Heat the oil In a large frypan or deep fryer to 180 degrees C. Deep fry chicken wings in oil until done, about 10 minutes. Remove chicken from frypan or deep fryer and drain on paper towels.
Melt the butter in a large frypan. Stir in the vinegar and Tabasco sauce. Season with salt and pepper to taste. Add cooked chicken to sauce and stir over low heat to coat. The longer the wings simmer in the sauce, the hotter they will be. Serve warm.
