o chicken hot wings have their own place in the food pyramid? I think they might have left them off the bottom… Maybe they just ran out paper when they were drawing it.
Recipe type: Main
Cuisine: American
Serves: 30 wings
Hot Wings
  • 3 pounds high quality chicken wings
  • ½ cup Magic Dust seasoning (Check out the recipe!)
  • ⅔ cup Frank’s Hot Sauce
  • ½ stick butter (not margarine folks...)
  1. Preheat oven to 400F. Cut full sized wings into wing-ettes. I prefer the large chefs knife. Use the edge the knife closer to the handle and plunge through on the joints. With a little practice you’ll be knocking through a pile in no time.
  2. Season the wings with plenty of magic dust on all surfaces. The sugar and salt components of the dust will make for a wonderfully crunchy skin, so be sure to sprinkle generously.
  3. Find two ½ sheet pans and line with parchment paper. Arrange wings in a single layer. Put in oven and set timer for 10 minutes.
  4. After 10 minutes open oven and stir wings around a bit for an even roast.
  5. Set timer for another 10 minutes, and then repeat stirring process. Continue for a total of 40 minutes of cooking.
  6. When 10 minutes remain, set a small saucepan over low heat. Add butter and Frank’s Hot Sauce. Warm and stir until butter is melted.
  7. Remove wings from the oven once wings appear brown on the edges and the skin has become crisp. It could take as long as 50-60 minutes total to reach proper done-ness. These are extremely forgiving, so no worries if they aren’t perfect at 40 minutes.
  8. Prepare a large bowl (heatproof ceramic or glass preferably) to combine the wings with sauce. Add wings to bowl and pour sauce over the top. Stir gently to cover wings with sauce.
  9. Let’s eat!
