Kicked Up Wings

Emeril Lagasse
Serves: 8





1 quart vegetable oil
2 dozen chicken drumies, wing w/small joint removed
2 cups Crystal Hot Sauce
1 cup sour cream
cup heavy cream
lemon, juiced
1 teaspoon minced shallots
teaspoon minced garlic
pound Maytag Blue Cheese, crumbled
salt and pepper
dash Worcestershire sauce
1 cups flour
2 eggs, beaten w/1 tablespoon milk
2 carrots, peeled and cut into 3" sticks
2 celery stalks, peeled and cut into 3" sticks
Essence: (Emeril's Creole Seasoning)
2 tablespoons paprika
2 tablespoons salt
2 tablespoons garlic powder
1 tablespoon black pepper
1 tablespoon onion power
1 tablespoon cayenne
1 tablespoon dried oregano
1 tablespoon dried thyme

Cooking Method

Place the oil in a deep pan and heat the oil.

Place the wings in a glass bowl and pour over 1 cup hot sauce.  Stir the wings to mix thoroughly.  Cover the bowl and refrigerate for 1 hour.

In a mixing bowl, combine the sour cream, cream, lemon juice, shallots, and garlic.  Blend until smooth.  Stir in the crumbled cheese and blend until smooth.  Season the dip with salt, pepper, hot sauce, and Worcestershire sauce.

Season the flour with Essence.  Dredge the wings in the flour.  Dip each wing in the egg wash, letting the excess drip off.  Dredge the wings in the seasoned flour for a second time, coating the wing completely.


Fry the wings in batches, until golden brown, about 4 to 5 minutes.  Remove the wings from the oil and drain on paper- lined plate.  Season the wings with salt and pepper.

After all the wings are fried, place the wings in a medium mixing bowl.  Pour the remaining hot sauce over the wings and toss to coat each wing completely.

Place the wings on a platter and serve with the blue cheese dip, carrots, and celery.

Essence (Emeril's Creole Seasoning):  Combine all ingredients thoroughly and store in an airtight jar or container.
