Recipe: Kettle Chip Crusted Chicken Wings

I have come up with a pretty clever way to save recipes that I want to make - at least it works for me. I created a board on Pinterest (follow me!) for Recipes I Want To Try. Then whenever I see a recipe on the interwebs - I post it to my board. And when I make my grocery list for the week - I go back and find a recipe to make for the week! As I try them and blog about them - I remove them so it's always fresh with new content! 

One recipe I had up for a while was Kettle Chip Crusted Drumsticks - it sounded good and being baked rather than fried would be a little healthier. 

First you had to do all the messy dipping - in flour, then milk/mustard and then the chips. This was a very sticky gloppy situation that did not lend itself to picture taking - so you just get the after shot!

Looking back, I think I needed to beat the chips a little more - I need to invest in a rolling pin. I ended up beating them with the back of an ice cream scoop. I used the "drumettes" because I am not a fan of the "wing" portion of the wing. (Who is?)

After baking them - I had little mesquite encrusted nugs of chicken. Not very appetizing on sight - I'll admit that. I was hoping the taste was better. :-)

And well - it wasn't too bad. I thought using the bbq chips would add a bit of flavor and it did. All in all - I liked them - but for all the work and mess - not sure I would make them again. They were very crispy though - so if you're looking for an alternative to fried chicken - the chips help that situation greatly.
