STEPS
INGREDIENTS

The goal was actually homemade hot wings southern style, but no wings was available. A lot of pre-made ones was all over the Danish stores ... But we were heading for homemade!

We bought a lot of chicken drumsticks instead. To an American, I learned, this is not OK at all :-)

Drumsticks rinsed and dried
