Method

1. Combine the flour with the salt, pepper, and Cajun seasoning. Cut the tips off the chicken wings and season with the spiced flour mixture.

2. Heat the oil in a frying pan and add the butter. Fry the chicken wings over a moderate heat until golden. You can also deep-fry the wings if you'd prefer.

3. Heat the jar of hot sauce with the butter and simmer for 5 minutes.
