Pizza Hut Spicy BBQ Wings Ingredients

  • 3 pounds chicken wings, tips removed and cut at the joints[3]
  • Peanut oil for frying
  • 2 cups ketchup[4]
  • 1/2 cup light brown sugar
  • 1 jalapeno pepper, minced finely[5]

Pizza Hut Spicy BBQ Wings Recipe

  1. In a medium saucepan, combine the ketchup, brown sugar, minced jalapeno, liquid smoke, cayenne pepper, garlic powder, onion powder and mustard powder.
  2. Bring the mixture to a boil. Then turn down the heat and simmer for uncovered for about an hour, stirring often.
  3. Rinse off the chicken wings, and pat them dry. Sprinkle with salt and pepper.
  4. Heat the peanut oil in a deep frying vessel, or use a large pot if you have no deep fryer. Heat the oil to 375 degrees.
  5. Carefully add the chicken wings in batches. Cook for about six minutes per batch. There should be no trace of pink in the middle of the wings.
  6. Set fried wings on a towel to soak up the excess oil.
  7. When the wings are done, toss them in the barbecue sauce until they are evenly coated.
  8. Serve with your favorite dipping sauce.

Some jalapenos are hotter than others, so it may be a good idea to conduct a taste test for heat level before adding the whole pepper to your barbecue sauce. If the pepper is too hot, you can remove the seeds and the membranes. This is where most of the capsaicin is, which is the chemical that gives peppers their heat.
