Fandom Foodie: Link's Flying Hyrule Chicken Wings / by Alex Boake

“I… I shall consume. Consume… consume everything…” -The Moon, Majora’s Mask

Ah, Zelda. I have to admit, I'm a little biased. The Legend of Zelda is probably my favourite game series of all time! Many an hour of my youth was spent killing Keese and Stalfos in Temples. Getting violated by Redead in the streets of Hyrule Town! Being berated by Ruto in the belly of Jabu Jabu! And that pesky Ganon! Always causing trouble! Many an hour was also spent running away from chickens, who, once enraged, are apparently immortal and more powerful than Ganondorf himself. Go figure! Here's a little tasty serving of revenge. A crunchy coating with moist chicken inside. You'd never guess it's grain-free! Check your local bulk store, such as Bulk Barn for the alternative Flours listed.

Link's Flying Hyrule Chicken Wings

Serves 5 to 6

Difficulty Level Normal Mode

Ingredients

  • 6 lbs Chicken Wings, Separated with Tips Removed
  • ~3/4 Cup Coconut Flour to start
  • ~1/2 Cup Tapioca Flour to start
  • Light Olive Oil
  • Garlic Powder
  • Seasoning Salt such as Herbamare
  • Homemade BBQ Sauce such as Pac Man's Cherry Sauce

Directions In a large and deep pan, pour in the Olive Oil until it is about 1/2 inch deep. Turn the heat to medium high and allow the Oil to become hot. While it is heating, take a large shallow bowl and dump in your two Flours, mixing them well.  The quantities listed are approximate, since you will be dipping the wings in the Coconut and Tapioca Flour to coat them, you will have some leftover which you must discard. Don't start with too much, you can always add more!

Take the Wings, two at a time, and coat them in the Flour mixture. Add them to the hot pan. Continue to do this until the pan is full but not crowded. Cook them until browned on one side, and then flip them over using tongs. If you have a splatter screen, it's a good idea to use it to cover the pan while they cook. Get out a baking dish or two. Once the second side is browned, remove the Wings from the pan and transfer them to the baking dish. Sprinkle with Garlic Powder and Seasoning Salt.

When you're about 3/4 of the way done cooking all the Wings, preheat your oven to 350. Continue this process until all the Chicken Wings are coated and par-cooked. You can layer them up to two deep in the baking dish, but use more dishes as needed. If you're a sauce fan, take one of the pans of Wings and drizzle it with BBQ Sauce! For fans of sauceless Wings, these are also fantastic!

Pop all of the par-cooked Wings into the oven, and cook at 350 for about 50 minutes. Protect your table from the heat with a trivet or two, and serve in the dishes you cooked them in. Who wants to do more dishes than needed?!

Enjoy your delicious, delicious revenge on those evil chickens.
