This area is known for its chicken wings, and these are the best I've ever tasted. They make great appetizers.


  • 16 to 18 chicken wings (about 4 pounds)
  • Oil for deep-fat frying
  • 1/2 cup butter, melted
  • 1/2 cup hot pepper sauce
  • 2 tablespoons cider vinegar
  • Carrots and celery sticks
  • Blue cheese dressing


  1. Cut wings into three pieces; discard the wing tips. Fry chicken in hot oil until crisp and juices run clear (5-7 minutes for small part, 6-8 minutes for drumettes).
  2. Combine butter, hot pepper sauce and vinegar in a bowl; add chicken and toss to coat. Drain. Serve with carrots, celery and dressing.
