Description

“Wings.” When that one-syllable word is uttered in my household, I know what it means. It means fall is quickly approaching, the smell of cooler weather is in the air, and college football has arrived. They’re a cinch to make, too.

Ingredients

  • 2 pounds (to 3 Pounds) Chicken Wing Drummettes
  • Canola Oil
  • 2 sticks Butter
  • 1 bottle Frank's Red Hot (12 Oz Bottle)
  • Tabasco Sauce, To Taste

Preparation

In a deep skillet or Dutch oven pour about 1 inch to 1 ½ inches of Canola oil. Begin heating the oil over medium/medium high heat. Meanwhile, throw your wing drummettes into a strainer and give them a good rinse.

When the oil is good and hot (about 360 degrees) place the raw wings into the skillet. Keep them moving with a pair of tongs so that hey don’t stick to the bottom of the skillet.

While the chicken is cooking melt 2 sticks of butter (1cup) in a medium-sized saucepan. To it add one 12-ounce bottle of Frank’s Red Hot Sauce (a.k.a. “Louisiana Hot Sauce” or “Cayenne Pepper Sauce”). Stir well until combined. Next you will add Tabasco sauce to your preferred temperature. I usually like 12 to 13 shakes.

When the chicken has cooked for about 25 minutes, take them out with a pair of tongs and place then on a paper towel to drain. In small batches begin placing the cooked wings into the sauce to coat. Give them a good stir until thoroughly coated. Place them in a serving bowl. Repeat until all of the chicken is coated with sauce and ready to eat.

Serve with carrots and celery and ranch or blue cheese dip.

This was my first attempted meal to ever cook after getting married. These wings have probably saved our marriage numerous times now 2 years later. SO SO good and simple to make!

Never thought I could do these on my own but your play-by-play instructions were easy to follow and turned out great! I wings weren’t crispy but I probably didn’t get the oil hot enough. They still tasted fantastic and I’ll be making these on those special football Sundays!!!

I LOVE wings, but always lacked the guts to cook them myself. This recipe turned out great, and the sauce was fantastic! My only question: Is there anything I can do to get them to be more crispy by the end of the frying process? My wings turned out chewy (still delicious) and fully cooked, my oil hot enough, but not super crispy. Is there a good technique to get that extra crunch?
