Servings 5 people


  • 3-4 pounds chicken wings
  • 1-2 tablespoons lemon pepper seasoning
  • 2 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 4 tablespoons cold salted butter divided
  • 2 cloves garlic, pressed through a garlic press or grated with a micro-plane
  • ½ cup of your favorite hot sauce I prefer Franks Original Hot Sauce
  • 1 tablespoon brown sugar
  • 1 tablespoon apple cider vinegar
  • ¼ teaspoon Worcestershire sauce


  • Cut the chicken wings at the joint into sections. Discard the tips or save them for chicken stock later.
    Wash the wing sections and pat them completely dry.
  • Add the dry wings to a large bowl and season with the salt and lemon pepper seasoning. Allow to sit for about 30 minutes to allow the flavors to permeate the meat.
  • Cook the wings per your favorite method

For the sauce:

  • Melt 2 tbs of the butter along with the garlic in a small saucepan over medium-low heat. Simmer gently for about 1 minute so that the garlic can infuse into the butter.
  • Add the hot sauce, brown sugar, Worcestershire, and vinegar to the garlic butter. Simmer for another 3 minutes and then transfer to a large mixing bowl.
  • Whisk in the remaining 2 tbs of cold butter, 1 tbs at a time, allowing each tbs to melt completely before adding the next. This will help to emulsify the sauce.
  • Add the cooked wings to the large bowl of sauce and toss until wings are well coated. Serve immediately with ranch or blue cheese dressing!
