Thoroughly combine the seasoning mix ingredients in a small bowl.( SEE BELOW) *
Melt 5 tablespoons of the REAL butter with 2 teaspoons of the Tabasco sauce in a small saucepan over low heat. Pour into a small shallow bowl or pie plate, and let cool slightly. Put the chicken wings into a large bowl and coat well with 2 tablespoons of the seasoning mix. Add the butter/Tabasco mixture and work in well with your hands until chicken is completely coated and seasonings are well distributed. (Make sure the chicken wings are at room temperature; otherwise, the seasoning mixture will congeal and you’ll have a mess of gunk that won’t stick well to the chicken.) Set aside to marinate (for up to 30 minutes, covered) and heat the oil. Heat the oil in a large heavy skillet over high heat until it is very hot. Add the chicken wings, fitting in as many as there is room for in a single layer. Fry until crisp and golden brown, about 8 to 12 minutes, turning several times. Drain on paper towels. Repeat with the remaining wings. Meanwhile, make a sauce to finish the wings by melting the remaining butter and adding the remaining Tabasco and seasoning mix. Dip the cooked wings into the finishing sauce and place on a serving platter. Serve with the Blue Cheese Dressing and celery sticks, if desired. Yield: 8 servings
