Game Day Recipes – Chicken Wings and Cajun Pasta Salad

by Aggies Kitchen on October 15, 2008

Short and sweet post for me today…one of those weeks!

I was able to get the recipe for those tasty wings we had over the weekend.

Thanks Suzette and Josh!

Chicken Wings
Recipe from Suzette

2 lbs chicken wings
1 cup olive oil
1 1/2 tsp dry lemon pepper seasoning salt
1 1/2 tsp dry dill seasoning (Or look for a seasoning called “It’s A Dilly” which has it all)
Dry Ranch Dressing Packet
Fresh Ground Pepper

Combine oil, lemon pepper seasoning and dill seasoning in bowl. Pour over chicken wings and let marinate for 4-6 hours.

Place wings in an oven pan covered w/foil and sprinkle liberally with Dry Ranch Dressing packet and fresh ground pepper….cook 425 degree for about 35-40 minutes. Watch them closely! Serve with Ranch dressing and cut celery.


And here’s the recipe for the pasta salad I put together over the weekend. Lots of crunchy veggies and great flavor!

Cajun Pasta Salad
Recipe by Aggie

1/2 box of cooked and cooled whole wheat pasta (bow ties or penne)
4 – 6 Andouille sausages, grilled and cut in large pieces
1 cup of corn (grilled and cut off cob)
bunch of green onions, chopped
1 red bell pepper, chopped
1 poblano pepper, chopped
bunch grape tomatoes, halved
can of red kidney beans, drained and rinsed (optional)

Cajun Dressing
1 cup of mayonnaise (I used light)
3 tsp of Cajun seasoning
2-3 dashes of Worcestershire Sauce
2 garlic cloves, minced
juice from 1 large lemon
Salt and Pepper to taste

Combine ingredients for salad in large bowl. In small bowl, whisk together ingredients for dressing. Fold dressing into pasta salad and combine gently. Enjoy!

Adding dill to the wings sounds really great. The cajun pasta salad has all my favorites!

Both sound delicious! My football team is off this weekend, but I’ll have to save these recipes for the next!

Oh Aggie, you did goooood! This wing recipe is unlike any I’ve seen before, and you know I’ll have to try it. I love that pasta salad, too. With that flavorful sausage and the grilled corn! Oh, I can just imagine the first bite. YUM!

I like the way you did the wings. I’m getting sick of always just having buffalo wings, I will have to try this version.

how much of the dill do you put in? the reciped only says 1 1/2. i’m thinking maybe 1 1/2 tsp. is that right.

Aggie October 16, 2008 at 6:09 pm

I just updated the dill amount to 1 1/2 tsp! Oops! Thanks Colleen!

I am hopelessly addicted to chicken wings whenever they are presented although I could easily get sidetracked by your cajun pasta. Now that sounds really delicious. Thanks for your comment about the biscotti. I also loved the cranberry pistachio one but I enjoyed Giada’s Chocolate anise biscotti better. I think the chocolate is what gets me each time!

I’m having one of those weeks too, and am desperately trying to catch up so your brevity is much appreciated, but only this once!

It all looks delicious as usual and thanks for all of your comments and well wishes, you’re too good to me!

Yum Aggie,
It all looks terrific. I’d be happy eating this any day of the week!
