Pat's Spicy Fried Wings

This is another hot wing recipe from the Food Network Magazine Wing section. I really liked these wings,  but my husband and I both agreed that Bobby Flay's were better! These are pretty good, but they were not as spicy as I was expecting. These are dry wings, meaning you don't toss them in a butter/hot sauce mixture.

Pat's Spicy Fried Wings

Spicy Chicken Seasoning Ingredients:

    * 1 tablespoon seasoning salt
    * 1 tablespoon crushed red pepper flakes
    * 2 teaspoons black pepper
    * 2 teaspoons cayenne pepper
    * 2 teaspoons poultry seasoning
    * 1 teaspoon lemon-pepper
    * 12 whole chicken wings, cut in 1/2 at the joint

Spicy Chicken Batter:

    * 2 eggs
    * 2 tablespoons hot sauce
    * 1 tablespoon crushed red pepper flakes
    * 1 teaspoon black pepper
    * 1 teaspoon cayenne pepper
    * 2 cups all-purpose flour
    * Vegetable oil, to fry
    * Dipping Sauce, recipe follows

In a small bowl whisk together seasoning salt, red pepper flakes, black pepper, cayenne pepper, poultry seasoning, and lemon pepper. Reserve 2 tablespoons in a separate bowl.

Rinse chicken wings in cold water and place into a shallow baking dish. Sprinkle the wings evenly with the seasoning, and let them marinate, covered and chilled, for 1 hour.

Whisk eggs, hot sauce, red pepper flakes, black pepper, and cayenne pepper into a medium size mixing bowl. Reserve. Put the flour into a shallow dish or pie plate.

In a large deep-fryer or large Dutch oven heat oil to 350 degrees F on a deep-fat thermometer.

Dredge chicken wings into the egg mixture then into the flour. Place wings 3 at a time into the hot oil and cook for 8 to 10 minutes, turning occasionally, until cooked through and golden brown. Remove to a paper towel lined sheet tray. Make sure oil returns to temperature before adding the next batch. Sprinkle the wings with the reserved seasoning for extra hot wings.

Serve with dipping sauce.

Spicy Dipping Sauce:

    * 1 cup sour cream
    * 2 tablespoons horseradish
    * 1/4 tablespoon chili sauce
    * 1/2 teaspoon cayenne pepper
    * Salt and freshly ground black pepper

Mix all the ingredients together in a small bowl.
