- cayenne pepper
- Worcestershire sauce
- egg yolk
- chicken wings and drumettes
- blue cheese crumbles and chopped green onions as garnish, if desired
Prepare wings, if needed. I use fresh wings, coated in oil sprinkled with salt and pepper. Bake in preheated, 400 degree oven for about an hour.
Step 1: Prepare Your Sauce
Combine the first seven ingredients in a small saucepan and place on the stove on medium heat until it is boiling. Stir the sauce often so that it doesn’t burn or stick to the bottom of the pan. Reduce the heat and simmer on low for five minutes so that the flavors can combine.
Step 2: Finish Your Sauce
Remove the sauce from heat and allow it to cool for ten minutes. Meanwhile, combine the egg yolk, water, and cornstarch in a small bowl and whisk until smooth. Whisk the cornstarch mixture into the cooled sauce and toss your slightly cooled wings in the sauce.
Hint: Make sure that you allow the sauce to cool off of the stove. If the sauce is too hot when you add the egg and cornstarch mixture you will end up with scrambled eggs in your sauce.
