Lemon Pepper Chicken Wings & A Review of T-fal's Actifry
We have a bit of an obsession with chicken wings. Restaurant wings are fried in unhealthy oils and full of grease, but you can make them at home with healthier methods that yield equally delicious results. I am loving my new Actifry from T-fal for making better versions of my favorite foods without the extra fat and calories. The Actifry uses a patented technology with pulsed hot air and constant stirring of ingredients with a paddle that allows food to cook perfectly without excess oil (you only need 1 tablespoon!) It's simple to clean, most parts are dishwasher safe. Best of all, it's very easy to use and comes with a cookbook full of delicious recipes to get you started.
You even get meal plan ideas. Bonus!!
This is a well-made gadget. All of the parts seems very durable and I love how easily it disassembles for quick clean-up. This is a big deal to me, because I hate washing dishes by hand. I'm guilty of throwing just about anything in the dishwasher.
Now for the wing recipe..... Lemon Pepper Chicken Wings Your favorite brand of lemon pepper seasoning (make sure it does not contain MSG) 2 lbs fresh chicken wings 1 tbsp olive oil In a large bowl, generously toss wings with lemon pepper to coat (the amount it up to you...we like a lot of seasoning). Place wings in the Actifry and cook for 30-40 minutes (the Actifry cookbook says 25-30, but that wasn't at all done enough for us (we like the skin crispy!) That's it! So simple and they turned out very tasty. They aren't quite as crispy as our beloved deep fried wings, but still very good and a lot better for you! Don't have an Actifry? No worries, you can still make these wings in the oven. Just toss wings in olive oil and sprinkle generously with lemon pepper. Bake at 425 degrees F for 30 minutes, turn and cook 15 minutes more until crispy. Serve and enjoy. *T-fal provided me with this product to review.
