Melinda's Bold Buffalo Wings

This recipe comes to us from the creators of the world-famous Melinda's Hot Sauces. Melinda's sauces are well-known for using all-natural ingredients and expertly balancing heat with great flavor. Their wing sauces are unique in that they blend fiery habanero peppers with the traditional tangy cayenne pepper found in most Buffalo style wing sauces, AND they're Kosher as well as all-natural. The result is an irresistible Buffalo wing sauce with the perfect combination of sizzle and tang that will have you coming back for more. While the following recipe calls for 5 lbs of chicken wings, you can easily make less or more as desired since the recipe doesn't require precise ingredient amounts. You can either bake or fry the wings.

5 lbs chicken wings
Garlic powder
Black pepper
Seasoned salt
1 bottle of Melinda's Wing Sauce (your choice of flavor)

If using oven, preheat to 400F degrees. Season the chicken wings with garlic powder, black pepper and seasoned salt [Note: I like to do this by tossing everything together in a large resealable plastic bag and shaking, or tossing in a large bowl]. Fry the seasoned wings in hot oil until crispy brown, OR bake for 20 minutes at 400F, turning after 10 minutes. In a saucepan, simmer Melinda's Wing Sauce on low heat. Briefly toss the wings in the warmed sauce, then serve the wings on a platter with celery sticks and chunky blue cheese dressing for dipping [Note: I like to use Anchor Bar Bleu Cheese Sauce].

PS: Although Melinda's Hot Wing Sauce is currently out of stock at the manufacturer level, you can still get Melinda's Extra Hot Buffalo Wing Sauce -- and it's currently on sale online at the Carolina Sauce Company!
