Chicken Wings

Here’s an interesting recipe developed with a good bit of prototyping over many years. These are HOT wings and trust me, the flavour and HEAT blows other wings out of the water! Nowadays, we no longer use wings but instead pieces of chicken breast cut into pieces about 1 inch long … lower fat than wings and far less waste.

12 Wings per person or a half large-breast cut into pieces per person … deep fry for 12 mins. from frozen, 4 mins. for fresh pieces

1/2 cup ketchup
1 tbsp vinegar
1/4 cup Frank’s hot sauce (100-150 shots from the bottle)
1 tsp cayenne
1/2 tsp chili peppers (crushed chillies)
2 tbsp butter
1/2 tsp oregano

Combine all ingredients & heat until butter is melted. Deep fry wings (or chicken pieces) and put into sauce. Shake until wings covered with sauce. Put wings with sauce in a glass baking dish into oven at 250 degrees F to keep warm until rest are ready. If you prepare the sauce ahead of time and let it sit several hours, the heat soaks out of the crushed chillies and the sauce increases in heat!
