I made this recipe about a good 35 yrs ago. There is a story behind it... I was living in Ithaca, NY and next door to me were a bunch of frat boys from Cornell U that would ask me to cook things for their parties. Once it was the hottest chili they could get and they got it too! This time they wanted Hot chicken wings but not the norm, ie: Buffalo hot wings. So I mixed the hot sauce with the lemon herb recipe that I had and it was an amazingly HUGE hit with the frat boys who asked for this dish numerous times. Those in my family that love hot wings love this recipe too!

Oh my, these are really good hot lemon chicken wings. We dipped them twice and they had a medium heat which we enjoyed. The lemon juice, along with seasonings, is a delicious alternative to traditional Buffalo wings. Great for snacking on while watching football.
