Confession: I know absolutely nothing about football, and I am just fine with that. But I do love traditional Sunday football "fare," and so for the next few weeks I'll be providing my husbandí' favorite recipes that go along with good game watching
If you don't have a proper deep fryer, of course you can bake the chicken wings before saucing them. You can also fill a large pot with oil and use that for frying.

Rinse chicken wings in cold water, and pat dry thoroughly.
In a deep fryer or large pot, heat oil to 375 degrees. Fry wings in oil for approximately 12-15 minutes, until just crispy.
Meanwhile, heat margarine and hot sauce in a saucepan on medium heat. Whisk until heated through and smooth. Pour sauce into a large mixing bowl, add salt and pepper.
When wings are done, add wings to large bowl and toss to sauce. Add celery sticks for garnish, and serve.
