Not A Foodie Blog But...

This is definitely not a foodie blog. I don't have enough pretty dishes for that or the patience to document every step with a picture. LOL. But recently I came across the BEST wings you'll ever put in your mouth!!! I just had to share. Football season is here. Right? This would definitely be appropriate finger food to serve your friends/family! 

This is also my very first food post, so bare with me:)

The Worlds BEST Hot Wings
So finger lickin good!! 

1/2 cup all-purpose flour
1/4 teaspoon paprika
1/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper
1/4 teaspoon salt
10 chicken wings
oil for deep frying
1/4 cup real unsalted butter
1/4 cup hot sauce ( I Use Texas Petes)
1 dash ground black pepper
1 dash garlic powder

In a small bowl mix together the flour, paprika, cayenne pepper and salt. Place chicken wings in a large nonporous glass dish or bowl and sprinkle flour mixture over them until they are evenly coated. Cover dish or bowl and refrigerate for 60 to 90 minutes. Exhibit A.

Combine the butter, hot sauce, pepper and garlic powder in a small saucepan over low heat. Stir together and heat until butter is melted and mixture is well blended. Remove from heat and reserve for serving. Exhibit B. BEST SAUCE EVER!
Take note: use real butter here but make sure it's unsalted. Lesson learned:) 

Heat oil in a deep fryer to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C) or if you throw a pinch of flour in and it comes to a roil. You're good:) The oil should be just enough to cover wings entirely, an inch or so deep.
Fry coated wings in hot oil for 10 to 15 minutes, or until wings float. Exhibit C.

Remove wings from heat, place on paper towel. Looking yummy! 

Toss with reserved wing sauce and

If you love hot wings like I do, you have to give this a try! I served this last night with ranch, for dipping, and sweet potato fries as my side:)
