I really just used the sauce since I already love the way I fry my wings. The sauce was great! It tasted just like Bennigan's sauce. My husband will never buy wings anymore.

I had to add a little more cayenne pepper to suit my taste, but it was exactly the recipe I was looking for; a fried spicy wing.

Have made many batches of wings, but this was by far the croad favorite. Nice and cripsy.This is a nice recipe to email friends so they can make wings like a pro!

These were awesome! I baked mine without the flour...just added the spices to the chicken and baked. Then spiced up the hot sauce on the stove and poured it over the wings and baked them a little more the get them crispy. EXCELLENT!

These were to die for! Yummy! Next time I will try it with boneless, skinless chicken breast.

Very tasty. However, for 24 wings (three segment wings) I had to double the batter recipe. Also, FYI, 4 cups of oil will only deep fry in a deep cooker that will allow only 4 wings at a time to cook and thus drives up the cooking time. Just plan accordingly or get more oil with a bigger pot. I found one stick unsalted butter with table spoon of garlic and 4 tbls of ground parmesan cheese to be a good dipping sauce. Also for traditional buffalo sauce, one stick of butter with a cup of Frank's Red Hot Buffalo sauce a good combination.
