BEST Hot Wings Ever!

These wings really turned out better than any I have ever made and in fact rivaled some of the best I have ever eaten, so said my hubby!  Prior to making these the wings were always cooked entirely in the oven and these were first fried using safflower oil after seasoning for 6-8 minutes until a crispy golden brown doneness happened!

First I looked up a lot of wing variations and recipes and decided to try this cooking method but use my tried and true sauce.  The cooking method is adapted from, classic hot wings by Ree Drummond.

Hot wing ingredients:

3 pounds of wings
2 t. house seasoning (1/3 C. garlic powder, 1/3 C. black pepper,  1 C. kosher salt)
24 oz. safflower oil
1/2 C. butter
1/2 bottle Franks Louisana Hot Sauce
1 T. Worcestershire Sauce
1 lemon juiced

Preheat oven to 400 Degrees F.  Heat oil in a heavy flat bottomed pan ( about 3/4" deep).  Rinse, drain, and season the wings until all are uniformly coated.

Fry the wings in the hot oil until done and golden, about 6-8 minutes, then drain on paper towels.

Meanwhile combine butter, hot sauce, Worcestershire, and lemon juice in a medium pan and heat until the butter is melted, stirring until combined well.

Move the cooked wings into a glass baking dish and pour the sauce over all and toss to combine.  Cover wwith foil and place in the oven for 15 -20 minutes.

Prepare the carrots, celery, and blue cheese dressing and pull out lots of napkins and serve hot!

Yield 2-3 servings as a main dish or 6-8 as an appetizer or snack.
