Goodfellas Pizza, Infuego Hot and Honey BBQ sauce mixture
Over the weekend, instead of making a new batch and working with my sauce ideas, I decided that it would be worth it to give my kitchen a rest and check out how my palate for wings has evolved since i got started. So, as we have done so many times in the past, we ordered from the pizza shop down the street Goodfellas Pizza.
They have on their menu (online menu here, it is a little outdated) several varieties of wings. Like before, we ordered 60 wings with ‘infuego’ hot and Honey BBQ sauces mixed. This was, as you may have read earlier, the inspiration for the beginnings of my venture into making my own wings.
Well, how things have changed. The wings themselves were overcooked. The sauce was sparse and not spicy. It was hard to believe that just a few months earlier these were the proverbial cat’s pajamas of buffalo wings to us. I ended up pouring my own sauce, leftover from a previous batch, onto them and throwing them into the oven. Once that was done they were delicious and all was right in the world.
PJ Whelihan’s Hot N’ Honey Wings
Tuesday I took a trip over to PJ Whelihan’s in Blue Bell PA as i have done in the past for lunch. I am always sure to order the wings, even though they are breaded, when i go.
I am typically biased against breaded wings because it is a cheap way to hide the quality of your chicken and it adds loads of unnecessary calories (almost 140 per wing). But, for breaded wings, these were damn good. The sauce was sweet and light and the chicken was tender and cooked the right amount (not too dry). It could have been spicier, but, overall it was a pretty good balance and left me wanting more with wing sauce all over my face.
