DIRECTIONS

  • For the sauce; in a small saucepan combine the butter, hot sauce, black pepper, salt and 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder; bring to a simmer over medium-low heat.
  • Reduce heat to low and simmer uncovered for about 20 minutes stirring occasionally; remove from heat and set aside to be coated with the wings later.
  • For the wings; in a bowl combine flour, paprika, cayenne (you may adjust cayenne to suit heat level) 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder, onion powder and seasoned salt.
  • Place the wings in a shallow dish and sprinkle the flour mixture over; mix using hands to coat evenly and completely (I use disposable rubber gloves for this!).
  • Cover the dish and refrigerate for 2 hours (THIS IS IMPORTANT, the wings must be refrigerated for that amount of time!).
  • Heat oil in a deep-fryer to 375 degrees F (the oil should be just enough to cover the wings completely, about 1-1/2-inches or more).
  • Fry the flour-coated wings in hot oil for about 10-15 minutes or until parts of the wings begin to turn brown.
  • Remove from heat then place wings in a serving bowl; add in prepared hot sauce mixture and turn the wings to coat with the sauce.
  • You may serve the wings as is or place on a baking sheet and bake in a 250 degree oven for 10 minutes.
  • Serve with a blue cheese dip.
