Ingredients

 

4 pounds chicken wings, split at the joints, tips removed
4 tablespoons canola oil

1 1/2 sticks unsalted butter
3/4 cup Frank's RedHot sauce

Directions

 

  1. Place your oven rack on the top third of the oven and preheat to 400o

  6. Melt the butter in a small pot over medium heat. Add the hot sauce, garlic, honey, and Worcestershire sauce and stir until the mixture bubbles gently. Remove from the heat, and season with salt and pepper to taste. Set aside.

  7. Remove the wings from the baking sheet and transfer to a large bowl. Pour the warm sauce over the wings and gently toss to coat. Transfer the wings to a serving platter and enjoy.
