I love JD! I love everything about it. When I was on the National Players Tour 57 we were near Lynchburg Tennessee. Me and a few other guys from the tour decided to take advantage of a little early morning free time and went on tour of the distillery. It was one of the best experiences of my life! During the entire tour you smelled Jack Daniel's in the air. They have a life sized picture statue of him. he was a very tiny man.
Jack Hot Wings
¾ cup all-purpose flour
1 ½ teaspoons salt
¼ teaspoon black pepper
2 pounds chicken drumettes
½ cup (1 stick) butter
½ cup Jack Daniel's® Tennessee Whiskey
¼ cup ketchup
1/3 cup hot pepper sauce, or to taste
Combine flour, salt, and pepper in a shallow bowl. Coat the wings with the flour mixture. Heat 2 to 3 inches of oil in a fryer or heavy pot to 365°F. Fry wings, a few at a time, until golden brown on all sides and cooked through, about 10 to 15 minutes. Drain on paper towels.
Combine all the sauce ingredients in a small saucepan. Bring to a boil. Dip cooked wings in the sauce. Serve with blue cheese dressing and fresh celery and carrot sticks. Makes 6 to 8 servings.
To bake the wings, place them in a roasting pan. Brush wings with melted butter and sprinkle with salt and pepper. Bake in a 450°F oven until lightly browned and cooked through, about 30 minutes. Don't forget you can grill the wings over medium heat for about 30 minutes, turning frequently.
