    I usually don't make any wings b/c there's hardly any meat to them and no one likes to pick at the bones. Sorry I can't help you.

    Two ways you can cook wings and still get the taste you want:

    1) Season the wings, then fry them without flour in oil, then baste them with a garlic butter sauce.

    *Garlic Butter Sauce: Brown a cup of fresh garlic pieces in a little bit of real butter, then add several more sticks of real butter to that. Simmer a minute or two. Pour sauce over wings and serve.

    2) Bake seasoned wings in the oven at 375 degrees (F) for thirty to forty minutes. [If you spray the wings first with a cooking spray, they will brown on their own ever so nicely]

    Remove wings from oven when done, and baste them in the homemade garlic butter sauce. Let me know how they taste!

    P.S. You can also buy the garlic spread in the jar and melt it slowly in a saucepan and pour over your wings.

    I am happy to read that there are people who still know how to prepare their own food. That is so rare today. Most folks would not give a hoot about how to cook, and I smile at the grocery store when I see "intelligent looking" people in the frozen dinner isle loading up. Supposed to be shopping around the perimeter. Yeah -yeah Mario....maybe in your world :-)

    Anyway, I suppose it would start with the size of the chicken. I hafta say that most chicken see in the Safeway these days are pretty scronie.

    Got this recipe off the Taste of Home Site; don't know if it's what you're looking for but it sounds pretty garlicky: (Not my recipe; I just copied it)

    African Chicken Wings

    1/2 cup butter (margarine)melted
    1/2 cup olive oil (canola)
    2 Tablespoons crushed red pepper
    2/3 cup fresh squezzed lemon juice
    4 large garlic cloves (crushed)
    2 teaspoons salt
    2 teaspoons pepper

    5-6 pounds chicken wings

    Preheat oven to 400 degrees. In a large bowl combine all the ingredients except the chicken wings; mix well. Rinse and pat dry the wings; place in the sauce and toss to coat well. Place on a rimmed cookie sheet that has been well sprayed with oil. Bake for 45-50 minutes, or until crispy. (place close to heating element last 15 minutes or so to crisp well). You may want to drain extra grease off before you put it close to the heat, I have better luck getting them crispy when I do that.

    I just made 8 pounds and made a double batch of the sauce.

    Here's another from (again, I just copied this recipe):

    2 lb Chicken wings
    3 Heads fresh garlic; separated into cloves and peeled
    1 c Plus 1 T. olive oil; divided
    15 Drops tabasco pepper sauce
    1 c Grated parmesan cheese
    1 c Italian style bread crumbs
    1 ts Black pepper

    Preheat oven to 375. Disjoint chicken wings, removing tips.
    Rinse wings; pat dry. Place garlic, 1 cup oil and pepper sauce in food processor or blender container; cover and process until smooth. Pour garlic mixture into small bowl. Combine cheese, bread crumbs and black pepper in shallow dish. Dip wings into garlic mixture, then roll, one at a time, in crumb mixture until thoroughly coated. Brush shallow nonstick pan with remaining 1 T. oil; arrange wings in a single layer. Drizzle remaining garlic mixture over wings; sprinkle with remaining crumb mixture.
    Bake 45 to 60 minutes or until brown and crisp. Garnish as desired.
