Recipe Rant: Hot Wings

It seems to be my internal quest to duplicate the foods we like to order at restaurants. Hot wings have long been one of these favorites. Many versions have been prepared in my kitchen, but this is by far the easiest.

1.5 lbs fresh wingettes and drumettes
seasoning salt (like Johnny's)
1/4 cup Louisiana style hot sauce (like Frank's Red Hot)
2 tbls melted margarine or butter

Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Prepare a rimmed baking sheet by covering it with aluminum foil. Spray a pan sized baking rack (I use a cooking cooling sheet) on both sides with cooking spray. Place chicken pieces skin side up on rack. Sprinkle liberally with seasoning salt. Cook until internal temp is 180 degrees and skin is crispy; about 45 minutes. Combine margarine or butter with hot sauce. Toss wings in sauce and serve while hot.

Tips: If you like it hotter, stir some Tapatio hot sauce into the mix. For a milder taste, use a higher margarine to hot sauce ratio.

Serves: 2
