    Mysterygirl's Note:

    Someone asked me the other day how I made hot wings. Didn't have a printed recipe, just always did the same sort of stuff. Had to sit down and work it out. Here's the recipe. Hope you enjoy it as much as I do. Note that I put the minimum marinating time in with the prep time.

      Ok I may be the first to review these but I'm sure I won't be the last. MG, these are out of this world! I have tried many hot wing recipes and was always disappointed, but not in this case. I made these last night as kind of an appie dinner menu. Followed the directions exactly. It was just the 3 of us and all were eaten! I liked that they are still crisp and not soggy. DH kept repeating, these are great. His only comment was he wished they were hotter but that was my fault as I had 4lbs of wings and didn't change the recipe as I wasn't sure so next time I will up the sauce a little. I wish I had left overs!!! Fabulous MG!

      Excellent wings, MG. I served these last night and didn't make any changes except I added several dashes of Tobasco into the Franks sauce. Big raves from my guys on this one!

      These were fantastic! Frying the wings until they are crisp makes such a difference with the skin...they doesn't taste all soft and pudgy. I must admit I did ramp up the heat in the sauce until it was a bit "nuclear" and burning my tongue off, but both me and my husband loved every bite! Thanks for a great recipe!
