Smothered southern wings - this is a recipe that I have received many compliments on. It is also one of my boyfriend's favorite recipes. When we first met, he (a butcher) was very much into Beef and of course, being a southern bread man - fried foods.

Well, that all changed when he met me. I enjoy an occasional steak and I love my fried chicken and catfish, but I also reminded him of "OTHER" great recipes.
