These are a family favorite! The wings turn out crispy every time. You can omit or add more garlic, depending on your taste.
- 2 lbs chicken wings
- 1 cup flour
- 2 cups vegetable oil
- 1 1⁄2 tablespoons ground black pepper
- 1 1⁄2 tablespoons seasoning salt
- 1 cup margarine
- 1⁄2 cup Frank's red hot sauce
- 2 garlic cloves
- Thaw wings and pat dry, set aside.
- Preheat Oven to 350 Degrees.
- Combine flour, pepper, and seasoned salt in a medium-sized bowl.
- Add oil to large skillet and heat on medium-high.
- When oil is ready for frying, use tongs to coat wings in flour/pepper/salt mixture and add to pan.
- Be sure to add wings to pan slowly as to not bring doing the temperature of the oil too quickly.
- Fry wings until slightly golden on each side.
- You will move wings to a baking sheet with either a cooling rack or baking grid on top of the sheet. You can line with foil as well to minimize cleanup. Basically, you want the wings to cook and the oil to drip down to the pan, so whatever you need to use to do that will work!
- Place wings in oven for 30-40 minutes.
- You should remove when they are crispy enough for you--I like mine crispy so I tend to go for 40-45 minutes.
- While wings are in the oven, prepare the sauce.
- Melt 1/2 cup of margarine in a small saucepan.
- Add garlic, finely chopped.
- Sautee garlic in butter for 3-4 minutes on medium-low heat.
- Add hot sauce.
- When wings are done, remove from oven and let them rest for 5 minutes or so.
- Use tongs and coat wings in sauce and plate.
- Enjoy with ranch or blue cheese dressing!
