Crispy chicken wings taste good no matter the recipe or sauce, but this cowboy butter-flavored version by Simply Mamá Cooks on YouTube just hits differently! It’s seriously good that you can eat a couple of pieces in just one sitting. You can serve this on the side of any of your favorite dishes or as is, and enjoy it with your family while watching your favorite show.
Cowboy Butter Sauce
Place the clean chicken in a large mixing bowl or baking dish, then add the mustard, salt-free lemon pepper, hot sauce, Maggi seasoning sauce, garlic powder, onion powder, and seasoning salt blend, and mix them all together until well coated. Cover it with plastic wrap, then place it in the fridge, and allow it to marinate for about 4 to 6 minutes or overnight.
Take the chicken out of the fridge 45 minutes before the cooking time, then add some flour in a paper bag, and dredge small batches of wings shaking them until lightly coated. You can add them straight to the pan or shake off the excess flour with a strainer, then deep fry them in preheated oil around 350°F to 360°F, and allow them to cook for about 8 to 10 minutes or until nice and crispy.
Remove the cooked chicken, then transfer them to a baking sheet lined with paper towels or on a wire cooling rack, and continue to cook the rest of the wings. Once done cooking, prepare the sauce. Preheat a deep pan on a stove over low heat, then melt the butter, and add the lemon zest, grated garlic, chives, lemon juice, Dijon mustard, and Tajin.
Mix them all together to combine, then allow the sauce to gently simmer for 1 minute, and turn off the heat. Transfer the sauce to a bowl, then give it a good stir to combine everything well, and drizzle it over the cooked chicken wings, dunk them, or toss them all together, your choice. Sprinkle them with some parmesan cheese and freshly chopped parsley, then serve, and enjoy!
