I love wings! I have had many a mediocre wing, some decent wings, some really good wings and a few outstanding wings. I am proud to say that my favorite wing is the one I learned to make myself. After years of trying different techniques (baked, fried, boiled first (blech), various sauces, etc) I have come up with what I think is wing perfection. I have discovered that the best wing is deep fried, but first must be coated and left to "rest" before frying. Once fried, these wings are crisp, juicy and delicious as is. My favorite wing however is sauced with a hot and sweet concoction which is super easy to put together and is, I must say, a blend of two commercial sauces with a bit of butter melted in. I hope you enjoy these as much as I do!
