How to Make Hot Chicken Wings

Making hot wings is a process that many people find challenging, so many don't try it. But with a good recipe and a little patience, you can make fresh hot wings for family and friends. They're great deep fried or grilled.

Instructions

Step 1

Lay chicken wings out on paper towels and pat them completely dry. Season them liberally with salt on both sides.

Step 2

Combine dry ingredients in large mixing bowl. Add chicken and toss to coat heavily with mixture.

Step 3

Refrigerate the chicken for at least 2 hours.

Step 4

Let chicken come back up to room temperature. Heat oil over medium high heat in large frying pan. When oil reaches proper temperature, lay five pieces of chicken in hot oil and turn when golden brown.

Step 5

Serve with sides of celery along with ranch or blue cheese dressing, once the chicken is fully cooked. Or pull the meat off the bones and use it however you like.

Tips and Warnings

The longer the chicken sets, the more like the spices it will taste. Let chicken set at least 2 hours, and as many as 24 hours. Make sure that you keep it refrigerated, and out of the "danger zone." Once you put the spices on the wings, never let them come to room temperature until you're ready to fry them.

Things You'll Need

36 chicken wings, 2 cups vegetable oil, 2 tsp. minced garlic, 1 tbsp. hot paprika, 1 tbsp. ground cumin, 1 tbsp. dry mustard, 1 tbsp. ground coriander, 1 tbsp. grated lemon peel, 1 tbsp. grated lime peel, 2 tsp. smoked chili powder, 2 tsp. hot curry powder
