My hubby made hot wings today for the Superbowl. The whole house smelled of cayenne pepper and hot sauce! He finally wrote down his recipe (which he concocted from different recipes online) and so I am finally able to post it for you.
There are two recipes here. One is for the wings and the other is for the wing sauce.
3 lbs chicken wings
3 tbsp cayenne pepper
3 tsp crushed red pepper flakes
- Fill large pot (boiler or dutch oven) half way with water and then add ingredients.
- Bring water mixture and wings to a boil and boil for 15 minutes.
- Transfer wings to an oven safe container (casserole dish) coated with cooking spray. Bake wings on Broil for 15 minutes, then turn wings and broil for another 15 minutes. (For crispier wings, cook longer on each side, roughly no more than 20 minutes per side however.)
Spicy Garlic Wing Sauce
3 cups hot sauce
1 cup vegetable oil
1 1/2 tsp Worcestershire sauce
3 tsp sugar
3 tsp garlic powder
1 1/2 tsp black pepper
1 1/2 tsp cayenne pepper
3 egg yolks
6 tsp water
6 tsp cornstarch
While wings are broiling:
- In a small saucepan, combine first 7 ingredients. Heat over medium heat until sauce begins to boil. Reduce heat and simmer for 5 minutes.Remove from heat and allow to cool for 10 minutes.
- Whisk egg yolks and water together in a bowl. Add cornstarch and continue to whisk until cornstarch is completely dissolved.
-Slowly add warm hot sauce mixture to egg mixture. Continually whisk to create an emulsion.
Now, in a large bowl, combine your cooked wings with sauce and voilà! Serve them warm with blue cheese or ranch dressing!
