    Serves: 6 

    • 1 to 1.5kg (3 lb) chicken wings, separated at joints, tips discarded

    Prep:10min  ›  Cook:20min  ›  Ready in:30min 

    1. Preheat barbecue for high heat.
    2. Lightly oil the cooking grate. Cook the wings 8 to 12 minutes on each side, until juices run clear. The larger pieces will take slightly longer to cook.
    3. Melt the butter in a saucepan, and mix in the Tabasco, pepper and salt.
    4. Place wings in a large container with a secure lid. Pour sauce over the wings, and seal. Shake wings with the sauce until thoroughly coated.


    If you don't want to fire up the barbecue, just cook the wings under your oven's grill.

    My daughter Ashley is the hot wing, not to mention hot anything, expert. Believe it or not, this is a taste she developed when she was a baby. She gave these a five star rating, however, the only change we made was to deep fry the wings in lieu of barbecuing, as we like them really crispy. Thanks Beth!  -  15 Sep 2008


    The flavour of the sauce was great but it is a little thin (could be the hot sauce I used). We barbecued the wings but we like them crispier too, so will fry them next time we make this.  -  15 Sep 2008


    I baked the wings instead of bbq'ing them, used an extra hot sauce and they were wonderful! My husband thought the sauce could be a little thicker.  -  15 Sep 2008
