Serves: 48 servings


•5 pounds chicken wings
•1/2 cup butter, cubed
•1/2 cup Louisiana-style hot sauce
•1/4 cup balsamic vinegar
•1/4 cup soy sauce
•3 tablespoons brown sugar
•3 tablespoons honey
•2 tablespoons plus 1 teaspoon celery seed, divided
•2 tablespoons lemon juice
•2/3 cup all-purpose flour
•1 teaspoon each salt, paprika and cayenne pepper
•1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
•Oil for deep-fat frying


•Cut wings into three sections; discard wing tip sections. In a large saucepan, bring the butter, hot sauce, vinegar, soy sauce, brown sugar, honey, 2 tablespoons celery seed and lemon juice to a boil. Reduce heat; simmer, uncovered, until reduced by half.
• Meanwhile, in a large resealable plastic bag, combine the flour, salt, paprika, cayenne, garlic powder and remaining celery seed. Add wings, a few at a time, and shake to coat.
• In an electric skillet or deep-fat fryer, heat oil to 375°. Fry wings, a few at a time, for 3-4 minutes on each side or until no longer pink. Drain on paper towels. Place in a large bowl; add sauce and toss to coat. Yield: about 4 dozen.

Editor's Note: Uncooked chicken wing sections (wingettes) may be substituted for whole chicken wings.
