Buffalo Wings & Loaded Potato Skin



Anyone wants to have some Tex Mex food?  I know I do..however, can't afford to have it in Chillies Restaurant, a popular Tex Mex cuisine in KL everytime I feel like having some. So, here's my homemade Tex Mex dinner with family.  I tell you, what you can find in the Net is amazing. Practically anything and everything.  Thanks to the wonders of the Net, my family is well satisfied and happy!! Too bad my BIL and SIL unable to join us - they don't know what they missed! Err...after seeing this, they'd probably say "oh..i hope she'll make these again and invite us"..lol..yes, my dears, i certainly will.

Apart from the Buffalo Wings and the Loaded Potato Skin, we also had Olio de Aglio (have I told you that this is my fav pasta?).  I'll not tell you how the olio was prepared as I'm sure you guys out there are more pro than me in preparing pastas.  There are so many versions and personal styles in preparing this, so I'll spare you the boredom of me telling you how to prepare a simple olio.

 Olio de Aglio


 Nope! This is not ice cream! It's mash potatoes.



Buffalo Wings (taken from Anchor Bar Buffalo Chicken Wings Recipe):
This recipe calls for 36 chic wings but I made only 12 wings..adjust recipe to your preference. The wings are baked in this recipe below but I opted for the authentic wings by deep frying it before coat it with the hot sauce


36 chicken wings pieces - I separate the wings and the drummets.
1 tbsp vegetable oil
1 tsp salt
1 cup all purpose flour
1 1/2 tbsp white vinegar
1/4 tp cayenne pepper
1/8 tsp garlic powder
1/4 tsp worcestershire sauce
1 tsp tabasco sauce (i used lots of this)
1/4 salt
6 tbsp Louisiana hot sauce
6 tbsp unsalted butter


Preheat oven to 210dC.
1. In a bowl, toss the wings with oil and salt. Place in large plastic bag, add the flour. Shake to coat evenly. Remove wings from bag, shaking off excess flour, spread out evenly on oiled foil-lined pans. Do not crowd. Bake for 20 mins, turn the wings over, and cook another 20 mins, or until wings are cooked through and browned.
2. While wings are baking, mix all the ingredients for the sauce in a pan, over low heat. Bring to simmer, stirring occasionally, then turn off.
3. After wings are done, transfer to a large bowl, pour the sauce over and toss well to coat.

Serve with celery sticks and blue cheese dressing on the the side.

Loaded Potato Skin:
(Serves 5-6 pax)
5 or 6 large potatoes - Idaho or Russet
Bacon streaks - fry till crispy and cut into small pieces
cheddar cheese
mozarella cheese
olive oil

1. Wash and scrub potatoes with the skin. Boil till almost tender, drain and let cool.
2.  Cut cooled potatoes into halves and scoop the flesh out.  Make mash potatoes with the flesh.
3.  Fill the potatoes with cheddar cheese, top with the bacon and mozarella.
4.  Place in a baking tray, sprinkle some oilve oil on each pot skin and bake at 210dC for about 15 mins or until cheese melts.
Serve immediately.

As for dessert, we had French dessert called Mixed Berry Millefeuille which will be the next feature on my post..here's the sneak peak pic..lol

  1. I like the baking style for the chicken wings as I try to avoid deep fry food these days. All the food that you serve suit my family so much and I may be a copycat to make them some, too! Cheers!

    1. I do agree with you. Baking is much healthier choice..and I have to admit I'm guilty here..heeeheee..somehow, deep fry taste much better. :)

  2. Oh such a yummy post! Olio de Agliois is a favorite around here too. It's usually my go to dish when I'm feeling a bit lazy because like you said, pretty much anything goes! (must have garlic, oil and parsley though:)

    The mashed potatoes do look like dollops of creamy but it's those chicken wings that really light my fire! The Anchor Bar in Buffalo New York, they say, is the "birthplace" of chicken wings. And, you just can't have Buffalo Wings without loaded potatoes.

    Thanks so much for sharing, What's Baking...

    1. Thanks, Louise, I shall try adding pasley the next time I make olio. Yes, the Anchor Bar did say they are the originator of the wonderful wings and they proved to be correct!

  16. The chicken and the potatoes look fantastic and they must be good too. When I lived in the States I used to eat many dishes like this. One of the things I miss more is Kentucky fried chicken. I tried to cook it but it's not the same thing.
