I adapted these from a tavern in Miami, FL called Scully's that was featured on Diners, Drive-Ins & Dives. These came out very good. Of course, if you like even more heat, add more hot sauce. The heat is in the hot sauce, not with added chiles, altho' that wouldn't be a bad idea. Scully's makes their own hot sauce but one of their ingredients is actual hot sauce (which I assume is Frank's or something close to it - they don't say in the show and their tavern is mentioned in the accompanying book but they don't mention it there either. I guess they want it to be a secret.) I used Franks Extra Hot Hot Sauce, which is not particularly extra hot to me but my hubby loves it.

Scully's Chicken Wings Scampi
Recipe By : adapted from Diners, Drive-Ins and Dives, TV Food Network
Serving Size : 4 Preparation Time :0:00
Categories : Appetizers Poultry
Amount Measure Ingredient -- Preparation Method
-------- ------------ --------------------------------
1 4 lb bag chicken wing sections
4 cloves garlic -- sliced
4 cloves garlic -- minced
1/2 stick unsalted butter
4 oz olive oil
Hot Sauce -- see directions
An hour before, mix together some hot sauce (1 bottle), 1/2 bottle of worcestershire sauce, a dollop or two of horseradish, some garlic chopped and some butter. Let it cook on the stovetop for awhile, until it begins to thicken a bit.
For the wings: Preheat oven to 400 degrees F. Put some heavy duty foil on a large cookie sheet (a rimmed pan). Brush with a bit of olive oil. Pour the bag out onto the sheet pan. Put the chicken in one even layer. Bake for 1/2 hour to 45 minutes, turning once in the middle of the baking.
Remove from oven, douse in hot sauce, then put them on a hot grill pan until you get the grill marks. Then bake for another 10 minutes and then grill again. Then douse with the scampi sauce.
Sprinkle with some parmesan cheese and serve.
For scampi sauce: In a skillet, let the butter melt. Add the oil, minced and sliced garlic. A sprinkle of salt too. Let it simmer until the garlic is barely brown. Turn off and let it sit until the wings are ready.

NOTES : Risa's notes:
I did not grill them, I just doused them with sauce and then baked them and then put the scampi sauce on, no parmesan. They were a big hit. Everyone loved them. A winner!
The original idea came from a segment on Diners, Drive-Ins and Dives - a place in Miami, FL called Scully's Tavern where they make their own hot sauce and a scampi sauce and they fry the wings first, then douse, then grill, then fry again, then grill again and then they put the scampi sauce on them and sprinkle with parmesan cheese.
