Ingredients
  • 3 lbs. Party Chicken Wings
  • ½ tsp. Salt
  • ½ tsp. Black pepper
  • 1 ¼ c. hot sauce
  • ¼ tsp. Garlic powder
  • ¼ tsp. Onion powder
  • ¼ tsp. Smoked paprika, heaping teaspoon
  • 1 tsp. Apple cider vinegar
  • 1 ½ sticks cold unsalted butter, cut into pieces
  • Vegetable oil, for frying
  • Garnish: carrots, celery, ranch, bleu cheese
Instructions
  1. Begin to heat oil in a deep fryer to 375 Degrees
  2. In a medium saucepan on low to medium heat, add the hot sauce and spices to the pot (garlic powder, onion powder, smoked paprika, and vinegar) and whisk together. The should be steaming not boiling. Begin to add the butter in whisking after every 4 tablespoons. Whisk until the butter and sauce have combined. Allow to cool and you can pour in a mason jar with a lid and shake to keep the sauce from breaking.
  3. Place the party chicken wings on a cutting board lined with a paper towel. Season on both sides with salt and pepper. It isn’t going to seem like a lot but trust me its plenty.
  4. Once the deep fryer has reached its temperature, add 5-7 chicken wings at a time to the deep fryer and allow it to cook for 10 minutes. When the wings start to make a crackling noise, that is when it is time to take them out. They should be crispy. Immediately add them to a large mixing bowl and pour some of the sauce on the wings and toss evenly. Place the wings on a cooling rack until ready to serve. Feel free to toss again if desired.
  5. Serve with celery, carrots, and ranch and/or bleu cheese.
