol. 
Method:
  1. Wash chicken wings(if you have the kind of chicken wings that has the feathers on them please becareful and remove them all before seasoning)
  2. After washing, season with pepper,thyme,seasoning salt, then pour a combination of both honey barbecue and original barbecue sauce on it. Allow it to marinate overnight in the fridge,if you don't have that much time let it marinate in the fridge for an hour or 2
  3. Preheat your oven at 370 degrees F(188 degrees C), in a greased baking pan pour out the seasoned chicken, add more of the barbecue sauce to it and bake for 30 mins, add the remaining of the sauces and bake for an additional 15mins. (It's easy for bbq chicken to burn so you can reduce the temperature of your oven if you think its too high)
Will post the process pictures next time I make this. 
All ready to be eaten. Yummy yum!!

  • 1 teaspoon thyme
  • 1 teaspoon seasoning salt
  • 1 teaspoon cayenne pepper
  • 1 teaspoon parsley flakes

  • Oil for frying
Method:
  1. Wash chicken breast and cut them into long strips(see pictures below), season with all the spices. 
  2. In a medium sauce pan, pour enough oil for frying, and heat up the oil on medium heat.
  3. Take one strip of chicken put it in the egg,then into the bread crumbs, then into the oil(Repeat step until theres no more chicken left). Make sure the chicken is well coated with the eggs because that's what allows the bread crumbs to stick to the chicken. Fry until golden brown. Enjoy.

Theedee's chicken nuggets

I don't have any babies of my own just yet but I do have little cousins,nephews and nieces who LOVE chicken nuggets. Just add some ketchup and French fries and you will have some very happy children. And I enjoy cooking with my little sweethearts, because they sometimes love being useful in the kitchen. So today we made some small chicken nuggets. It can be fried or baked, depending on what you want

Ingredients:
  • 1 chicken breast
  • 1 teaspoon black pepper
  • 1 teaspoon seasoning salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon parsley flakes
  • 1/2 teaspoon thyme 
  • 1/2 teaspoon cayenne pepper 
  • 1/2 lemon
  • 1 egg
  • 1 cup bread crumbs

Ps: You can increase the ingredients to your preference, this was for a very small group of people. 

Method:

  1. Wash chicken breast with lemon, then cut into very small pieces(look at picture below). season with spices then set aside 
  2. In 2 separate bowls, break the egg in one bowl, pour bread crumbs in the other bowl(if you have plain bread crumbs mix it with some small cayenne pepper) 
  3. If you are going to fry this,it needs to be deep frying on medium heat. If you are baking this preheat your oven to 320 degrees F.  
  4. Pick the chicken,dip into the egg then into the breadcrumbs then into the oil(if frying), set aside in a baking sheet(if baking). Make sure the chicken is well coated with the eggs because that's the only way the breadcrumbs is able to hold on.
  5. Fry or bake until golden brown, ENJOY! 

Ps:If you don't have breadcrumbs at home, do you have corn flakes(YES THE CEREAL), crush a cup full of cornflakes in a bowl until it resembles breadcrumbs, add a little cayenne pepper and do as it says in step 2. :-) 
Step by step, this was fried but you can also bake yours
