Preparation / Directions:
Cut the chicken wings in two at the joints. In a large frying pan or skillet; heat to 360F enough oil (or shortening) to cover the chicken wings. Add the wings and fry until crisp, about 12-15 minutes.
To bake, preheat the oven to 450F.
Spread the chicken wings out on a baking sheet in one layer and bake 45 minutes. To make the sauce, combine the Hot Sauce or Tabasco and melted butter and blend thoroughly. As soon as the chicken wings are cooked, douse with the sauce, and serve immediately.

But I cook them along with the wings and save them for myself. I call them the "cook's treat." You may fry or bake the wings, depending on dietary consideration
