Ultimate Spicy Chicken Wings

Appetizers & Beverages, Dinner | January 30, 2017 | By

Do you want to know the recipe to a man’s heart? Ask any man what his favorite finger-licking (I mean this literally) go-to meal is that he eats with cave-man gusto ~ the #1 food he chooses on nights he’s out with the guys and words like whole grain and healthy are strictly taboo and he’ll tell you it’s wings ~ Ultimate Spicy Chicken Wings. So today we turned over the A Gouda Life kitchen to my husband for the straight scoop from the horse’s mouth on how to do wings right.  Ultimate Spicy Chicken Wings: light, crispy breading, unique hot/tangy sauce for a flavor that keeps 'em coming back for more.

Wings are really easy to make at home so even though you can get them at most pizza joints and many stores these days including Wal-Mart, wings made at home just taste better. If you don’t own a deep fryer, they’re equally good on the stove with a deep pot and a thermometer. The recipe I’m sharing is from Bravado Spice with a couple of minor adjustments.

A couple of months ago my husband and I went to the Fabulous Food Show in Cleveland where big name chefs like Michael Symon, Melissa d’Arabian and Buddy The Cake Boss Valastro showed off their skills. We had a really good time, tasted some amazing food and learned a couple of things:

  1. The best tasting spicy chicken wings are made at home. 
  2. We were the only people out of about 100 that own and use a deep fryer. Seriously.

Ultimate Spicy Chicken Wings: light, crispy breading, unique hot/tangy sauce for a flavor that keeps 'em coming back for more.

Ingredients:

  • 10-12 chicken wings
  • 4 tablespoons of melted butter
  • 1/2 cup of Bravado Spice brand Crimson hot sauce
  • ¼ cup of corn starch
  • 1 quart of vegetable or canola oil for frying

Instructions:

Chicken wings usually come from the grocery store with the  ‘drummy’ and ‘flapper’ attached. Most people are starkly divided ~ Camp Drummy and Camp Flapper. Anyone who says they don’t care are just trying to be polite. Which part of the chicken wing do you prefer?

Using a sharp knife, separate the drummy from the flapper ~ or flapper from drummy~ then add them to a bowl of ice water and allow the to soak for one hour.

Drain the water and pat the wings dry using paper towels. Add cornstarch to a good size bowl and toss the wings until they’re coated.

Heat the oil in a fryer or deep pot to 350° and carefully add the wings to the oil without overcrowding, working in batches if necessary, cooking for 18-20 minutes until the wings are cooked through and golden brown.

Remove the wings from the oil and drain on a paper towel.

Mix the melted butter and Bravado Spice Crimson Hot Sauce (or your favorite sauce) in a bowl and toss the wings in the mixture until they’re completely coated. Bravado Spice‘s is available in limited stores, but it’s simple to order online like we did. Hot and tangy with its own unique flavor.

I like mine dipped in creamy ranch or a bold blue cheese dressing ~ a combination that gives me that unexplainable need to keep reaching for more.

    I never met a buffalo wing I didn’t like but these are exceptional. The corn starch provides a light crispy coat and the Bravado sauce a unique flavor with just the right heat. Throw in some French fries and your favorite beverage while you enjoy good company and super bowl Sunday.
