Using Fire Cider in place of hot sauce adds a sweet kick to traditional wings. Recipe by our friend Tom Pagliarulo, Esq.
- Canola or peanut oil for frying
- 24 organic chicken wing parts (12 wings separated into 2 pieces)
- One 8-ounce bottle Fire Cider
- 4 ounces hot sauce, we love Frank’s Red Hot
- 1 stick pasture butter
- Several dashes Worcestershire sauce
Hot wings with Fire Cider are sweet, spicy and tangy-good!
Heat 3 inches of canola/peanut oil in a heavy pot to 375 degrees F.
Add half the chicken wing parts to the oil and fry them until they're golden brown and fully cooked, 5 to 7 minutes. Remove and drain on paper towels. Repeat with the other half of the wing parts.
In a saucepan, heat the Fire Cider, hot sauce and butter over medium-low heat. Add the Worcestershire and hot sauce. Let it bubble up, and then turn off the heat.
Place ½ of the wings in a big bowl and toss with just enough sauce to coat; if you use too much sauce you’ll lose the crunch! Repeat with the remaining fried wings.
Serve with leftover sauce, blue cheese dip and celery sticks. Left over sauce will keep in the fridge for your next batch of wings!
