A couple of weeks ago I made Buffalo Wild Wings Honey BBQ Chicken Wings for me and the kids when my husband was out of town, and they were so fun to make, and SO delicious, my husband asked if next time I would make his favorite Buffalo Wild Wings Original Hot kind. I always sneak one or two of his wings when we go there, {it’s about all the heat I can handle}, and these wings tasted the same! I loved them (well, a couple of them), he loved them… but what surprised me is how much my 7-year old daughter loved them! Now I have learned how fast, inexpensive, easy and delicious home made wings are, i’m feeling kinda silly for eating out there so much :-/ Now if I can just learn how to make Wing Stop’s fries….

Ingredients:
Recipe adapted from keeprecipes 
1 pound chicken wings
Oil for frying
{for the sauce}
1 cup Franks Red Hot Cayenne Pepper Sauce
1/3 Cup olive oil
1tsp granulated sugar
1 ½tsp cayenne pepper
½tsp garlic powder
½tsp Worcestershire sauce
1/8 tsp coarse ground black pepper
Pinch sea salt
2tsp water
2tsp cornstarch

Directions:
Preheat the oil to 375degF. To prepare the chicken: cut the joint that separates the wing from the drumstick then snip off the tip of the wing. Trim any excess fat, then pat dry with a paper towel.

Add all the ingredients for the sauce to a blender, and process until smooth. Add to a pan and stir over medium-high heat until the sauce comes to a simmer. For a thinner sauce, take off the heat, for a thicker sauce, simmer for a minute or two, stirring constantly.

Fry the chicken wings for 10-15 mins, until crisp on the outside. Place on a paper-towel lined plate to drain off excess oil.

Toss the chicken wings in the sauce to coat, then plate with some celery and carrot sticks.
