Hot wings

1 Package party wings/chicken wings
1/2 cup hot sauce (I used Red Devil, Tapatio is similar)
2.5 cups flour
2 tbsp cayenne pepper
1 tbsp ranch dressing mix
1 tbsp favorite chicken seasoning
2 tsp pepper
2 tbsp garlic salt
1/2 cup vegetable oil

One hour before cooking add chicken and hot sauce into zip lock bag. Allow chicken to marinate in hot sauce. Combine flour and all remaining ingredients, reserving oil. Heat oil over medium heat in deep skillet or frying pan. Remove wings from sauce (don't wipe them, keep them saucy as possible) and drop in flour. Fully coat in flour, then using tongs gently tap off excess flour mixture, it is mostly used to trap the hot sauce. Once oil is hot (hint: drop a bit of the flour mix in first, if it bubbles you are good to go) working in batches of ten fry chicken for about 5 minutes on each side until chicken is cooked and juices run clear. Dry on paper towels to get rid of excess oil, serve hot with your favorite side dishes. Hint, fries and tator tots.
