  • 12 chicken wings, tips discarded and wings separated at the joint
  • 8 ounces cheese, cut into 24 cubes
  • 1 large egg
  • 1 cup unseasoned bread crumbs
  • 1/2 cup grated parmesan cheese
  • Salt
  • 2 cups tomato puree
  • 1/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper


Preheat the oven to 375 degrees . Cut a slit into the meatiest part of each wing. Stuff each wing with a mozzarella cube and pull the meat and skin back over the cheese.

In a shallow bowl, beat the egg; in another shallow bowl, combine the breadcrumbs and parmesan and season with salt. Working with 1 wing at a time, coat each with the egg, then the breadcrumb mixture and place on a greased rack set on a foil-lined baking sheet. Bake until golden, about 40 minutes.

Meanwhile, in a small saucepan, heat the tomato puree and cayenne over medium heat; season with salt. Serve with the wings.
