1.Line a rimmed baking sheet with foil.
Set a wire rack on the baking sheet and
coat it with cooking spray.
2.Place the salt, pepper, 1 tablespoon hot
sauce, and vegetable oil in a resealable plastic
bag, and shake to mix. Add the chicken wings,
seal, and toss until well coated.
3.Place the flour, cayenne pepper, and garlic
powder in another resealable plastic bag, and
shake to mix. Pour the chicken wings from the
first bag into the flour bag, seal, and toss until
well coated with the flour mixture. Place the wings onto
the prepared baking sheet rack, and place into the
refrigerator for at least 1 hour.
4.Preheat oven to 400°F.
5.Melt the butter in a medium microwave safe bowl. Whisk in the hot sauce.
Dip the wings into the butter mixture one at a time, and place back on the baking
sheet rack. Bake in the preheated oven until the chicken is no longer pink in the
center, and crispy on the outside, about 1 hour. Turn the wings over halfway
during cooking so they cook evenly.
