Mel's Red Hot Baked Wings


My mom has made these wings for years, but instead of wings, she uses bites of chicken, and serves in a bowl with a fork, swimming in juicy wing sauce. The sauce for these is fairly basic, but the technique is what sets them apart. Baked (not fried) these wings are seriously tender and good. The Franks hot sauce, melted butter, and brown sugar coating caramelizes on the wings, making them gooey, sweet, spicy, and chewy. Almost like chicken candyโ€ฆis that weird?

What you will need

16-18 chicken wings

cayenne pepper

1/2 cup Franks Redhot Sauce (original)

1/3rd cups melted butter

2 tablespoons brown sugar
