Expert Tips

Serve these spicy wings with blue cheese dressing and celery sticks.

Fry wings up to 8 hours ahead of time, store in refrigerator just until ready to serve. To serve, heat oven to 450°F. On an ungreased 15x10 x1-inch baking sheet place chicken. Bake 6 to 8 minutes, or until thoroughly heated. Toss with pepper sauce mixture.
