Hooter's Buffalo Chicken Wings

10 chicken wings with skin
1/4 cup Frank'sŪ Red Hot Sauce
1/4 cup Land O'LakesŪ Light Butter
1 tbsp. water
1/2 cup all-purpose flour -- or more
1 tsp. salt
1/4 tsp. paprika
1/4 tsp. cayenne pepper
1/4 tsp. Bayou Blast
1 cup skim milk
nonstick cooking spray

Preheat the oven to broil. Line a cookie sheet with either foil or a nonstick baking sheet (like silpat or dupont ones). If using foil, spray with nonstick spray.

Arrange the chicken wings, on the foil or baking sheet with the skin side up. Broil the wings 12-14 minutes or until skin begins to dry.

Remove the chicken from the oven, set to 450°F. Allow the wings to cool for 10-15 minutes or just until they are cool enough to touch.

While the chicken cools, prepare the sauce by combining the hot sauce and water in a small saucepan over medium-low heat. Heat the mixture, stirring often, until it begins to boil. Immediately remove the sauce from the heat and add the light butter. Whisk to blend. Cover and set aside.

Also while the chicken is cooling, prepare the breading mixture. Mix together the flour, salt, paprika, cayenne and Bayou Blast in a small bowl. Pour the milk into another small bowl.

When the chicken is cool enough to touch, remove the skin. Throw out. Dip the chicken, one at a time, in the breading, then into the milk and then back into the breading, to make sure it is coated thoroughly.

Place the chicken back on the cookie sheet. Spray some nonstick cooking spray over the chicken pieces and place in the oven to bake. Bake at 450°F for 12 minutes then up the temperature to Broil for 3-5 minutes, or until the chicken begins to brown and becomes very crispy.

Remove the chicken from the oven. Let it rest for about a minute, then put the chicken in a ziploc bag or a plastic container. Pour a generous amount of the sauce over the chicken, cover or seal, gently shake the chicken so that it all gets well coated with the sauce. Serve immediately.

Serves 2 as an appetizer.
