Wing Wednesday: Buffalo Wings

With the NFL Playoffs right around the corner it's time to get you prepped for the big game with the Wing Wednesday series.  I'll be posting my favorite wing recipes up until the big game.  For this first installment I'm using a restaurant style buffalo wing recipe.

This recipe scales up pretty well, so if you're making a bunch for a party just be sure your oil temp stays around 375 between batches.

What you'll need
  • 1/2 cup all-purpose flour 
  • 1/4 teaspoon paprika 
  • 1/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper 
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt 
  • 10 chicken wings (flats & drumsticks)
  • Oil for deep frying (vegetable or canola)
  • 1/4 cup butter 
  • 1/4 cup hot sauce 
  • 1 dash ground black pepper 
  • 1 dash garlic powder
Fire up your deep fryer, or heat up a dutch oven with enough oil to cover the wings.  375 degrees is your target temp for the oil.

Mix together the flour, paprika, cayenne pepper and salt in a small bowl.  Evenly coat the wings in the flour mixture. 

Deep fry the wings for 10-12 minutes, until color is a golden brown.

While the wings are frying prepare the buffalo sauce by combining the butter, hot sauce, pepper and garlic in a small saucepan over low heat.  Stir until the butter is melted.
When the wings are done frying remove from the oil and allow to drain for about a minute, the place in a bowl and coat in the buffalo sauce.  Serve with ranch or blue cheese and celery sticks.

  1. Buffalo wings to me are really tasty and I love to eat them with cheese and some spicy chilli sauce. But I have seen many people don't prefer to eat such wings.
