Spicy Fried Wings

Spicy Fried Wings
I think I’ll fire up my new deep fryer again and make KFC copy-cat, spicy wings. Why wouldn’t I?
 
Spicy Fried Wings
 
Spicy Chicken Seasoning:
1 tablespoon seasoning salt
1 tablespoon crushed red pepper flakes
2 teaspoons black pepper
2 teaspoons cayenne pepper
2 teaspoons poultry seasoning
1 teaspoon lemon-pepper
12 whole chicken wings, cut in 1/2 at the joint and tips removed
 
Spicy Chicken Batter:
2 eggs
2 tablespoons hot sauce
1 tablespoon crushed red pepper flakes
1 teaspoon black pepper
1 teaspoon cayenne pepper
2 cups all-purpose flour
Vegetable oil, to fry
Spicy Dipping Sauce, recipe follows
 
Spicy Dipping Sauce:
1 cup sour cream
2 tablespoons horseradish
1/4 tablespoon chili sauce
1/2 teaspoon cayenne pepper
Salt and freshly ground black pepper
 
Spicy Chicken Batter:
In a small bowl whisk together seasoning salt, red pepper flakes, black pepper, cayenne pepper, poultry seasoning, and lemon pepper. Reserve 2 tablespoons in a separate bowl.
 
Rinse chicken wings in cold water and place into a shallow baking dish. Sprinkle the wings evenly with the seasoning, and let them marinate, covered and chilled, for 1 hour.
 
Whisk eggs, hot sauce, red pepper flakes, black pepper, and cayenne pepper into a medium size mixing bowl. Reserve. Put the flour into a shallow dish or pie plate.
 
In a large deep-fryer or large Dutch oven heat oil to 350 degrees F on a deep-fat thermometer.
 
Dredge chicken wings into the egg mixture then into the flour. Place wings 3 at a time into the hot oil and cook for 8 to 10 minutes, turning occasionally, until cooked through and golden brown. Remove to a paper towel lined sheet tray. Make sure oil returns to temperature before adding the next batch. Sprinkle the wings with the reserved seasoning for extra hot wings.
 
Serve with Spicy Dipping Sauce.
Spicy Dipping Sauce:
Mix all the ingredients together in a small bowl.
