This elevated version of buffalo wings is simply delicious. I love to cook these in the smoker, but an oven works just as well.

  • 1 bulb fennel, thinly sliced
  • 2 ribs celery, thinly sliced

  • 1 tablespoon lemon juice

  • 2 tablespoon olive oil

  • ¼ cup hot sauce 

  • 3 tablespoons butter


  1. Toss chicken with Hot Chicken seasoning. If you have time marinate for 1-2 hours.

  2. Preheat oven to 350 degrees

  3. Roast chicken for 40-50 minutes until cooked through
