Ready to give the Colonel a run for his money (actually, its your money)?
Let's get cooking.
5 pounds chicken wings
1/2 c. butter (1 stick)
1/2 c. hot sauce (you pick your favorite)
1/4 c. soy sauce
1/4 c. balsamic vinegar
3 T. brown sugar or molasses
3 T. honey
2 T. lemon juice
2 T. celery salt
2/3 c. all purpose flour
1 t. salt
1 t. paprika
1 t. cayenne pepper (optional)
1/2 t. garlic powder
Vegetable oil for frying
Cut the wings into three sections and discard wing tips.
In a saucepan over medium heat, stir together butter, hot sauce, vinegar, soy sauce, honey, celery seed and brown sugar (or molasses) and slowly bring to a boil. Reduce heat and simmer for about 15-20 minutes, until reduced in half.
In a large resealable bag, combine flour and spices. Shake to combine. Add wings to mixture and shake to coat.
In a deep fat fryer or electric skillet, heat oil to 375 degrees. Fry wings for about 7 minutes, turning once. Drain on paper towels.
In a large bowl, add wings and then pour sauce over the top. Stir to coat.
This Homemade Hot Wings recipe makes about 4 dozen wings.
Perfect for your next sports gathering or party. Get lots of napkins!
