I love the hot wings from a certain famous chicken place. However, they're really easy to make at home, too! I was craving wings and decided to make some for dinner. These wings are just a bit spicy (although you can make them as spicy as you want) and incredibly crisp. Would you believe me if I told you that at one point I thought Mr. Kim Chee was eating an apple, not a chicken wing? True story.
Be sure you've got a glass of milk or a cold beer nearby! These wings will leave your lips tingling and your stomach feeling satisfied.
