An easy recipe for hot wings involves tossing wings in a mixture of butter and a cayenne hot pepper sauce after baking or grilling the wings. The cook adds salt, pepper, Worcestershire sauce and brown sugar or vinegar to alter the flavor and suit their personal tastes.
About.com recommends using 5 pounds of chicken wings along with 1 cup of Frank's Hot Sauce, a stick of butter, 2 tablespoons of white vinegar, 1 tablespoon of brown sugar, and salt or cayenne pepper to taste. The About.com recipe requires baking the wings at 450 degrees F for 20 minutes and then turning the wings and baking them for another 20 minutes before adding the mixture to the meat. Food Network star Ree Drummond offers a similar recipe that adds Worcester sauce and dashes of tabasco sauce for flavor. Drummond's recipe requires frying the wings in canola oil heated to 375 degrees F and adding the sauce once the wings finish cooking.
Guy Fieri provides Food Network website visitors with a recipe that forgoes traditional hot sauces, such as tabasco or Frank's Hot Sauce, and instead uses cayenne pepper for heat and white pepper, cumin and mustard powder for flavor. Fieri heats his wings on the grill before mixing them together with a combination of 1 tablespoon each of granulated garlic, cayenne pepper, mustard powder and fresh black pepper, 1/2 tablespoon of ground white pepper and 2 teaspoons of ground cumin for the coating.
