If the freedom of speech is taken away then dumb and silent we may be led, like sheep to the slaughter. –George Washington
1 c. flour (I like to use Wondra flour but regular flour is great too)
1/2 tsp. cayenne pepper
20 (or so) chicken wings
oil for deep frying
1/3 c. Franks Hot Sauce (It has to be Franks Hot Sauce… no other sauce will taste as good)
1 1/2 c. brown sugar
1 Tbsp. water
For the wings:
In a bowl mix together the flour, cayenne and salt. Place chicken wings in a large bowl and toss with flour mixture until they are evenly coated (or you can do it the Shake n’ bake way and put it all in a large bag, do 5 or so wings at a time so they get evenly coated). Cover bowl and refrigerate for about an hour.
(Sauce): Heat up hot sauce, brown sugar and water in a saucepot until all the sugar dissolves. Remove from heat and allow to cool to room temp before adding to wings OR prepare ahead of time and refrigerate. The wings turn out best if you don’t pour warm sauce over them. You want it nice and thick.
Heat oil in a deep fryer to 375 degrees. Fry coated wings in hot oil for 10 to 15 minutes, or until parts of wings begin to turn brown. Remove from heat, place wings in serving bowl, add sauce mixture and stir together.
