Bite with Belkys: Coal Oven Wings
Football season is in full swing and that means lots of chicken wings. One local chef is giving us his secret family recipe. Time to grab a Bite with Belkys.
The Restaurant: Scarfone's Coal Fired Pizza
The Chef: Danny Scarfone
The Dish: Coal Oven Wings
10 chicken wings, cleaned
5 Tbs. of extra virgin olive oil
1/2 cup of lemon juice
2 Tbs. of minced garlic
2 Tbs. of dried rosemary
2 oz. of garlic cloves
1 white onion
4 Tbs. of unsalted butter
salt and pepper, to taste
Garnish: Ciabatta bread and reggiano cheese
Method of Preparation:
-Start by marinating the chicken wings with olive oil, lemon juice, minced garlic, rosemary and salt and pepper. Let this sit in the fridge for about two hours.
-In the meantime, Chef Danny likes to make a little roasted garlic. First, drizzle olive oil on a sheet pan, and then add garlic cloves and bake them for about 20 minutes in a 350 degree oven.
-Next, prepare an onion topping. Sauté chopped onions with unsalted butter and add a pinch of salt and pepper.
-Now place the chicken wings in a baking pan, add the roasted garlic and onion topping over the top. Bake the wings in a 375 degree oven for 25 to 30 minutes. Make sure to turn over the wings halfway through the cooking process.
-At the restaurant, Chef Danny likes to finish the wings in his coal oven. But at home, you can finish them in your oven broiler for a few minutes.
To Plate the Dish:
Start with a piece of ciabatta bread and serve the chicken wings over the top with a little reggiano cheese.
Serving Suggestion: Beer
