Hot Legs

24 chicken legs, deep fried or baked ( when baking pre-heat oven to 475 degrees place chicken on a baking sheet with a wire rack and bake for 15 -20 minutes, lower heat to 350 and then bake for another 45 minutes.)

For the sauce:

2 cups "Franks" Hot Sauce
1 stick butter
º
1 tsp garlic powder
1 tsp onion powder
1 tsp celery seed
2 Tbsp cider vinegar
In a sauce pan add all ingredients and bring to a boil, then simmer for 5 minutes stirring constantly. Add chicken to a large mixing bowl pour sauce over chicken and coat well. Add chicken to a plate or platter and pour over remaining sauce.

I don't think Frank's Hot Sauce is very hot. It's diluted with butter to make it even milder. I usually add some cayenne pepper when I make buffalo wings.

Right on Andy, not too hot. I made these yesterday for a wake. For myself I'll grind a dried habanaro or add ground chipotle pepper.

Those look fantastic!

I started doing those when the price of wings went out of control!

I know what's on the menu this weekend, just need to pick up a bottle of Marie's chunky blue cheese dressing and a roll of paper towels!

This is a very good point, AB. And legs have a lot more meat. Interesting that they're now cheaper than wings.

These look good as long as they don't swell my lips! I have a story about hot wings I had in Santa Fe...

S&P, I've never made Buffalo wings of any kind so I may as well start with legs. Have you ever cooked the legs on the grill rather than in the oven? Just wondering. Also, no thanks to you I can't get Rod Stewart's voice out of my head...and I'm not the fan in the family.

That's what I heard in my head just reading the thread title the first time! These sound interesting but will not be made here! DH doesn't do hot sauce. I would have to sub a sweet honey BBQ instead.

I do mine with chicken thighs as well, and use my own marinade recipe. I call 'em smouldering chicken, (smouldering thighs just won't work in my G-rated house) 'cause they leave you with a warm glow in your mouth when you're done eating them.

I am so glad this is of chicken!. The words "hot legs" in my former country are of a very different sort of legs!

Those look very good!

It looks good! I hope to try this recipe myself soon.

It seems to me that you could choose your preferred hot sauce to get the hotness that you prefer.

Jabbur - I do wings here, which we call Asian, but we use the Toasted Sesame Kraft Dressing to coat them. Not bad.
