GF Cajun Chicken Wings

**found in UsMagazine February 4th, 2013 issue

A little late as usual.  I always post great recipes for great occasions after the fact, but guess what?  That means next year you will be set.  

I found this while reading Us, as sometimes they have great recipes that are either naturally gluten free or can be converted gluten free.

Superbowl Smackdown-Kick it off with great...

GF Cajun Chicken Wings

1 tsp. olive oil
3 lbs chicken wings, halved at joints
1/2 cup butter
1 cup gf hot sauce (some are not gluten-free, make sure you read the ingredients)
black pepper as desired
blue cheese dressing and celery sticks, for serving (Now, the dish on blue cheese?  Studies used to show it was not gluten free, but now it shows that it is.  However, some Celiac's have issues with the blue cheese family, so why not swap it for ranch or some other creamy concoction.  Processed salad dressings can be an issue, especially Kraft.  I have heard way too much about Kraft salad dressings stating the GF marker, but making people sick.  You may just want to make your own ranch dressing to save yourself a tummy ache after

1.  Heat grill to high; lightly oil the grate.  Grill wings uncovered, 8-12 minutes on each side or until cooked through.
2.  Meanwhile, in a saucepan, melt the butter on low heat.  Add the hot sauce, cayenne pepper and black pepper to taste.
3.  Place cooked wings in a lidded container.  Pour sauce over wings; seal container and shake until wings are thoroughly coated.  Serves 5 to 7.

So guess what?  This recipe, if using GF hot sauce, was naturally gluten free!  See how easy it is?  Just substitute a gluten-free product and you have a fabulous recipe!!
