The football season brings the cravings for tons of junk food. Honey will start wanting wings and nachos and chili fries. So I decided to go for a little greasy happiness and make a Wing Stop inspired Sunday football dinner and for less than half the price. Both, Honey and Bebe loved the wings, and I am so excited to have found the seasoning for the fries because I absolutely love them.
When making wings, it's less of a hassle to oven bake then buying a ton of oil and frying them; I never know what to do with the dirty oil afterward and the flavor is still so good. When buying wings, buy the full wings, cut at the joints, and stick the wing tips back in the freezer (makes chicken stock later).
Even though I made the chicken and the fries, it was more cost effective to buy the cheese sauce and saved a little time. The carrots and celery were already in the fridge and so was the ranch dressing.
Have fun and enjoy!
