Ingredients

  • 2 cups Frank's Red Hot Original Sauce
  • 1 1/2 cups brown sugar dark or light
  • 20 pieces of chicken wings about 4 lbs
  • Tony Chachere "More Spice" Seasoning optional, or salt, pepper, paprika
  • 1 bunch of celery washed, sliced thin

for dipping sauce:

  • 1 cup sour cream light or regular
  • 1 plain Greek yogurt 5.3 oz I use Chobani
  • 1/2 cup Gorgonzola or Bleu cheese crumbled
  • 1/2 teaspoon coarse sea salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon onion powder

Instructions

About 30 minutes before serving:

  1. Whisk together the hot sauce and brown sugar in a bowl, set aside.
  2. In a separate bowl, mix together the sour cream, Greek yogurt, gorgonzola, salt and onion powder. Refrigerate until ready to serve.
  3. Pre heat oven to 375 degrees with oven rack on top third of oven. ( I use the third rack from the top).
  4. Place chicken wings on lightly greased rimmed baking sheet. Season generously with More Spice Seasoning or salt, pepper and paprika.
  5. Bake for 15-20 minutes or until chicken is done. Remove from oven.
  6. Turn oven to 450 degrees. If you have a convection setting, turn the convection setting on.
  7. Place the cooked chicken in a large bowl using tongs or a large spoon. Do not pour the chicken into the bowl as the juice from the chicken needs to be discarded. Pour about 1 cup of the hot sauce mixture over the cooked wings in the bowl. Toss the wings so they are coated with the hot sauce. Discard any juice from cooked chicken in the baking pan.
  8. After the chicken has been coated with the hot sauce mixture, place the chicken back on the baking pan, spoon a little more sauce over the chicken pieces and place back in oven for 5-7 minutes or until chicken browns bit. You may also turn the oven to broil and broil the chicken for just a few minutes instead of cooking at 450 degrees. Watch carefully so it doesn't burn!
  9. Remove from oven and arrange on a serving platter with celery slices and dipping sauce, and spoon additional hot sauce over wings if desired.

Recipe Notes

-I purchase a 10 lb bag of chicken from Costco and use about half for this recipe. I like the Kirkland brand chicken wings which are labeled "first and second sections, ice glazed" -The chicken pieces may be baked frozen or thawed, if baked straight from the freezer unthawed, add about 5 minutes to initial baking time. -The More Spice Seasoning is not necessary, you may use any type of seasoning salt or Creole seasoning. -I recommend placing a small spoon in the dipping sauce so all of the sauce from the chicken does not end up in the bowl of gorgonzola dipping sauce.-You should have about 1 1/2 cups of sauce leftover, which you can save for another batch of wings! If you double this recipe, one batch of hot sauce should be enough.
