Units:

ingredients

  • 5 lbs chicken drummettes
  • cooking oil, for frying (I like Canola)
  • 12 - 1 cup butter, melted
  • 1 tablespoon lemon juice
  • 2 (5/8 ounce) packets dried Italian salad dressing mix
  • 1 (8 ounce) bottle louisiana hot sauce

directions

  • Thaw and deep fry chicken wings in oil.
  • I usually cook 10-12 at a time in large skillet.
  • Place on paper towels to absorb excess oil.
  • Set cooked wings aside to cool to room temperature.
  • Melt butter.
  • Add lemon juice, Italian seasoning and hot sauce.
  • Cool to room temperature.
  • Place cooled wings in gallon ziplock bags and add sauce.
  • Seal and marinate for 1/2 hour.
  • Place wings on baking sheets and cook at 325°F for 15-20 minutes.
  • You may reuse the leftover sauce for dipping if you reheat it to the boiling point.
  • Good served w/ ranch dressing and veggie sticks. (Also see stuffed mushroom recipe).
  • You can deep fry, add sauce and freeze for up to three weeks.
  • Thaw then bake.
  • This is a crowd pleaser and goes fast.

    Very easy recipe, and it tastes awesome. My wife was making them for fathers day, when she got called into work for an emergency and left me with the chore of completing them. Not being patient, I tried the cooked wings in the sauce prior to baking them and was in heaven!! Waiting right now to taste them from the oven.... Great recipe!!!!!

    Love these; love the sauce! Yummy and just crunchy enough. Sometimes, when I want them quickly, I will buy a bottle of Buffalo Wild Wings' sauce and use that instead of the marinade - I'm cheating, I know, but they are yummy no matter what!!

    Instead of frying these, I marinated them over night and then added a bit of water to the bag, shook em up and put 'em on the grill for about 20-25 mintues. They were GREAT! Disappered super fast! Thanks!

    I would have to agree, as written the skin is little too soft for my liking. I even brought them into work after the Superbowl and everyone loved them!
