Of Wingers and Franks

So, I don't know why I have been on a copycat recipe thing these last few days, but I found a recipe for Winger's wings, that all the comments said tasted spot on. I tried it last night in one of my rare fried food indulgences, and boy, was it tasty with a capital T! The recipe is so simple, I can write it down from memory.

3 T. Frank's hot sauce (apparently it absolutely has to be Frank's)
2 T. water
3/4 c. brown sugar

Cook these ingredients in a small pan until boiling, then remove from heat. Meanwhile, fry your frozen, breaded chicken nuggets in a frying pan in a little bit of oil until crispy, drain on paper towels when done, and pour the sauce over them. (I put my chicken in a large tupperware with a lid, poured the sauce on top, then shook it 'til the sauce coated the chicken.) Arden made us some yummy homemade ranch sauce to dip the wings in (which Maile promptly knocked over, then stepped in on accident, and yes, we still ate it. Be warned if you decide to eat at my house! To be fair, in an attempt to preserve sanitation, we did try to rescue the bit that hadn't gotten stepped in or touched the countertop.) Anyway, it was fantastic.

These were fabulous at Becca's wedding lunch!!! What kind of breaded chicken did you use? Totally better than wingers, I would love to try making them some time.

I ate at your house a ton and I am sure glad that I never noticed anyone stepping in the food :) I sure loved everything you cooked, I would probably still eat it even if I knew it was stepped in. Love you guys!!
