Final Four ~ Wolfpack Wings

It's Final Four time! Which also means it's Wolfpack Wing time too! Is the NCAA basket tournament exciting or what?!  We are all about the North Carolina State Wolfpack here at The Freshman Cook house, and we were so sad when they were eliminated. But now, we have transferred our excitement to Duke. Of course we are also all about the game food and what could be better than hot wings!!  These wings have one distinct difference to a lot of chicken wings~they are baked! And they are yummy tasty and crispy!

(printable recipe)
18-24  Raw, Frozen Chicken Wings
Garlic Powder
1 cup Franks Hot Sauce
5-6 drops Tabasco Sauce
2-3 tablespoons softened Butter
Celery Sticks
Ranch Dip or dressing
Pan Spray

Preheat oven to 425 degrees.
 Spray your cookie sheet, then place frozen wings on it.
Sprinkle with salt, pepper and garlic powder.
Place in oven and bake for 30 minutes.
 While they are baking, make your sauce by
pouring hot sauce in a bowl. Use a bowl large enough
to hold all the wings. Add 1 tablespoon of butter
to sauce. Add a few drops of Tabasco. You can add
more of less depending on how hot you want your wings.

Mix everything together. 
Take your wings out and place them in the bowl.
Don't pour the wings from the baking sheet.
Take each wing out with tongs. You don't want the grease
from the baking sheet.

 Place your sauce in the bowl and
 stir or flip to cover the wings.

Use another baking sheet, or clean the one you just used,
and place the saucy wings on the baking sheet just
like you did the first time. Bake for 20-30 minutes,
or until they are as crisp as you want them to be.
Make more sauce like you did earlier.
Remove the wings from the oven and brush the new
sauce on each wing. Use more for hotter wings, less
for milder wings.

Serve with ranch dressing and celery sticks.
Enjoy your wings and enjoy the game!
