Ingredients

  • 1 (15-ounce) can tomato sauce
  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • 1/2 cup honey
  • 1/4 cup chipotle-flavored hot sauce
  • 1 tablespoon grated lime rind (about 3 limes)
  • 3 tablespoons fresh lime juice
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground red pepper
  • 4 to 5 pounds chicken wings
  • 1 tablespoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon pepper
  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • Peanut or vegetable oil

Preparation

  1. Heat tomato sauce and butter in a small saucepan over medium heat, stirring until butter melts. Stir in honey and next 4 ingredients, and bring to a boil. Reduce heat, and simmer, stirring often, 5 minutes. Set tomato sauce mixture aside.
  2. Cut off wingtips, and discard. Cut wings in half at joint, if desired.
  3. Sprinkle wings evenly with salt and pepper; dredge lightly in flour, shaking off excess.
  4. Pour oil to a depth of 1 1/2 inches into a large, deep skillet or Dutch oven; heat oil to 375°.
  5. Fry wings, in 3 batches, 8 minutes per batch or until golden and crispy. Remove wings from oil using a slotted spoon; drain on layers of paper towels. (Allow oil to return to 375° before adding next batch of wings.)
  6. Place wings in a large bowl. Drizzle with tomato sauce mixture, tossing well to coat. Let stand 5 minutes before serving.
