  • Marinate chicken in refrigerator 1 to 4 hours.

  • Scatter flour over the chicken wings; toss to coat. Discard any remaining marinade.

  • Preheat oven to 425 degrees F (220 degrees C).

  • Heat shortening in a large skillet over medium-high heat; fry chicken in hot shortening until golden, 5 to 7 minutes per side.

  • Arrange fried chicken pieces onto a baking sheet.

  • Bake chicken in preheated oven until no longer pink at the bone and the juices run clear, about 20 minutes; remove chicken to a platter lined with paper towels to drain.

  • Melt butter in a large skillet over medium heat. Cook garlic in melted butter until translucent, about 2 minutes.

  • Stir hot sauce into the butter and garlic mixture; reduce heat to low and simmer sauce 5 minutes. Transfer sauce to a large bowl.

  • Move drained chicken in batches to the bowl with the sauce and turn to coat. Drizzle any remaining sauce over wings to serve.

because of Lucky's review and it being close to super bowl sunday. I was looking for a good wing recipe (Very tired of the restaurant wings) these had the most wonderful flavor!! I baked them as directed the only change I made was to brush some of them with Sweet baby Ray's kickin bourbon wing sauce and glaze. which was pretty darned good. but if I hadn't used this marinade on them first it would have been pretty darned blawzay! I will use this from now on. Best tasting wing I have had in YEARS even hubby loved them. Thank you so much for this GREAT recipe!! Read More

Fabulous! I can't keep enough of them on the table... it's like a pack of hungry animals pouncing. That apple cider vinegar marinade is kick-. I use half the recommended butter and just a few more ounces of hot sauce seems to work great. Thank you for this recipe! Read More

Just made this exactly as written. These are the BEST I've ever had - restaurant or homemade. I used Louisiana Gem Habanero Pepper Sauce for the hot pepper sauce and Trader Joe's organic unfiltered Apple Cider Vinegar. I also bought a fresh brand new can of Crisco shortening. Make sure you have the large bowls baking sheet (I used a jelly roll pan) skillet paper towel-lined platter and serving dish out and ready because things happen fast towards the end. I had them marinate in the fridge overnight. I have two more pounds of wings in my Costco bag of frozen wings and I will make another batch using this same recipe. Perfect amount of heat and so delicious! Didn't feel the heat on my lips until I was done;-) Thanks Jeri!!! Read More

I made your recipe exactly as you recorded it. I wouldn’t change an iota of it. You cannot perfect perfection and your recipe indeed is perfection. After the second bite my wife said, “these are the best wings you have ever made. Read More

I’ve done a variety of buffalo chicken recipes and this my favorite so far. Next time I’ll marinate them for the full four hours, and they also came out great using an air fryer. Read More
