I need a good hotwing recipe..

Gram is addicted to the Tyson spicy hot wings so I've got to find the right blend to be able to make them from scratch.

Can anyone help?

1. I have a baked recipe--

Take about 40 wing pieces...you want to use either the uppers or middle, get rid of the wingtip. Coat a pan with a few tablespoons of peanut oil.

Roast on high heat, turning often. 450-475. This should take about 20-25 minutes. You can put a bit of salt on, but easy does it.

While chicken is roasting, melt a stick of butter with at least 1/4 cup of hot sauce, more to taste. I use Franks. At this point, you can also add whatever seasoning you want--pepper, garlic Old Bay, celery seed, paprika.

When the chicken comes out, drain it on paper towels, then put it in a big bowl and toss with the sauce mix.

Serve it with Bleu Cheese dip.

3. That's mostly what we do

We bake or grill, depending on we feel. mostly we grill low and slow. Maybe 45 minutes? Maybe less.

Franks Hot Wing Sauce (not their hot sauce) and butter, faithful to the directions on the Franks bottle. These never fail. There may be better recipes out there, but nothing easier and more unfussy than this.

4. That's very similar to my dad's

recipe (he was a cook in a restaurant for a number of years) except he didn't use any paprika, although he used everything else. And he did use Frank's hot sauce. They were very, very good. (With the frying, though, not very good for you- just don't eat them all the time!) He made his own blue cheese dressing, too, to serve with them.

5. As to the frying (not very good for you) I hold to what I percieve as the French attitude.

Pretty much eat whatever the hell you want in moderation. If you look at French or even Mediteranian cooking, they seem to eat a fair portion of fatty things like Olives, Avacados, cheese, wine, etc. ans still maintain a healthy regiem. In fact, the Japanese eat similar stuff. What they don't eat, unlike the average North American, is a lot of processed crap. I eat whatever I want but I don't eat processed food, not from any big moral conviction, I just think it tastes like crap. Fortunatly for me, I am now retired and can spend lots of time cooking but when you get used to really cooking your own food from soup to nuts, you find pretty quickly that processed food, even something as simple as Campbell tomato soup is just shit and has enough salt in it to preserve fish.

6. Not hotwings, but just as good.

Buffalo Chicken Meatballs

2 pounds ground chicken or turkey
1 cups bread crumbs ( I use seasoned bread crumbs)
2 eggs, whisked
cup milk
cup parsley
1/3 cup Romano cheese
salt to taste
pepper to taste
Hot-sauce dressing:
cup hot sauce (your choice)
1 teaspoon chili powder
1 teaspoon cajun seasoning
cup melted butter
salt to taste
pepper to taste

In a bowl, mix together ground chicken, bread crumbs, egg, milk, parsley, cheese and seasoning. Form into small balls. Put balls on a sheet pan in an oven preheated to 350 degrees for 25 minutes. Once done, toss with hot-sauce dressing and serve. Garnish with celery and your choice of either bleu cheese or ranch dressing. Makes about 6 servings.
