Cooking oil for deep-fat frying
3
tablespoons margarine or butter
1
2 ounce bottle hot pepper sauce (1/4 cup)
1/2
cup dairy sour cream
1/4
cup mayonnaise or salad dressing
2
tablespoons snipped fresh basil
2
tablespoons snipped parsley

Directions

Fry wing pieces, a few at a time, in deep hot oil (375 degrees F) for 8 to 10 minutes or until golden brown and no longer pink. Drain on paper towels. Keep pieces warm in a 300 degree F oven while frying remaining pieces. Transfer wings to serving dish.
  2. In a saucepan melt margarine or butter. Stir in hot pepper sauce. Pour over wings, turning to coat.
  3. For dipping sauce, in a small mixing bowl stir together sour cream, mayonnaise or salad dressing, basil, parsley, and milk. Serve wings with dipping sauce. Garnish with fresh basil, if desired. Makes 8 to 12 appetizer servings.
