HOOTERS BUFFALO CHICKEN WINGS
1 cup all purpose flour
1 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon paprika
1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
1/2 teaspoon cayenne pepper
1/4 teaspoon black pepper
14 chicken wing segments
1/2 cup butter
1/2 cup Frank’s Original Hot Sauce
In a shallow dish, combine flour, salt, paprika, garlic powder, and peppers. Coat chicken entirely in the flour mixture; refrigerate coated wings for 1 hour; coat chicken again with remaining flour mixture.
In a 2-quart saucepan, heat butter and hot sauce just until butter melts; turn heat to low and keep warm on stove top.
Deep-fry chicken, 8 - 10 pieces at a time, in 375 degree oil (vegetable oil, canola oil, or peanut oil) for 13 minutes, turning once or twice. Drain chicken on a wire cooling rack for 30 seconds, then immediately toss fried chicken in buffalo sauce mixture and remove with a slotted spoon. Repeat with remaining chicken. Adjusting the spiciness of the sauce:
As is, the recipe produces a medium sauce. To change the amount of spiciness, simply adjust the butter to hot sauce ratio:
- Mild: Use 3/4 cup butter and 1/4 cup hot sauce.
- Hot: Use 1/4 cup butter and 3/4 cup hot sauce.
