It’s Basketball time in my house, we are all into the NBA playoffs, and when we watch sports, I must make hot wings. I have been making hot wings since I was a teenager and I must say I make the crispiest wings around! Big Goo loves hot wings but he will only eat the ones I make.
Big Goo says he likes my wings because I fry them until they are nice and crispy and you hear a crunch when you bite into them. The secret is out, and I am about to show you how to produce nice, crispy, crunchy, hot wings.
It’s so simple you will wonder why you never tried it before. Take some chicken drummettes, rinse them and pat dry. Add to a bowl, toss in some beaten eggs, hot sauce, and my seasoning blend, mix well, add to seasoned flour and fry them up.
That’s it! You too will be eating crispy chicken in about 15-17 minutes.
Don’t forget my homemade sauce. This is simple as well.Cholula hot sauce, butter and lemon juice. That’s it! Yep, I told you it was simple.
Toss the chicken in the sauce and eat up! Don’t forget the ranch or blue cheese dressing for dipping!
