I love wings and drumettes. Here is an easy weekend recipe that I think you’ll like. Remember that if the skillet gets crowded, brown the chicken in batches.


20 Chicken Drumettes Or Wings

1/4 Cup Olive Oil

4 Tablespoons Garlic (Minced)

2 Tablespoons Fresh Chives (Minced)

3 Tablespoons Hot Sauce

1/8 Teaspoon Ground Red Pepper

1/3 Cup Crumbled Blue Cheese

In a Dutch oven add water that comes to about 1 inch thick. Bring to a simmer. Place chicken in vegetable steamer in Dutch oven over water. Cover with lid.

Reduce heat to medium-low and steam, covered, for 10 minutes. Remove chicken from steamer. In large-size skillet heat olive oil over a medium-high heat. Make sure you swirl skillet to coat pan. Add chicken to pan and sauté 6 minutes. Turn once to brown both sides. Add minced garlic and chives to pan. Sauté another minute. Stir constantly.

Remove skillet fro heat and transfer chicken to large-size bowl. In small-size bowl combine pepper sauce and ground red pepper. Drizzle pepper mixture over chicken. Toss to coal. Sprinkle with blue cheese.  Serves 4

While living in France, Victoria studied French cooking from an expert Lyonnais chef. Victoria learned to love the local culture of preparing and enjoying fresh, seasonal foods. While in France, Victoria experienced the joys of shopping for local produce at the market and preparing fresh foods simply and beautifully in order to enhance the experience of the table. During her time in France, she says she “learned how to squeeze tomatoes at the local market” and “took everything in by osmosis.”
