"Different layers of flavors create a buffalo wing sauce with a nice bite! Not too hot and not too mild. Serve with ranch or blue cheese dressing."

  1. Toss chicken wings in a large bowl with apple cider vinegar, garlic salt, paprika, red pepper flakes, onion salt, and black pepper to coat; cover bowl with plastic wrap.
  2. Marinate chicken in refrigerator 1 to 4 hours.
  3. Scatter flour over the chicken wings; toss to coat. Discard any remaining marinade.
  4. Preheat oven to 425 degrees F (220 degrees C).
  5. Heat shortening in a large skillet over medium-high heat; fry chicken in hot shortening until golden, 5 to 7 minutes per side.
  6. Arrange fried chicken pieces onto a baking sheet.
  7. Bake chicken in preheated oven until no longer pink at the bone and the juices run clear, about 20 minutes; remove chicken to a platter lined with paper towels to drain.
  8. Melt butter in a large skillet over medium heat. Cook garlic in melted butter until translucent, about 2 minutes.
  9. Stir hot sauce into the butter and garlic mixture; reduce heat to low and simmer sauce 5 minutes. Transfer sauce to a large bowl.
  10. Move drained chicken in batches to the bowl with the sauce and turn to coat. Drizzle any remaining sauce over wings to serve.

I will definitely make this again. We love chicken wings in our house and this was the best recipe so far.

Awesome crispy texture! Some homemade wing recipes come out soggy, not these. The wing sauce is not overly spicy, but does creep up on you. Recipe says it serves 8, not sure if 2 lbs will feed...
