I do these in a deep frier although they could also be done in a pan. My guys loves these!
I looked at a bunch of different recipes and mixed the things I thought sounded best and they came out great!

How to Make Sweet and Spicy Fried Chicken Wings


  1. Heat your oil up to 340 degrees. (If doing this in a pan with oil, you want it so when you drop a drop of water into the oil it pops but not uncontrollably)
  2. For the breading you will need two bowls. Add the Flour, Cornstarch , and Spice Rub together in one bowl. Then combine the Eggs, Texas pete,Worcesterhire sauce, and honey and a little water in the other. (this serves as your flavored egg wash)
  3. Begin by taking the chicken one piece at a time and thouroughly coating it in the egg mixture. Then put it into the flour mixture making sure it has a nice thick coating.
  4. After all the pieces of chicken are coated, place them about 6 or seven at a time (however many will fit in your frier at a time) into the oil for about 10-12 minutes.
  5. While The chicken is frying, begin the sauce. Over Medium heat in a saucepan melt down half the stick of butter. Adding the onion powder, garlic powder, and cinnamon at this time. Then add the honey. Let this come to a boil for just a few seconds.Once boiling turn heat to low and add texas pete and worcestershire sauce. Mix well then add second half of butter and let melt over low heat. (make sure you test to see if its spicy enough for you)
  6. Once wings are done, place paper towels on a plate and let the excess oil from the wings drain on paper towels.
  7. Once they have drained and crisped up a little toss them in the sauce. Great served as is or with some celery. ENJOY!
