Ultimate Spicy Chicken Wings ~ lightly breaded, deep fried restaurant style spicy chicken wings. 

We already know the recipe to a man’s heart is through his stomach, but which recipe? Easy. It’s almost every man’s go-to meal he eats with cave-man gusto ~ the #1 food he chooses on nights out with the guys when words like whole grain and healthy are strictly taboo ~ Ultimate Spicy Chicken Wings.

Today the kitchen it turned over to Mr. A Gouda Life for the straight scoop on how to do wings right.

If you don’t own a deep fryer, they’re equally good on the stove with a deep pot and a thermometer. The inspiration for this recipe is from Bravado Spice with our own 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 even though you can get them from most pizza joints.
  2. We were the only people out of about 100 that own and use a deep fryer. Seriously.

Ultimate Spicy Chicken Wings Ingredients:

  • 10-12 chicken wings
  • 4 tablespoons of melted butter
  • 1/2 cup of Bravado Spice brand Crimson hot sauce (or your favorite 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.

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 them to soak for an 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 or 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 many stores or online. It’s 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.
