Ingredients

For the Seasoning:

1 tablespoon seasoning salt

1 tablespoon red pepper flakes

2 teaspoons cayenne pepper

2 teaspoons poultry seasoning

1 teaspoon lemon pepper

Freshly ground black pepper

3 pounds chicken wings, split at the joint, tips removed

For the Batter:

2 large eggs

2 tablespoons hot sauce

1 tablespoon red pepper flakes

1 teaspoon cayenne pepper

Freshly ground black pepper

2 cups all-purpose flour

Vegetable oil, for frying

For the Dipping Sauce:

1 cup sour cream

2 tablespoons horseradish

1/4 cup chili sauce

1/2 teaspoon cayenne pepper

Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper

Directions

  1. Make the seasoning: Whisk the seasoning salt, red pepper flakes, cayenne, poultry seasoning, lemon pepper and 2 teaspoons black pepper in a small bowl. Set aside 2 tablespoons seasoning in a separate bowl.
  2. Rinse the wings under cold water and place in a shallow baking dish. Sprinkle with the seasoning, then refrigerate, covered, 1 hour.
  3. Make the batter: Whisk the eggs, hot sauce, red pepper flakes, cayenne and 1 teaspoon black pepper in a medium bowl. Put the flour in a shallow dish or pie plate.
  4. In a large deep fryer or Dutch oven, heat 2 inches of vegetable oil until a deep-fry thermometer registers 350 degrees F. Dip the wings in the eggs, then in the flour. Place the wings, three at a time, in the hot oil and fry until golden, 8 to 10 minutes, turning occasionally. Transfer to a paper-towel-lined baking sheet. Make sure the oil returns to 350 degrees F before adding the next batch. Sprinkle the wings with the reserved seasoning to make them extra hot.
  5. Make the sauce: Mix the sour cream, horseradish, chili sauce, cayenne, and salt and black pepper to taste. Serve with the wings.

How is the cook time ten minutes, when you can only cook three wings per batch. Seems like this take A LOT more time than advertised.
