Cajun Wings

I love chicken wings. Any flavor, any time, but in particular, I love wings with some kick. Not over-the-top, kick-me-in-the-gut hot, but just spicy enough to wake you up. These Cajun chicken wings with dipping sauce bring the heat thanks to Louisiana hot sauce.

I prefer to cook my wings in my Char-Broil The Big Easy TRU-Infrared Oil-less Turkey Fryer  then finish them off on the grill to get a nice crunchy skin. But, they’re just as great cooked in the oven or on a grill. These wings with dipping sauce are a delight no matter what you use to make them.
