“Bat Wings” and “Wizard Fries”

I had these when I stayed with my friend Bonnie. They are just crispy chicken wings and taters, but “bat wings” and “wizard fries” just sounds better.

Heat oven to 450.


small red potatoes
black pepper
olive oil

Cut up taters into fries. Put pieces in large plastic baggie with seasonings and oil. (You can use almost any seasonings.) Shake well to coat. Put in roasting pan lined with foil and sprayed with cooking spray. Put in oven while prepping wings.

chicken wings
ground ginger
5-spice powder
black pepper

Put wings into a giant plastic bag. Put in some ginger, 5-spice powder, salt and black pepper, and shake well to coat. Put wings in pan lined with foil and sprayed with cooking spray. Cook everything for around 45 mins or so. until done. I like to start the wings on the “wrong side” at first, then turn them to the “right side” so the skin will be crispiest on that side.
Serve with your preferred dipping sauces.
