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.
- Cut wings into pieces discarding tips.
- Wash and pat dry with paper towels.
- Place pieces into a dish or a large baggie, add ½ C hot sauce and seal.
- Marinate at least 30 minutes or overnight is good too.
- Heat oil in deep fryer to 350°.
- Place flour, salt, pepper and cajun seasoning in a large baggie.
- Drain wings but do not pat dry.
- Add wings a few at a time to baggie, shaking to cover, then remove.
- Continue until all pieces are well coated with the flour mixture.
- Make up more if you need it.
- Discard the bag.
- Slowly add 1/2 of the wing pieces to hot oil.
- Fry until golden brown.
- Remove and drain on paper towel.
- Cook remaining wings and drain.
- In the meantime, melt butter in microwave.
- Add remaining ½ C hot sauce.
- Toss fried wings in sauce mixture and serve with your choice of Ranch or Blue Cheese dressing and celery sticks.
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!
