Chicken Wings

We found a bar in Wisconsin that serves up the best chicken wings we have ever had. We saw the bar on the corner and decided, “Why not?” even though there were about a hundred Harley’s lined up in the front and a very large, intimidating man at the door. But we were very hungry and went in anyway. We ordered up a bucket of chicken wings and a couple of cold beers. We were hooked.

The bar had wing night on Thursdays and we always took the kids because the wings were too delicious and too cheap to pass up.  I would not normally take my kids to a biker bar, but the food was amazing! We had some great times in that place.

Everyone is older and busier now. We don’t get up to that bar as often as we would like. I had to figure out how to recreate their wings. It has taken me quite awhile to perfect this recipe. I tried a dozen store bought wing sauces before I eventually gave up. I came up with my own homemade recipe that works beautifully..

It is important to deep fry these wings. I got a deep fryer from the kids for Christmas a couple of years ago and it worked perfectly with these wings. If you don’t have a deep fryer, use a deep cast iron skillet or a dutch oven with oil, but I get the best results with the fryer. You will need three inches of oil (approximately four to six cups) in the skillet or dutch oven to fry these wings. Fry the wings in small batches, so they are not over crowded and you don’t cause the oil to spill over the top. Baking is also an option, but to achieve the proper texture, these wings need to be fried.

Chicken Wings
The wings I use for this recipe are called Drummettes. Regular size chicken wings will not work for this recipe, they are too big and will not come out well. I have used them and have even tried cutting them up, but they just don't work well. The grocery store sells Drummettes and they work perfectly. I use a light oil like peanut or canola oil. It is always better to start with a clean fryer. Frank's Red Hot Sauce is the sauce you will want to use, it works the best and they sell it just about everywhere. Whatever you decide to use, Tabasco sauce will not work.

Instructions
  1. Preheat the fryer to 355º Preheat the oven to 350º
  2. Place 8-10 drummettes in the fryer at a time and cook for 7 minutes. When they are done, let the wings drain for a minute and place them into a large bowl.
  3. When you are on your last 2 batches in the deep fryer, place the butter and the hot sauce in a medium size sauce pan and heat on low. You want it just hot enough to melt the butter, stirring frequently. Making the sauce too early will cause the hot sauce to separate. When the butter is melted, remove from the heat and set aside.
  4. When all your wings are done being cooked in the deep fryer, add half the hot sauce mix to the bowl and mix together until all the wings are coated with sauce.
  5. Place the wings on a baking sheet and cook for 10 minutes at 350º. When the wings are done take the remaining sauce and spread over the wings.
  6. Serve with blue cheese and/or ranch dressing and fresh cut up vegetables. I use carrots and celery. Enjoy!
