Make Your Own Game Day Hot Wings in Under 45 Minutes! [VIDEO]
You make think making homemade hot wings would make a mess of your kitchen, but the process is surprisingly easy. Especially if you follow the recipe I swear by.
Ok, it’s not technically ‘my’ recipe. I borrowed it from Food Network’s The Pioneer Woman. But I love Bree Drummond’s simplistic method of breaking down recipes so they’re super easy to execute. I’ve made wings using her recipe a few times now, and they’re always a hit! Best of all they take under 45 minutes to create. Give it a try this Sunday for the Big Game.
The Pioneer Woman’s Classic Hot Wings:
Prep time: 10 minutes.
Cook time: 30 minutes.
- Canola oil, for frying
- 24 chicken wing parts (12 wings separated into 2 pieces)
- One 12-ounce bottle cayenne hot pepper sauce, such as Frank’s
- 1 stick butter
- Several dashes Worcestershire sauce
- Several dashes hot sauce, such as Tabasco
- Blue cheese dip, for serving
- Celery sticks, for serving
- Preheat the oven to 325 degrees F. Heat 3 inches of canola oil in a heavy pot to 375 degrees F.
- Add half the chicken wing parts to the oil and fry them until they’re golden brown and fully cooked, 5 to 7 minutes. Remove and drain on paper towels. Repeat with the other half of the wing parts.
- In a saucepan, heat the cayenne sauce and butter over medium-low heat. Add the Worcestershire and hot sauce. Let it bubble up, and then turn off the heat.
- Place the wings in an ovenproof dish and pour the hot sauce over the top. Toss to coat, and then bake in the oven for 15 minutes.
- Serve with blue cheese dip, celery sticks… and your favorite cold, fizzy beverage.
