My husband loves hot wings. I've been meaning to make them for some time, but just haven't gotten around to them. Finally, I made a plan to fix them tonight. I used America Test Kitchen's recipe. Here's a link to the recipe I used: http://www.mealsmatter.org/recipes-meals/recipe/31975
What had always intimidated me about wings before was having to cut the tips off and all that. But, I bought the wings from BJ's (huge bag!) and didn't have to cut them at all.
My husband gave the recipe a thumbs up. Actually, he said they were as good as any he'd had at a restaurant. The nice thing is that at the same time when I was frying the hot wings up, I fried up ones without cayenne pepper and tossed them with a teriyaki sauce. And the kids loved the little chicken legs and wings of their own!
