Tonight is the Academy Awards show and David and I are pre-gaming the red carpet event with some delicious baked chicken wings. In Michael Pollan’s 7 Rules for Eating, he encourages his readers to indulge in junk food, as long as they make it themselves at home. Instead of ordering in greasy fried chicken wings, we decided to make our junk food of the evening a bit more “gourmet” and a bit more “healthy” in our own kitchen.
Arrange chicken wings on the baking sheet (making sure the plump side it up). Drizzle with olive oil. Season the with black pepper, garlic powder, rosemary, oregano, red pepper flakes, and salt. Bake in the over 25 minutes at 425. Meanwhile in a large bowl, add two tablespoons of olive oil, three diced garlic cloves, and a handful of chopped basil. When the chicken is cooked through and the skin looks crispy add them into the mixing bowl. Cover with aluminum foil and toss thoroughly. Top with as much parmesan cheese as you like!
It is SOOOO good!
