    Brenda Z's Note:

    I love wings! I have had many a mediocre wing, some decent wings, some really good wings and a few outstanding wings. I am proud to say that my favorite wing is the one I learned to make myself. After years of trying different techniques (baked, fried, boiled first (blech), various sauces, etc) I have come up with what I think is wing perfection. I have discovered that the best wing is deep fried, but first must be coated and left to "rest" before frying. Once fried, these wings are crisp, juicy and delicious as is. My favorite wing however is sauced with a hot and sweet concoction which is super easy to put together and is, I must say, a blend of two commercial sauces with a bit of butter melted in. I hope you enjoy these as much as I do!

    Ingredients:

    Servings:

    Units: US | Metric

    Directions:

    1. 1
      In a small bowl mix flour, cayenne pepper, salt, garlic powder, lemon pepper and paprika. Put into a large freezer bag and shake a few wings at a time in this mixture until they are well coated. Place coated wings into a large bowl or dish and cover with plastic wrap. Refrigerate for 1 1/2 - 2 hours (this is the secret step!).
    2. 2
      Heat oil in fryer to 375 degrees. While the oil is heating, mix the sauces together in a small saucepan, add the butter and heat until the butter is melted. Stir well.
    3. 3
      Fry wings for 8-10 minutes (depending on the size of your wings) or until they begin to brown. Lift fryer basket and shake off excess oil. Pierce one of the larger wings down to the bone and take a peek to make sure it is cooked; if not, pop the whole works back into the fryer for another minute. Lift basket and shake off oil once more. Dump wings into a large bowl and toss with the sauce, then turn out onto a serving platter. Enjoy!
