I LOVE the Winger’s sauce and I crave it all the time. I like to put it on grilled chicken, chicken kabobs, or just dip popcorn in it. Recently we made burgers on the grill and added this over the top… it was AMAZING (no wonder they call this sauce “Freakin’ Amazing Sauce). Add a little ranch to the sauce to make Wingers Creamy Amazing Sauce and put it on salads! You just can’t go wrong with this stuff!
- 1 c. flour (I like to use Wondra flour but regular flour is great too)
- 1/2 tsp. cayenne pepper
- pinch salt
- 20 (or so) chicken wings
- oil for deep frying
- 1/3 c. Franks Hot Sauce (It has to be Franks Hot Sauce... no other sauce will taste as good)
- 1 1/2 c. brown sugar
- 1 Tbsp. water
- FOR THE WINGS:
- In a bowl mix together the flour, cayenne and salt. Place chicken wings in a large bowl and toss with flour mixture until they are evenly coated (or you can do it the Shake n' bake way and put it all in a large bag, do 5 or so wings at a time so they get evenly coated). Cover bowl and refrigerate for about an hour.
- FOR THE SAUCE: Heat up hot sauce, brown sugar and water in a saucepot until all the sugar dissolves. Remove from heat and allow to cool to room temp before adding to wings OR prepare ahead of time and refrigerate. The wings turn out best if you don't pour warm sauce over them. You want it nice and thick.
- Heat oil in a deep fryer to 375 degrees. Fry coated wings in hot oil for 10 to 15 minutes, or until parts of wings begin to turn brown. Remove from heat, place wings in serving bowl, add sauce mixture and stir together.
