I'm not even a big fan of hot and spicy foods, but these were surprisingly delicious and not too hot so that you aren't crying out of misery and pain. Just the right amount of kick!
Here is what you are going to need:
-1 lb of chicken wings
-Canola oil (for frying)
In your Dutch oven pour in about 1-2 inches of Canola oil and heat it up on Medium Heat.
Next, if you bought chicken wings like I did....they are literally wings! I opened the package expected them to be all cut up and ready to go, but nope! It looked like someone had literally chopped off the wings of chickens and put them in my container. Kinda freaked me out!
You can buy them frozen and cut up already, in the freezer section. I found out too late, but save yourself!
So if you are in the situation I was in, cut the wings into smaller sizes by cutting with kitchen scissors at the joints and then they are ready to go!
When the oil is hot and ready to go, place the chicken in the dutch oven and cook the wings for about 25 minutes until they are brown and crispy.
Meanwhile, while the chicken is cooking, melt the stick of butter in a saucepan. Once it has melted add the Frank's Hot Sauce and whisk it together until well combined. Add a couple dashes of Tabasco and you are good to go on the sauce!
Once the chicken is done, place it on a paper towel to drain the oil from it. Then scoop up a couple wings at a time and place them in the sauce to coat the wings. Stir them around so that you thoroughly coat them and then they are ready to eat!!!
I made them with Jalapeno Poppers as well and man did Dusty and his friends love me! :)
