Ingredients

For the sauce:
  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • 1 large shallot, chopped
  • 2 garlic cloves, chopped
  • 2 ounces bourbon
  • 1/2 cup brown sugar
  • 1/2 cup honey
  • 1 tablespoon ancho pepper, finely chopped
  • 8 ounces chili sauce
  • 8 ounces barbecue sauce
  • 3 ounces wing sauce
For the wings:
  • Oil, for frying
  • 50 chicken wings
  • Blue cheese dressing, for serving
  • Bourbon, for serving

Directions

For the sauce:

In a large saucepan, melt the butter. Add the shallot and garlic cloves and saute, about 2 to 3 minutes. Stir in the bourbon, brown sugar and the honey to heat through, 1 minute. Next add the ancho pepper, chili sauce, barbecue sauce, and wing sauce and cook, stirring occasionally for 2 minutes. Keep warm until ready to serve.

For the chicken wings:

Heat oil in a deep-fryer. As you make the sauce, drop chicken wings, in batches (the amount you drop in at 1 time will depend on the size of your fryer) into the deep-fryer. Fry until golden brown on both sides. Remove the wings from the oil and drain.

Add the wings to a large mixing bowl and toss in the sauce, coating each wing.

Serve blue cheese dressing and 1/2 shots of bourbon, on the side, for adults to sip.
