  1. Season chicken wings lightly with seasoned salt.
  2. Mix flour, salt, black pepper, cayenne pepper, and paprika together in a wide, shallow bowl. Press wings into flour mixture to coat and arrange onto a large plate so they do not touch. Refrigerate coated wings for 15 to 30 minutes.
  3. Dredge wings again in flour mixture and return to the plate. Refrigerate wings again 15 to 30 minutes.
  4. Heat oil in a deep-fryer or large saucepan to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C).
  5. Fry chicken wings in hot oil until crisp and no longer pink at the bone and the juices run clear, 9 to 12 minutes. An instant-read thermometer inserted into the thickest part of the meat, near the bone should read 165 degrees F (74 degrees C).
  6. Transfer fried wings to a large stainless steel bowl. Drizzle sauce over the wings and toss to coat.

Made this for Labor Day and everyone loved. I scaled this up for about 40 wings and I didn't sauce them so they stayed extra crispy. Served with hot sauce and blue cheese dressing in the side. T...

I cooked them in Peanut Oil for 21 minutes (I like my chicken wings nice and crispy). Also - I added a touch of cayenne pepper to the rub (used Lawry's Seasoning Salt). Tried these with Chic...

This was soo easy, and made the best wings I have had, and I eat wings at least 3 or 4 times a month. I followed the recipe to a T, except for some of the seasonings in the flower. They came out...

Both my husband and I loved these. He said, please only make them like this from now on. LOL
