Cold beer and Hot wings is a perfect match made in heaven, or hell, whichever you prefer. Commonly seen in frat parties, backyard barbecues, bistros, bars, and sports night, deliciously hot chicken wings is universally enjoyed and easily appreciated by almost any nation, culture, gender, or age. In an instant, you can throw a party without any fuss simply by cooking a large batch of this hot wings recipe. Served with ice cold beer or red wine, hot chicken wings is great for almost any occasion whether summer, spring, winter, or fall. Unpretentious and delicious, you can’t go wrong with this dish should you decide to cook it for a potluck.
For exceptional tasting chicken wings, you have to fry the chicken in oil and butter until crispy and golden. To do this, you need a deep-fryer, a deep skillet, or a Dutch oven. To make it truly crispy, you coat the chicken wings with flour and beaten eggs but don’t coat it too thickly or the batter will burn before the meat is cooked through. You don’t want the flour and eggs to overwhelm the juicy and crispy chicken skin which is where most of the good greasy addictive flavor is concentrated.
Dust the chicken with the all-purpose flour then lightly dip it in the eggs (beaten with a whisk) and then coat it with a bit of flour once more to get ample crunch and flavor. The chicken should be fried at a temperature of about 360 degrees F. Choose to cook it in an oil that has a high smoke point, one that won’t break down at very high temperatures. Canola and sunflower oil are good choices. Peanut oil is also a good option but will slightly flavor the chicken giving it a hint of nuttiness.
