When Paul stops at the grocery store for me he scans the meat department to see if he can catch any good sales. One particular day, family packages of fresh chicken wings were on sale. He brought home about six packs. They all went into the freezer until I could find recipes to use them in. My husband is 6’2, a strong man that’s not afraid of anything except running out of mayonnaise and ranch dressing. We buy large containers of both and always have at least 2 back ups in the pantry, just in case….
Making Ranch Chicken Wings for dinner for Paul was like a ranch dressing dream come true. Crispy on the outside, tender on the inside and loaded with ranch flavor, he loved them! I made them for dinner, but you can make them for the “Big Game” coming in a couple weeks. These would be a great appetizer to bring to a Super Bowl party! At the bottom of this post, I have more Super Bowl Party suggestions. Enjoy!
The recipe for Ranch Chicken Wings is at the bottom of the page.
