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

  1. For the sauce:
  2. 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.
  3. For the chicken wings:
  4. 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.
  5. Add the wings to a large mixing bowl and toss in the sauce, coating each wing.
  6. Serve blue cheese dressing and 1/2 shots of bourbon, on the side, for adults to sip.
