Chicken Wings

Makes 8 servings of 4 wings

Total Time 1 hour 30 minutes

Ingredients

2 cups all-purpose flour

1 tsp. paprika

1/2 tsp. cumin

1 tsp. cayenne pepper

1 tsp. salt

32 chicken wings

1/2 cup butter

1 tsp. garlic powder

11/2 cup hot sauce such as cayenne pepper sauce

Salt and pepper to taste

Oil for frying (should be enough oil to completely cover wings)

 

Directions

Combine flour, paprika, cumin, cayenne pepper and 1 teaspoon of salt in a bowl. In a separate, large bowl, place wings and mix with the spices thoroughly. Place a plastic wrap over the bowl and refrigerate for 60 minutes (or longer!).

Preheat oil to 350 degrees F. You should have enough oil to cover the wings you are cooking completely.

Combine the butter, garlic powder, and hot sauce in a medium pot. Stir over a low heat until the butter is melted and the ingredients are mixed well. Set the sauce aside.

Fry wings in the 350 degree oil for 10 to 15 minutes, or until the wings are golden brown. Remove the wings to a plate with paper towel and pat dry to remove excess oil. Combine wings and hot sauce mixture in a bowl.  

Enjoy!
