Chicken Wings (hot 'n spicy)

In the spirit of the superbowl (wah, the Patriots should have been playing) I made some chicken wings for the boys with big appetites in my family (only 2 but they eat with a very hearty appetite)!!  Also not sure if I'm happy that they enjoyed them so much, I already have special requests to make them more often...

I did three different types of wings.  One batch had this hot sauce recipe (my guys like 'em hot!), one batch had a honey mustard (my favorite) and the third batch had basic BBQ sauce. 

I also made potato salad but have no pictures to show for it.  To be honest, I'm lucky I managed to snap a few pictures of the wings before they all disappeared!  

2 pounds chicken wings
Salt/pepper/seasoning salt
1 teaspoon chili flakes
1/3 cup oil
1/3 cup hot sauce
1 tablespoon butter
Serve with:
Blue Cheese or Ranch dressing
Celery/Carrot sticks

First Step:
Remove tips and cut wings at joint.  Heat the oil and fry the wings until crisp, about 10 minutes.  Halfway through cooking, add seasonings to taste.  I split my wings into two batches so they could cook evenly without being squished.

Remove chicken from skillet or deep fryer and drain on paper towels.

Next, melt the butter in a large skillet. Stir in the hot pepper sauce. Season with salt and pepper to taste.

Add cooked chicken to sauce and stir over low heat to coat. The longer the wings simmer in the sauce, the hotter they will be.

 Bake at 350 degrees for 10 minutes (this allows the sauce to really stick to your wings and dry up a little). 

Tip:  Line cookware with foil for easy clean-up.


Serve warm.
