- Peanut oil, for frying
- Kosher salt
- 1 teaspoon smoked paprika
- 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
- 3 pounds chicken wings, cut at joint
- 1/2 stick (2 ounces) butter
- 2 cloves garlic, chopped
- 1/2 cup peach preserves
- 1/4 cup hot sauce (recommended: Tabasco)
- 1 tablespoon soy sauce
Preheat deep fryer with peanut oil to 350 degrees F.
Mix the 2 teaspoons salt, smoked paprika, and garlic powder together in a small bowl.
Add chicken wings and toss to coat.
Cook's Note: Let wings sit out at room temperature while you make the sauce to allow them time to absorb the seasonings.
Remove the wings from the fryer and drain on a paper towel-lined baking tray.
Add the fried wings to the large bowl of sauce and toss until well combined and wings are well coated. Using a slotted spoon, remove the wings to a platter and serve immediately.
