- Serves 6.
- 3 lbs. chicken wings
- 1 teaspoon crushed red pepper
- 1/2 teaspoon cayenne pepper
- Salt and pepper to taste
- 1/3 cup Louisiana hot sauce (or your favorite)
- 1 stick butter or margarine
Cut off tips and separate wings at the joint. Arrange in a single layer in a microwave-safe dish. Cover with plastic wrap and raise one corner to vent.
Microwave on medium-high 7 to 10 minutes. Microwaves vary, so check for doneness every 2 or 3 minutes, rotating the dish and cooking longer if needed.
Melt butter or margarine and add remaining ingredients to make sauce. Heat in microwave-safe bowl just until bubbly (about 3 minutes). Remove from oven and set aside. Drain chicken on paper towels and toss with the sauce. Great served with bleu cheese dressing for dipping.
