Deep Fried Chicken Wings

"This is my go to recipe for 10 to 15 wings, but it works with 6 thighs or 6 legs just as well. I fry the wings for 10 minutes, thighs and legs for 17 minutes. The spice amounts suit us perfectly, but feel to add more garlic, change up the spices or soak the wings longer in the sauce for a little more kick. Keep in mind that the size of your chicken pieces will dictate how long they should cook."
