TGIF Wings

There's no such thing as healthy junk food, but there can be healthier junk food. These wings are baked, not fried and you can use fat free salad dressing for dipping. Guaranteed to be a favorite and a staple of Friday Happy Hour.

20 wings (flats and drummettes)
3/4 c. flour
3 teaspoons cayenne pepper
1 teaspoon garlic powder
wing sauce (Kroger brand or Sweet Baby Ray's or whatever your favorite is)

Dry wings on paper towels. Shake flour, garlic and cayenne in a ziplock bag. Add wings and shake to cover. Wings should be dry and covered in flour. Keep shaking until they are not stuck to each other in the bag. Spread them out inside the bag as much as possible. Let them sit in the fridge for about 3 hours. Put foil on a cookie sheet and put a rack on it. Spray rack with Pam. Shake off excess flour into the bag as you take wings out and put them in a large bowl. Drizzle with wing sauce. Stir to get a little sauce on all the wings. Put on baking rack. Cook for 30 min. @ 400. Turn wings over and cook for 30 min. more. Serve with celery and carrot sticks and ranch or blue cheese dressing. We use Kraft peppercorn ranch.
