Ingredients

  • 5 pounds chicken wings
  • 1/2 cup butter, cubed
  • 1/2 cup Louisiana-style hot sauce
  • 1/4 cup balsamic vinegar
  • 1/4 cup soy sauce
  • 3 tablespoons brown sugar
  • 3 tablespoons honey
  • 2 tablespoons plus 1 teaspoon celery seed, divided
  • 2 tablespoons lemon juice
  • 2/3 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon each salt, paprika and cayenne pepper
  • 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
  • Oil for deep-fat frying

Directions

Cut wings into three sections; discard wing tip sections. In a large saucepan, bring the butter, hot sauce, vinegar, soy sauce, brown sugar, honey, 2 tablespoons celery seed and lemon juice to a boil. Reduce heat; simmer, uncovered, until reduced by half.
Meanwhile, in a large resealable plastic bag, combine the flour, salt, paprika, cayenne, garlic powder and remaining celery seed. Add wings, a few at a time, and shake to coat.
In an electric skillet or deep-fat fryer, heat oil to 375°. Fry wings, a few at a time, for 6-8 minutes or until no longer pink, turning once. Drain on paper towels. Place in a large bowl; add sauce and toss to coat. Yield: about 4 dozen.
Editor's Note: Uncooked chicken wing sections (wingettes) may be substituted for whole chicken wings.
This recipe was prepared with the first and second sections of the chicken wings.

"This wings were ok, not too bad. Even though they were called "spicy", they were not spicy enough for our taste."
